I've been quite happy on T3 only for a few years now but about a year ago locum doctor didn't like my low TSH and referred me back to endo. A different one than I had seen before. She wanted to change my prescription, lowering T3 and adding T4 until I was on T4 only. She didn't tell me this at the time but put it in writing to my gp. So I never changed my prescription and carried on as I was on T3. This has flagged up now so I was called into my own gp. He wants me to add T4 to keep the endo. happy and so the bloods come back ok. We agreed to add 25mcg. T4 and reduce T3 from 80 to 60 mcg.
Last time I asked what is T4 neede for I was told heart. This time I was told bones.
So still not sure if adding T4 will be good for my health or not and I've just read on Thyroid uk that too much T4 speeds up bone loss.
So confused. Can anyone help please.
