Just wanted to say I saw the same NHS Endo yesterday and again she was lovely.
I was nervous when I sat down as she had told me to reduce my Levo if I was adding T3.... but I decided to remain on my 100mcg Levo and take 6.25mcg with it in the mornings. After some very good advice on here I started to take another 6.25mcg in the afternoon but felt unwell on it and stop the afternoon dose.
I sat down and the first thing she said was 'how are you feeling?' I explained that I was still tired in the afternoon and then proceeded to tell her my current doses of meds. She said that was fine as my TSH is 0.05 and my FT3 was 3. Something which is still low and outside the normal range. She said she wants me to take another 6.25mcg in the afternoon to try and raise my FT3. She also told me to remain on my Iron tablets as I'm right in the middle of normal and doesn't want me to stop taking them as when I do my Iron goes below normal range and I feel ill. She is also going to test me for Celiac disease.
The question I didn't ask was can I take my T3 afternoon dose under my tongue? I take my Levo and T3 in the morning before 6am and then my Iron tablet at 11am and my B12 vits after lunch about 1... I've read I've got to not eat for 2 hours before and an hour after taking T3 but I'm always grazing and love a Cuppa. If I put it under my tongue does it matter if I've eaten or not? I take Selenium in the afternoon but can take that at night with my VitD and K2 to make sure I'm not taking vitamins near the T3 dose.
Any thoughts really welcome
