I've been taking additional T3 with my Levothyroxine does for 3 months now. I requested a full thyroid blood test and for some reason the NHS service decided not to test for vit D andT4! Anyway here are the results they were completed :
TSH 0.7 (0.2 - 5.5)
T3 4.6 (3.1 - 6.8)
Ferretin 95 ug/l (10.0 - 300.0)
B12 1500 ng/l (180.0 - 1000.0)
Folate 15.8 ug/l (>4.0)
I am still supplementing with Selenium and Magnesium, Vitamin B12, D, K2, Methylfolate and iron. I still have aches and pain and debilitating fatigue, although I can now drive again for short journeys. My limit for standing is 30 or 40 minutes.
So here,'s the thing; the additional T3 has not made a huge difference ( still hoping for that magic pill!) and my GP has arranged for me to see a Rheumatology Clinic next month, is now the time to switch to NDT?
