Good morning guys.
Firstly hello, I am new here as I desperately need to talk to people for advice with thyroid meds, everyone's favourite topic right??
I'm Corey, I'm 24yo male. I started off with a tsh level of 136!!! I had absolutely no symptoms, I was lean and full of life and emotion! Ever since I have been building up to 150mcg levothyroxine, which have put my test readings back to 'normal'. However, I have now put on a ton of weight, I have every hypo symptom there is, I show little emotion and my brain for sends me all over the place.
So, come off the levo, surely!? I have weaned down to 75 now, and mentally I'm great, but physically I'm shattered. I have bought myself some T3, and plan to add 12.5mcg in the mix. Is this enough? Is it a good place to start? Docs and endos will not help me! As far as they are concerned I am 'fixed'
Thankyou in advance guys xx
