I am looking for a bit of advice. I have been on T4 Levothyroxine for around 5 years now. My current dose is 125mcg. I have really bad symptoms of hair loss, memory loss, cold hands, dry skin, restless legs.
I recently had blood tests taken and the results were: TSH 4.25 ( 0.55-4.78) T4 18 (10-25) T3 4.9 (4-7).
I have seen a lot of posts regarding problems with converting T4 to T3 and whether the level I am at would be giving any of these symptoms and whether I would require to take T3 at all, and if so, what dose and how much to reduce T4 by?
I have been to my GP in Scotland and they are not willing to listen to anything even though I bring a huge bag of hair with me to the appointment.
Looking for any advice from people with a similar story.
Thanks in advance for any help!
