Hi, I'm new to this forum and was looking for some advice, I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 2years ago, initially it was borderline and so was give 10 Levo, I'm now on 175 levo, my doc says my bloods are fine, including my iron levels, I recently asked what exactly was the issue as I don't feel any better for being on the levo and am I'm two minds on whether to stop taking it but am scared.
I still have hair loss, and am putting on weight when I stared the levo I was size 18-20 I'm now size 24.
The doctor told me from the start that production isn't the issue is distribution that the problem, I have asked her re t3 after reading a few blogs on here and she is very dismissive saying there is no definitive study to suggest it will help.
I'm scared of purchasing t3 online as I don't know what I would be getting and I'm not confident purchasing drugs online.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I should approach this with my doctor, do I demand to be referred to a endocrinologist or try reasoning with the doc again.
Any comments will be appreciated.
