I'm officially diagnosed Hypo by NHS. I was on 100mcg Levo, but after I ran a Blue Horizons test, which showed zero increase in FT3 (slight decrease actually) & high Reverse T3, I ditched the Levo.
I recently did a blood test & was summoned to the GP. My TSH was back to 10.17 & he wanted to know why.
T4 was 14.2 (11.0 - 22.0 pool/L)
I explained to the GP what I'd done. I took my books along to demonstrate I'm read on the subject & I explained that I don't convert synthetic T4.
He asked me what I wanted. I said well I could ask you to prescribe NDT or T3, but I know that might be difficult, so I'm going to go Private. In truth, I wouldn't tolerate some clueless (edited by Admin) Endo sticking his nose in.
GP was delighted. Said he would happily give me blood tests every 6 months.
So...I'm wondering what's the best plan of action now. I could just buy my own stuff (done it before I was diagnosed), or is there a good private doc, who can prescribe me??
I had bad reactions to NDT in the past, but in hindsight I probably did dive in on a high dose. I would be prepared to try it again & would start on the minimum dose for at least 6 weeks.
