Hello, please can someone help me with these results.
My private Endo told me to have a test to monitor my self-medicating with T3. I have been taking 1 x 25mg of T3 for about 5 months, and have decreased my Levo to 75mg. I am having some liver problems so couldn't convert very well, so my Endo said to take the liver out the equation and take my T3 directly.
Now I have just got these results and I am so very confused. I don't think I have ever felt this ill, I am still putting on weight, so tired I sleep most days & I can't drive anymore, constipated, I cry most of the time, depression & suicidal thoughts, and so many panic attacks, never sleeping at night plus other things I can't remember as I struggle to recall anything at the moment! I am only 32!!
I am just so worried that I will never lose weight or get better, I thought these results might help me in adding more T3, but now I just don't know what to do.
