Herewith my wife's latest Blue Horizon test results. Apologies as I am not able to copy and paste it here in tabular layout.
Next week we see the Endo after an NHS blood test.
Three months ago the Endo recommended an increase in Levo from 50mcg to 75mcg for 4 weeks, then increase again to 100mcg. After the first increase my wife initially felt better, then back to the tired, brain foggy level of earlier, and after the second increase even worse. All this time she was also on 10mcg T3. In desperation, I stopped the Levo altogether, and from 5 weeks ago increased the T3 to 15mcg per day in quarter tabs. There is absolutely no question that she now feels much better on T3 only than when on Levo + T3. But these results suggest that she still requires more of something.
Two years ago I was convinced that Levo did not suit her, and put her on NDT, but as some may recall, fought to have the NHS treat her properly, hence the prescribed low dose T3 + Levo.
I would still prefer her not to be on Levo at all, as it clearly does not suit her.
Ammunition to take to our next week appointment with Endo will be useful.
