More will sign today, we've done this several times but 'sufficient' isn't enough.
It is horrendous and it just shows how the Authorities have taken the opportunity to withdraw T3 due to the cost to the NHS instead of ensuring that the other T3s that are available on a named-patient basis can be prescribed.. They may not be licenced but wont make you so unwell as levo has done.
They didn't like the fact that more patients were asking for T3 as they were not fully well on levothyroxine and they did feel much better with the addition. Also research has shown that T4/T3 combination works very well for some. Those who cannot convert T4 need T3 only. So my assumption is that it is we, the patients, who research and read and they don't. So, personal experience cannot be beaten.
You'd think they would be aware of the simple fact that levothyroxine doesn't make everyone who has hypothyroid well and relieve all symptoms.
Endocrinologists who do not have hypothyroidism do not know more than the patient. It is the patient who has the knowledge of what makes her/him feel well with normal health and can go around doing what used to be normal, i.e. work, play and exercise.
Best of all is happy and content with her thyroid hormone replacements and not searching the internet for information.
