I have waited 3 months to see a specific endocrinologist who can prescribe NDT. On arrival at the hospital I saw a registrar not the consultant requested. I have had RAI but am only on 75mcg and 100mcg on alternate days,however my blood test results are:
TSH 0.17 0.3-4.2
Free T4 18.1. 12-22
My symptoms are aching muscles on walking any gradient i.e stairs, excessive sweating and weight gain.
The registrar said that the muscle aches and sweating could be from a number of things (meaning age related ) and due to my results I basically had to put up with it. I told him I wanted to try NDT and he said they didn't prescribe it. I told him the consultant did prescribe it as I had researched him on line and he does! The registrar said he would write to him and quickly ushered me out of the consulting room. What a waste of time.
So what do I do with my dose of levoxathyrine as my results say I am over replaced. And how much thyroid do I have left if I am only on such a small dose of Levo? Very confused. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
