I've just received my current Medichecks results.
Taking 75mcg Levothyroxine and 25mcg T3
TSH *0.112 (0.27 - 4.20)
Free T4 *11.9 (12.00 - 22.00)
Free T3 5.07 (3.10 - 6.80)
Still very low on energy and my hair is very thin. I've gained another 2kg in weight in the last 6 weeks.
I was previously on 100 mcg levo and 12.5 T3 and the private doctor said I had to reduce the levo to 75 mcg if I was going to increase the T3. He said to just take another 6.25 of T3 but I felt so weary after 2 weeks that I started taking 12.5 mcg T3 twice a day.
Before I started the T3, I was taking 125 mcg levo, but had severe hypothyroid symptoms and now I feel like all I'm doing is taking the same amount but in a different format.
I'm seeing the NHS endo next Tuesday and was hoping to persuade him to prescribe T3 if this trial was successful but if I'm not taking enough it won't work.
