Hi all I posted a while ago asking why endo would ask for bloods 4-6 hours after T3. I then had tests taken privately for fasting to compare. They turned out to be very similar. I asked endo why he had specified time. He said he wanted to be sure that T3 was giving me a good level as I have conversion problems and it can show a bit low otherwise as it isn't in the system very long. He says many would now consider me to be overmedicated but as I feel better that Ive been in years that is what matters! What a relief. Main problem now is sourcing the T3 and I am using the online for Thybon. He was happy to prescribe 20mcg tabs for me to cut up as I am on 5mcg x2 daily but these are the dearest tabs. I had asked if he could send a script before my appointment as I was running out of tabs but he said he wanted to wait for appointment (fair enough). I have ordered today and posted the script but am panicked about being a few days without. Hopefully it will all come super fast. Here are my two sets of results. The first 4 and half hours after T3. The second fasting and no meds for 24 hours. I was previously very low for D3 at 37 I had loading dose from GP and am taking maintenance 2000iu plus K2 per day. he didn't reduce my lego do you think it should be reduced now I am on low dose T3? I have lost half a stone in 6 weeks, great skin improved bowel and more energy!!! I am so happy. Grateful for any comments.
