My wife is currently on 25mcg T4 and 10mcg T3, but has never really felt well while taking Levo T4 with or without T3. Earlier this year I stopped her Levo for 5 weeks, and she felt much better on the 10mcg T3 (Lio) only, but at an Endocrinologist's consultation, he went berserk, saying I was trying to kill her, and insisted that she go back on to 50mcg Levo plus 10mcg T3. She immediately felt worse, so we went to our GP after a week and complained and he reduced Levo to 25mcg. Although better on 25 than 50, she was still not well, so I have again stopped the Levo, added another 2.5mcg T3, and once again she felt better after a couple of days, and remains so after a week.
My problem is that it is highly unlikely that our GP will respond favorably to me changing her treatment, given the endo's attitude, and as they usually kow-tow to the consultants, and we have another endo appointment in 5 weeks.
How I do best resolve the treatment profile while staying on the right side of the GP & consultant within the NHS, and ensuring that my wife continues to feel at least as well as she does?
