Hector - when on NDT we need to see FT3, that's the most important result. Total T3 is of no real use.

Ferritin could do with a slight nudge up to half way through it's range (108 with your range) so if you eat liver once every couple of weeks that should help.

Hi SeasideSusie thats all the tests that my GP does im afraid thanks for the info on ferritin will try and get it up a bit more .

Suggest you get FT3 checked privately

Also vitamin D essential

The most important question is 'how were you feeling on your dose of NDT'.

I am sorry they've stopped your NDT and some of our members source their own when levothyroxine doesn't suit them.

If you want to source your own NDT, put up a new post and ask for a Private Message to be sent to you. It is not permitted on the open forum to state where to get prescription meds.
