No T3 and weight gain

Really down after starting to feel great , lose weight and feel alive again while self medicating with a little T3 .....doctor wasn't too pleased, even though I told him how good I feel. T3 as ran out can't get any more and the doctor deffinatly Won't prescribe it ....1 stone heavier now .....is there any way to stop it ......eating healthy but seem to be gaining not losing. ..so disheartening .

Lorrainewilson64,

What are your thyroid results on Levothyroxine only? If you are undermedicated you won't be able to lose weight and will gain weight.

Some people need T3 to feel well. If you want T3 write a post asking members to send you a private message where to source it.
