I am new, and at a crossroads regarding my health.
In 2012 I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid and started on levothyroxine. After 3 years of constant dose changes and no improvement in symptoms I was recommended to try T3 to help my poor conversion of T4 to T3. My levels had stabilised more but since coming off T3 4 months ago my thyroid levels have again gone all over the place.
I really feel T3 is the answer for me - I wasn't depressed, I felt warmer, constipation gone, periods lighter. To me it seems like the way forward. Could anyone please advise? I take 175mcg levothyroxine.
TSH 1.60 (0.2 -4.2)
Free T4 19.3 (12 - 22)
Free T3 4.0 (3.1 - 6.8)
