T3

Hi I'm new to site. I have a clinical need for T3 and it was taken away. My symptoms have now gotten worse. Could someone message me a supplier. Diagnosed 2012 taking 150mcg levo. Thank you.

Welcome to the forum, Ellen1919.

Who originally prescribed T3 and who took it away, and why?

I had it prescribed by 2nd endo who identified I can't convert T4 to T3 and my levels were stable on the combi dose. Then the 2nd endo left the hospital and I was managed by another endo who says he is only a supporter of levo thanks

Ellen1919,

It's so wrong that an endo imposes his bias re T3 especially if the patient has benefitted from using it.

The BTA issued guidance that patients doing well on T3 should not have their prescriptions with-drawn. See FAQS for patients in british-thyroid-association...

If you felt you were benefitting from the addition of T3 do write to your new endo, showing him the BTA guidance, and appeal his decision.

T3 obtained without prescription will be 25mcg tablets. Buy a pillcutter and quarter or halve them to achieve the doses required.
