buying T3 online

Hi There, could someone please message me where I can buy T3 online reliably? fighting a losing battle with my GP to even trial it. Hypothyroidsim for the last 10 years, on a dose of 200mcg levothyroxine, T4 - 12, T3, 3.1, doctor just advised to up my thyroxine dosage by 25mcg for a month but last time he told me to do this I just had palpitations, big lumps in my neck without any desired results on my energy, weight, hair!

private message with a recommendation or link would be very much appreciated.

Thanks Kerry

What was your TSH? And can you add the ranges for your results please, ranges vary from lab to lab and going by the ranges we often see here your FT4 could be low in range which could be in balance with your FT3 and in that case you don't need T3 at this stage.

My guess is there's something else going on which your GP has no knowledge of but we often see on the forum when this question is asked.

Do you have raised thyroid antibodies? Have both TPO and TG antibodies been tested?

Have you had vitamins and minerals tested:

Vit D

B12

Folate

Ferritin

All these need to be optimal for thyroid hormone to work, so if they're not then they need to be addressed before considering adding T3.

Welcome to the forum, Kerryatkinson.

What is your TSH and can you add the lab ref ranges to FT4 and FT3 results?
