So after patiently waiting since August for my check up with a endo at Basingstoke Hospital. I get there to be soooo disappointed. First my endo referred me to someone else because he doesn't believe in T3. The doctor I did get refused to believe that I might have an absorpition issue. Why? Because my TSH is fine....WTF??? Then I get told that I could not have felt better when I was taking T3...how would the doctor know? There were my last two test results.
(TSH 1.42) (T3 3.90) (T4 9.40) (50mcg levo, 20mcg T3) - I didn't take the T3 for 48 hours before the blood test.
(TSH 0.27) (T3 3.70) (125mcg levo) Doc wanted to trial me coming off the T3 and increasing T4.
I have never in my life felt so let down and disappointed and just really defeated. I am doing everything I possible can from my side. Gluten, Dairy and sugar free. Stress relief exercises. Various supplements.
End result was doc is writing to the GP for prescribe T3 but doubts I will get it. Referring me to a gut specialist and I have to the doc in 3 months time. Not sure I want though....
