I posted yesterday about what I'd assumed to be straight forward Hashimoto's but was looking more like secondary (Cushing's) hypothyroidism. Does anyone know, bearing in mind conventional medicine won't treat me or even acknowledge there is an issue, how I could get hold of T3? I need to get off NDT, assuming the T4 is making things worse and I may be experiencing some RT3. My latest test results are as follows:
TSH 0.47 (0.27 - 4.2) I assume being suppressed by NDT
Free Thyroxine 15 (12 - 22)
Total Thyroxine 82 (59 - 154)
Free T3 4.2 (3.1 - 6.8)
Both sets of antibodies are below 10, which appears to rule out Hashimoto's.
I've also just had my latest Cortisol tests back:
Morning 6.2 (5.9 - 14)
Afternoon 4.9 (2.0 - 10)
Evening 1.4 (1 - 4)
Night time 11 (0.4 - 3)
If anyone can tell me things are going to be ok and tell me why I'm struggling so much having never been ill before too, that would be great.
Just for reference, Ferritin 150 (120-400) and Folate 40 (19 - 70). I've had to withdraw from Fumerate supplement because of the pain I was in
