Hi - seeing a Fantastic Endo in Brighton ... He has just put me on a combined therapy of 125 levo and 12.5 mg of T3 twice a day ( so 25mg a day in total )...
I was on 150 levo before but my results were not improving - so my first question is what is 25mg of T3 equivalent to ?
Secondly my Cortisol result was high at 549 ( range 166 - 507 morning range ) - my concern is that I have horrific insomnia and large weight gain around the tummy - this level of cortisol cant be helping at all ... he hasn't suggested anything to do with the cortisol yet and I wondered what questions I should be asking and what is the treatment for high cortisol ?
Many thanks for any help you can offer
