I'm after some advice regarding T3.I've had an Underactive Thyroid for the last 13 years but only diagnosed 6 years ago. Since then it has been a constant battle of being advised to increase/decrease my meds every few months- it never seems to stabilise. That being said, I've not had my T3 etc tested, only ever TSH as the Doctors at my surgery and the Endo I've seen refuse point blank to accept that T3 has anything to do with anything!Just before Christmas I (probably stupidly, but incredibly frustrated by now) decided to stop my Levo and I felt better than I had in years-no aches or pains, loads more energy, felt less hungry and lost weight. Unfortunately I then got a cold, which then turned out to be whooping cough, the Doctor insisted on testing my TSH which was due at the same time and it was through the roof! Needless to say I realise I obviously need something!However, I don't feel I'm getting better on Levo and get more sympoms and don't feel 'with it'. I've contemplated going private to try NDT but the potential cost scares me!After researching loads, people seem to suggest adding T3 - has anyone found this effective and also is Uni-Pharm (think that's what it's called) still the best place for it?
Also, going to order up some medichecks blood tests of my own to check EVERYTHING- so fed up of Doctors!
Any advice would be much appreciated
