I'm new on here and hoping there are some more experienced people who can help me with some advice on T3. I have finally been prescribed T3 privately but am struggling to find a reputable, cheapish supplier to obtain it from - many US sites appear to be aimed at weight loss/athletes (and sold alongside steroids!). Please can you let me know any suppliers you can recommend and any other advice that might be useful for someone starting T3 treatment. I'm also hoping to travel abroad soon, are there any limitations to travelling with these drugs (might just be being overcautious after seeing it being sold alongside the steroids!).
HISTORY: Diagnosed Hashimoto's in 2001/2002 following glandular fever, suffered chronic fatigue syndrome afterwards, T4 treatment gradually raised to 200mcg daily. Never felt 100% and after settling in one area I investigated further and was diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency in 2011. Improved but still not 100%, GPs began reading my bloods incorrectly and gradually lowered my T4 to 150mcg daily, by 2015 I was just high on TSH and high T4 in my bloods. This progressed to this year where I was 19 TSH and normal T4 blood levels. Referred to endocrinologist who raised T4 treatment back to 200mcg daily but T4 blood results showed high again with marginal drop to TSH, T3 was borderline low. I've never suffered from overactive symptoms and endocrinologist has finally agreed that I may have T4 resistance, hence beginning T3.
Currently on 175mcg T4 daily, Vit D levels are normal, Coeliac/Rheumatoid Arthritis negative on bloods, Cortisol/short synacthen test normal.
Any advice you have would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much,
