I've been self medicating for 2 years with T3 only meds for Hypothyroidism and high RT3. I was recently been seen by an endocrinologist as I was having intermittent dizziness and heart flutters and I needed advice on my dosage of T3. Unfortunately, this endo doesn't not or cannot agree with T3 or NDT medication.
Following advice from the endo I came off T3 over an 8 week period prior to the test. I also stopped supplements and vitamins. It is now 3months since I've taken any thyroid medication.
There was a whole ream of tests but below I've put my thyroid results and out of range labs. Endo says im subclinical hypothyroid and is advising my GP to give 25mcg of liquid Levothyroxine with retesting in 8 weeks, at this time I will get FT3 tested too.
Im wondering if 25mcg of Levo will be enough. I've had a slow decline in health and fatigued since coming off meds. I have to wait for my GP to receive the consultants letter before I get a prescription. I do have the tablet form of Levo and wondered if I should take this is the interim period whilst waiting for a script. I'm also wondering if I should add in some T3....will this affect results of further blood tests if I do?
