Hi, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's 4 years ago. Started on a slow 25mg increasing by 25mg for the first 12 months because I seemed to be sensitive to the levothyroxine, joint pains, etc. Feeling well but have started to feel more tired in the mornings and getting cracked, painful skin in my ears, scalp and a little in the summer months on my heels, this has started in the past year. Have read so many articles on Hashimoto's and underactive thyroid and one in particular seemed to indicate that T3 synthoid might be a way forward? My endocrinologist offered me 18 months ago NDT which I declined because I feel well on the levothyroxine, plus I am vegetarian. Has anyone got any advice they could offer? GP will give me another refferal to my endocrinologist through NHS if I ask.
Keen to hear if anyone has been down this route?
