I have recently joined here and been a silent reader, appreciate all your efforts and help.
I am hypo and was prescribed 100mg Levothyroxine 4 or 5 years ago, it suddenly felt a lot better and I though I was improving. But a year or so ago, I started losing my hair, also lost half my eyebrows, my face got really puffy. I saw my gp and he increased my dose to 125mg, I felt better but not completely well, my gp then increased my dose to 150 in alternate days. I am feeling much better, I do heavy exercise 3 days a week, play badminton once and run. I am in overall good shape. But my face is still puffy and I can feel the weight on my face throughout the day. My GP agrees that my face is not right but refuses to do anything about it. I mentioned T3 and he said there's no evidence that it works.
My recent TSH Level is 0.31 and T4 is 14.2.
I read a lot of discussions here, and finally ordered 25mg Uni Farma T3 (Cytomel).
I am planning to take 100mg Levo and half of 25mg T3 a day.
I just wanted to ask more knowledgeable people here if this is the right way.
