Hello, some of you with good memories may know that a while ago i was sourcing my own T3. My husband, who is an ex body builder with bad experiences of online bought meds, is terrified I might do some damage with self bought T3. As such, i've reverted to using prescribed levo. Since then I didn't feel a great deal different but i have put on almost 2 stone in just over a year. Weight was already a problem and now it is desperate. with my latest bloods my doctor upped my dose of levo to 150mcg per day. last night I fell asleep at tea time and I was out for 2 hours. I feel my symptoms are getting worse, not better. I already believed I had a conversion problem, now i'm convinced the more levo i'm putting in, the more Rt3 my body is making, giving the opposite of the desired effect while showing very suppressed TSH. My body temp this morning was 36.8 but it was sweltering in the bedroom as my 6 year old decided to join us in bed and i'd already got up to put the alarm off. I'm going to monitor my temp for a month to see what that looks like.
I'm going to ask my doc for a full blood screen. Does anyone else have experience of increased RT3 as levo dose is increased? Dr. Westin Childs seems to think this is a real problem.
I'm desperate to find out how to maximise conversion and reduce Rt3 without having to resort to T3.
Is anyone still getting NDT out of the NHS?
