Update & recommendations please

Hi, I had my GP appointment yesterday and the GP made it VERY clear that they will NOT be funding T3 for me! Cut a long story short....as a “compromise” she is happy to refer me to an Endocrinologist of my choice (as our local one had previously declined a referral based on my TSH & T4 results alone).

So, I am on the hunt for a good Endocrinologist that will take me under their wing and help manage me back to health.

As I know now that I have to purchase my own T3 I am hoping you guys will be able to help with,

A) a good quality T3 supplier

B) suggest a starting dose with T3

C) based on your own experience, recommend a helpful Endocrinologist 😊

I would be very grateful if you would please PM me. If you need any further information just let me know. Thank you in advance. Mandy 🙏

So they didn't even test T3?

Hi yes they did and it came back low out of range. I did put my results on a previous post. I have had my T3 twice in the last 6 months, one private and one NHS & both came back as LOW...

I am sorry your T3 was withdrawn. We had a Petition some months ago about the withdrawal.
