I’ve now just rung my Dr’s for my blood results and for the 3rd time in as many weeks they have still not got my T4 and T3 test results despite me presenting with a 5kg gain in weight and a return of my symtoms when I was first diagnosed with Hypothyroidism.
My Dr at my last annual blood test decided to reduce my T4 intake despite my protest I went along with it stating that I expected my symptoms to return. I was right to the letter. Since the prescription change I have gained yet another 5kg and look like I’m pregnant. I have been waiting for my T3 results for 5weeks but the local bloods have not done them despite the Dr’s request.
I have bought some Cytomel and I’ve decided to trial 25ug per day to see if I can get this weight off again. Has anyone any suggestions as it is clear now that the NHS does not seem to want to help. I currently alternate 125ug-150ug of T4 each day should I reduce this or just pop the Cytomel on top??
