Dear Forum Friends,
Can you advise if I should add T4 to my current regime?
I have DIO2 double mutation and was diagnosed hypothyroid last year,
I have been taking T3 25mcg daily and have now upped to 50 mcgs per day as symptoms not significantly improved. A different doctor from the one who originally prescribed T3 (but same surgery in Hong Kong) has looked at the results below (which were taken when on 25 mcgs T3 daily) and now prescribed T4 50 mcgs daily in addition to the agreed 50 mcgs T3 daily.
But surely with my conversion problem this is not a good idea to add T4! Please advise ... results he was looking at are below.
Many thanks for reading this post, best wishes to all, DP.
