My DNA results have highlighted genes DIO1/DIO2 as BAD. This must be why previously I felt so awful on T4 only.
I currently take 150mcg T4 and 20mcg T3 and can function, but there’s so much room for improvement.
Would I now benefit from T3 only?
I also previously had T3 mono- therapy (after TT and prior to RAI for Thyroid Cancer) and at that time I felt dreadful, but I was a total wreck anyway due to circumstances.
My consultant insisted that I don’t have a clinical need for T3 as my blood tests are fine and show conversion, but fortunately he agreed to prescribe it to see whether it would help.
I have always found my consultants rather dismissive as my blood work always looks ok to them. They would never accept that my symptoms are thyroid related, although I always knew that they were.
Now I have proof, are they likely to take me seriously, and help me get properly well? Anyone got experience of this?
I also had MTHFR gene highlighted as bad regarding B12 and Folate. Thoughts?
Also interested to know if this DNA result
could account for extreme tiredness in my youth, with blood tests always coming back normal?
Thanks for any input. 🙂
