I am 53 years old and I have hypothyroidism which I was confirmed as having in 2013 but I think I have had it for very many years before. My GP noticed I have a long history of being unable to convert T4 to T3 and I was referred to an endocrinologist who agreed my conversion was poor.
The endocrinologist said I would be better adding T3 to my 150mcg Levothyroxine. I started feeling better on this and then my endocrinologist left the hospital and I was given a new endocrinologist who I now see, he has been saying that he will not support the use of T3 because he is anti-T3.
I am still waiting to see my endocrinologist 5 months on and he said he will keep me on clinic list until November 2018. I went back to my GP and he has said he cannot understand why I was taken off T3 in the first place because my levels looked better and if I felt better what was the problem?
I had bloods done to see if thyroid is functioning ok, I don't feel ok at all. I have been waking up early, getting headaches, bloating and trapped wind, joint pain, dry skin, cracks at corners of mouth, irritability, hard stool, depression, memory loss, dry mouth.
Advice appreciated, thank you in advance.
