Having successfully appealed to the CCG to be allowed to get prescribed T3 in addition to the Levothyroxine treatment, as my Consultant Endocrinologist diagnosed that I do not convert T4 to T3, I have now had the first blood test results since starting the combination treatment. Although I feel an improvement since the change of medication, I still have some symptoms - anxiety, weight gain, loss of outer hairs of my eyebrows & eyelashes, dry fine hair (on my head - unlike my hair before getting the UAT) and tiredness especially in the afternoon. Before introducing the T3, I was on 75mcg of Levo and my blood test on that medication i was below range for both T3 and T4 but my TSH was also considered too low. My new results are;
Free T3 3.30 so just below range (3.50 - 6.5)
Free T4 11 so just in range (10 - 20)
TSH 0.27 so just below range (0.35 - 5.50)
The Endo has advised continuing the current dosage of 50mcg of Levo and 10mcg of the T3. I would appreciate the opinions of other under active Thyroid patients, as I think I could benefit in an increase in the dose.
