Hello, I am writing to ask you advice about Hashimoto's and T3.
I am currently on Armour thyroid, should I be using only t3, has anyone moved from NDT to T3? Also I'm wondering if T3 is still available in London and if someone could recommend a doctor, my current doctor doesn't think its a good idea.
From my last panel I had the attached information. I'm currently very sluggish and depressed. I gave up smoking last month and systems seem to have increased.
Your rT3 is elevated and your FT3/rT3 ratio is low which could suggest that you are not getting sufficient free triiodothyronine (FT3) into your cells. There is currently little scientific research into the FT3/rT3 ratio, but some experts believe that this could lead to symptoms of hypothyroidism (slow metabolism) even though your thyroid hormones are at normal levels.
Thank you so much,
