Hello everyone


Hi every one.

I am a 59 year old female who has had a severe ME diagnosis in 1999 which has remitted and relapsed in equal measure since then.

I am frequently house bound and majorly bed and sofa surf due to lack of energy.

In 2001I was found to have Hashimotos disorder and then in 2003 my TSH went up to 8.1 so I was put on T4.

After two years of still being very unwell I managed to get my T3 levels tested and these were low.

My consultant fought my GP and I was prescribed 10mg T3 supplement and am now on 100-125 mg T4alternate days and 10 mg of T3.

Consultant is being hassled by my GP to stop my T3. She is aware that some of her patients do source their own online but NHS protocol means she is unable to comment further.

HELP. Can any one advise of a reliable source of T3 that could be shipped to UK?

It seems from reading previous threads that the supply chain has become scant.

I’ve only got enough left for next three months and do not want to be so ill that I can’t get out of bed for weeks on end again.

Next time I see my Endocrinologist she will be checking my FT3 and FT4, vit D, B12, Ferritin.

My last results were TSH 0.2 FT4 22 FT3 3.1.

My hair has also thinned considerably since the menopause. I have high cholesterol but lowish blood pressure 102/73. I also take treatment for oesteopania. My wight is around 9 stone 7 lbs. I’m 5’5”.

Any advice Sincerely welcome.

Please PM if necessary.
