My Edno constantly nagging me to reduce T3 I resist and as I say I am feeling better for taking it . she prescribes it 60 mcg per day but writes to my gp saying I am well and doing good but that she suggests lowering the amount however I am reluctant to do so.
She sends me to Rheumatologist for bones as she says T3 will damage my bones. Rhuematologist says he could give me an infusion as my hip reading is -4.5 but my spine is -2.8 however he said he will not give me anything whilst I am taking something which is detrimental to my bones. ie T3 he went on about me using T3 for all the wrong reasons and how bad it is for bones.He was quite nasty, I tried to explain I take T3 because it keeps me without too many hypo symptoms and relatively healthy and that I am not using it to try and loose weight because it doesn't work like that. He is basically refusing to treat me. he is about to write with the dexa scan results to me and my gp. If he repeats this threat not to treat me (I have already told him I don't want an infusion as I am having a lot of dental work done at the moment so it would not be sensible, also I cannot take adcal as it upsets my stomach, and have asked him if there is anything else I can take that will help protect my bones) Who should I turn to would it be the CCG. both the endo and Rheumo work in the same hospital and I feel they are ganging up on me in order to stop me taking T3. I think at the moment our CCG have not issued a mandate on T3 as my gp is still issuing prescription, although a couple of years ago he said he was not going to keep supplying as it was so expensive and I went to the CCG and asked them why he was refusing it to me and they must have told him to continue as he has been supplying ever since. It's so hard to get the medics to treat and do the proper tests at the moment endo refused to do antibodies but has agreed to do B12 nobodies I have to ask for colesterol each time. I take 250mg Thyroxine and 60 mg T3 have reduced T3 from 120mg to 60 mg cant say this reduction has helped put on a lot of weight have manage with the help of my pharmacist to optimise T3 effect and loose some of the weight do swimming ,yoga twice a week play bowls Run an Art Society and take responsibility for my health. take vitamin D + K2 and added more calcium through diet take B100 complex Magnesium celinium evening primrose vitamin e But it's getting harder every day when the medical world put up barriers and make thing hard for you.
