I've posted twice before which gives some more info about my current condition. I have a hospital checkup on Tuesday and am going to try and request some additional testing. My private Blue Horizon test 11 showed I have a Vit D and B12 deficiency (even though I've been supplementing heavily for about 5 months). It suggested i may have issues with absorbing vitamins.
My question here is about T3 and RT3. Would it be possible for my thyroid to be overactive, producing too much t4 but not properly converting to t3? Weight gain was an issue before diagnosis and i have gained 10kgs in the last year with treatment. Could the issue of weight lie in a lack of t3, slowing my metabolism?
Doctors don't believe my weight to be relevant and Im tired of not being taken seriously. I'm 21 and have gained 16kgs in 2-3 years due to this. I work out regularly and have recently gone gluten free but so far nothing has helped weight loss
This is the article that brought my attention to T3/RT3 and weight issues
