Hi all. Thank you to this group for all the help and advice that you give us. This morning I had an endocrinologist appointment and it went so well. Essentially the endocrinologist I saw agreed that I have issues converting T4 to T3 and levothyroxine alone was keeping my THS and FT4 levels at optimum but my T3 level was too low. This has been a long and gruelling journey to get to this point and I’m so happy right now but could also cry. I gave up my job and was diagnosed and treated for ME/ CFS. The last few years have almost broken me at times but this group has had a massive impact on me. Thank you again.
I have been taking metavive II for the last few months, have changed to a strictly gluten free diet and take a range of supplements and feel so much better. My endocrinologist said that he would be willing to prescribe me T3 to go alongside Levothyroxine/T4 but that it might not be as cost effective as the metavive that I’m currently taking. Putting the money issue aside, i’m not sure if I should stick with metavive or trial T4/T3. Has anyone else experienced this? I’d be grateful for any advice from this fantastic group.
