I have just seen my doctor today, as I’m getting low of Nature Throid and finding it difficult to replenish as the cost for NDT has gone up with sterling not good against the dollar and import charges, I am taking 3 grains of NDT AND 25mcg of T3. T3 I buy in also. I asked my doctor today because of cost, is it possible I can go back on T4 and I will still buy in T3 and take both . ( my doctor will not prescribe T3)
My doctor has said today he will give me T4 on the condition I do not take T3 . I do not want to take T4 on it’s own , I have gone down that road before.
I have no thyroid
Can I stay on T3 only and if so what mg should I be taking?
I had a blood test 3 weeks ago , the results are : TSH - 0.02, Serum free T3 - 5.9
I have been very open with my doctor for many years
Thank you everyone for your help
