Saw a so called thyroid specialist today. First endo in over three years. I was he would understand when I explained what I'm taking (200mcg levothyroxine and 50mg Tiromel. Straight away he said I am overdosing myself and I can get heart failure along with other serious problems because t3 is dangerous. He wouldn't give me a blood test, so how would he know I'm taking too much. I told him other people do fine on t4 and t3 and some even do wheel on t3 alone. Ignore them he told me. Don't believe anything on this site he said. I wouldn't need this site if I had been properly treated in the first place I told him. I explained all my symptoms but he brushed them off saying they may lo not be thyroid related. Rubbished. I used to be active and loved my job as a postman, but went downhill after the op. He wants me to come off Tiromel over six months so my Tsh can rise then decide himself whether I need t3. I said I feel a slight improvement on t3 as I was having trouble converting t4 to t3. I doubt it he said. You would be one of only six in the world who cannot convert . You would have a more chance winning the lottery. Now I can see why I read so many posts from frustrated people regarding their endos. Oh and I can't have Hashimotos without a thyroid gland.
