I went today and saw a retired NHS endocrinologist who is now practising privately. Despite him saying that my sleep problems were probably not due to being hypothyroid and at just over 10 stone, I wasn’t fat (I used to be 8 stone at my heaviest l), he was willing to allow me to try Liothyronine for 6 weeks- 2 doses per day of 5mcg and wrote me a script. He is contacting my GP with what was agreed - I have to reduce my Levothyroxene from 100mcg to 75mcg. I’m hoping someone I know in Germany can get me the tablets. Just awaiting her response. Fingers crossed.
TSH: 0.03 range 0.27 - 4.2
FT4: 21.8 range 11 -22
FT3: 5 range 3.1 - 6.8
Any advice on obtaining T3 would be appreciated. Many many thanks for support to date and for giving me the strength and knowledge to keep on moving forward.
Information about sending your private prescription to Germany here
Hopefully it has been written correctly, ie
(or 200 tablets)
Milte - 100
Sij - 5ug twice daily
I hope you manage to get your 5mcg ones, pity your endo didn't give you a source though.
