T3 recommended by endocrinologist

Poppygrey profile image

Hello, I am being treated by an endocrinologist for under active thyroid and keep coming to a halt with treatment when try to increase medication. I was previously on levothyroxine but reacted badly so now on Erfa thyroid but again when try to increase dose I feel awful. Endocrinologist thinks should try t3 only but has said to self source as nhs won’t prescribe and he will monitor. Could somebody please pm me a source to buy from that has safe and easy payment methods. Many thanks

To comply with forum guidelines, and as Poppygrey has requested, replies by PM only please. I will close the post to replies so that no information is inadvertently posted here.

Poppygrey I do find it strange that these endos are happy to monitor patients on T3 and tell them to self source, but don't provide information about where they can safely source it. Does he even know how T3 should be introduced and titrated?

As a precaution, you may wish to check with myself or one of the Admin team to see if we have feedback on any recommendations you are sent, there are some known unscrupulous suppliers.
