I had my first appointment with the endo this morning, I have been diagnosed hypothyroid/autoimmune thyroiditis for 2-3 years.
TSH 0.02 (reference range 0.50-5.00)
Free Thyroxine 6.9 ( 10-25)
Free T3 5.4. (4.3-8.1)
I am on 50mcg T4 one day and 75mcg the next.
I was self sourcing T3 50mcg a day.
He said that I am on too much medication as my TSH is dangerously low and will cause muscular and skeletal harm. When I said T3 suppresses TSH he told me I was wrong. He said I need to rest more and that my tiredness, hair loss, brain fog, feeling cold all the time, depressed now and then, inability to lose weight, dry skin etc etc wasn’t due to being hypothyroid. Vit D, iron and B vitamins are top of range although I saw ferritin was 30.
He wants me to go for a cortisol blood test.
He wants to to remain on 50/75 mcg T4 alternatively and has prescribed me T3 recommending 25mcg one day and 50mcg the next with the view to stop as T3 does not help the body apparently.
I feel that I’m under medicated it would like a bit of advice if possible
