I have an appointment in two months time with an NHS endocrinologist, and I've seen posts on here about is it NICE guidelines? Basically, are NHS endocrinologists ever able to prescribe T3?
I've recently had another blood test done (fasting 24 hrs), and it still shows high TSH and high T4. I have quite extreme hypo symptoms. Although my system seems topped up with T4, not a lot is converting to T3. I'd like to know if NHS can ever give T3, because this indicates there's a conversion issue. Here's results as follows:-
TSH 5.79 (range 0.27-4.2)
Free Thyroxine 22.8 pmol/l (range 12-22)
free T3 4.4 pmol/L (Range 3.1-6.8)
