Had telephone call with my endocrinologist this morning and no increase for me as my tsh is below range. He has to go the conventional route, blah blah. Very disappointed.
What shocked me was ‘what is the problem with you doing it yourself?’ His exact words. I replied that I didn’t have a problem but it was a question of sourcing legitimate t3. His answer was ‘oh yes you will need to be careful’ Ok Einstein.
I asked even for 5mcg or altering the t4/t3 but was met with flippancy that I cut the conversation short. Shooting myself in the foot as I forgot to ask for a repeat 🙄.
Upshot is I can keep what I’m on but that’s my lot. Do I feel better? At least he asked. Not when my t3 is only 10% higher in the range at 40% and my t4 is minus something, not really.
Anyway for those who are interested that’s what I got. Zilch. I am obviously disappointed but let’s face it, it was only to be expected. At least I keep the 20mcg I did have.
