I've been taking 150mcg T4 and 40mcg T3 for the last few months and feeling much better. (previously on T4 only for 2 1/2 years since TT). My latest blood test required TSH, FT4 and T3. I phoned the surgery yesterday to get the results and as usual the receptionist refused to give the figures to me, then said it says I have to see the doctor for a routine appointment. I pressed her for the figures but she said she wasn't allowed to give them to me! So I made an appointment to see my GP next Monday.
I am pondering what the results might show and what my GP might try to do to my medication. I had heard that the blood tests are a waste of time if you are taking T3, but what about if you are taking a combination of T4/T3? Can anyone advise please? I know that my TSH was suppressed (0.0something on previous tests when I was just on T4).
Does anyone have any tips, so that I can be pre-armed with info just in case my GP gets difficult.
