I have self-increased my T3 dose to 120mcg per day. My temperature is still low at times (34.5) but my bp is perfect. I feel quite well but feel that there is room for improvement as I have fibro. symptoms and sometimes brain gives up.
My GP won't increase my prescription from 60mcg so I am constantly putting in repeat prescriptions and running low on pills.
I am due to have a chat with my GP tomorrow. She may ask for repeat blood tests but as she only tests TSH and T4 I have no idea why.
Does anyone have any links to info. which would support my level of T3? I have lent her Dr P's book and told her of Dr Lowe, who I undestand was on 125mcg T3. I have a link to an extract from a book by Dr Teitelbaum which quotes Dr Lowe and says that with cellular resistance an "average" dose of 120mcg may be needed to make the patient well.
