I was referred to endo who agreed to a combination T3/T4 trial and am now discharged from endo as he considers I am now ok on combination. I asked for an increase in T3 as I still have symptoms eg low body temp, very tired and unable to lose weight despite 800 cals a day and gym 3/4 times per week. He basically said tough i have to put up with it as he is not prepared to increase meds t3 and t4 levels are low but he said they vary anyway but tsh level is 0.4 so will not increase meds as he has to keep me 'safe'. My gp is sympathetic but not prepared to go against endo but would refer me for a second opinion to anywhere I wanted to go but doesn't know of anyone who would be any different! Can anyone suggest anything please??
