Hi ,I have hashimotos and am on 125mg levothyroxine,saw my specialist yesterday and persuaded him to give me cytomol aswell,as my t3 is 3.5 which I think is low,he was reluctant to do this as he said I will need to be monitored more,I've had terrible brain fog ,dizziness,lightheaded so I'm hoping this there any hashimotos sufferers doing well on levo and cytomol ,would appreciate any advice thanks

Personally, (I am not medically qualified) I think you will feel so much better with t3 added. I don't have hashis but hypo and it made an enormous difference when I added T3. Is he reducing your levo slightly to add the T3?

Just for your reassurance this is a link re T3. Most Endos/GP's think it is dangerous in some way, i.e. to your heart or bones but that isn't the case. In fact, it calmed my heart and everything else caused by levo.


I found his reason for not wanting to prescribe - that someone would have to pay attention to you - amusing. They must feel that if they give you nothing but t4 they can just send you off on your own, job done, no need to 'monitor'. But maybe I've got the wrong end of the stick and he does intend to spend a lot of time keeping an eye on you.

I've just been prescribed t3 too and I look forward to hearing how you get on with it.
