Customer Question

my T3 level is 5.2 after a blood test I was hoping to change my Thyoxine to add T3 my GP says that I'm in range, I retired a year ago and had thought that my tiredeness would cease but it hasn't and I spend most of the time feeling very tired and very cold and I never lose weight despite walking and attending exercise classes, in other words nothing seems to hae changed since my diagnosis of hypothyroidism and taking Thyroxine for several years now

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
