I have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and am seeking an effective treatment. I recommended to my endocrinologist to put me on T3 medication as well as the T4 medication I am already on. But she said my T3 levels looked perfect (she did not check reverse T3). Could I still benefit from a T3 medication if my T3 levels are in the top half of the normal range? I don't think I am feeling as well as I could, but my endo only trusts the numbers and when I tell her I still have symptoms she said that they must be unrelated, in fact she told my my hypothyroidism symptoms never had anything to do with my hypothyroidism because my levels were never too far from normal range (but still abnormal). I am trying to find another opinion so I can decide if it's time to switch endocrinologists.
