Do I need Carbimazole or not?

Posted , 2 users are following.

TSH 0.09

T3 4.8

T4 13.1

1 gp says it’s fine. One referred me to endocrinologist. Found a goitre I can’t see and some nodules. Waiting for a biopsy. Put on Carbimazole 5mg by endo.

a bit puzzled. Do I need it? Feel nauseous and bloated. Could that be side effects of medication?

    Hi Armelle, if these results are UK ones the definitely not!! These are too low for carbimazole! Please however get a second opinion from a medical professional. I take carbimazole when my thyroid levels are too high! Hope this helps? Ask away if not. I too have nodules and Graves x

    I would ask my endo about the need for carbi and those symptoms or side effects. My experience says TSH is too low, T4 is too high, and no idea about the T3 number (don't know the free-T3 range, if it is). So carbi might be needed for hyper symptoms if you suffer. BTW, 5mg is a low dose. Just my 2c.
