I did not go back to him as I found him to be unsympathetic and obviously a number cruncher. I have tried homeopathy, acupuncture and kelp in the last few months.
Thyroid USP: 60 mg. Note: Because of the difficulty in measuring actual hormonal content of thyroglobulin and Thyroid USP, the measurable amounts of levothyroxine and liothyronine in these preparations may be less than the clinical equivalent.
I really don't want to go back on Thyroxine, I certainly improved when I first started taking the drug, however later on I went down hill even though I was taking 175 regularly.

Carcinoma, thyroid (prophylaxis and treatment) 1 Thyroid hormones are indicated in the treatment of thyrotropin-dependent thyroid gland carcinoma 13. Some clinicians believe that prophylactic administration of thyroid hormones after neck irradiation will prevent development of thyroid gland carcinoma.
I smugly told her that my periods were now regular every 28 days, although they weren't before Thyroxine, (oops spoke to soon). I am having bloods done tomorrow, so will see if the positive thinking and alternative therapies have worked.

Liothyronine: T 3 (triiodothyronine). Liotrix, thyroglobulin, and thyroid: T 3 and T 4. Molecular weight Levothyroxine sodium: 798.86 (anhydrous) Liothyronine sodium: 672.96 Equivalent strength (approximate based on clinical response Levothyroxine: 100 mcg (0.1 mg) or less.
Liotrix is no longer considered advantageous because of the natural conversion of T 4 to T 3 in the tissues. Goiter (prophylaxis 1 and treatment)Thyroid hormones are indicated to suppress the growth of some 05 adenomatous goiters, and to prevent the goitrogenic effects of other medications such as lithium, aminosalicylic acid, and some sulfonamide compounds.
The lowest T4 I've ever been, but both results were just within our local labs 'NORMAL ' level (which had been reduced from 11 to 7.5 for T4 probably due to funding and having a huge elderly population).
My symptoms have not gone away totally, but I am holding my own. However, I am worried about what is going on inside! Cholesterol, blood glucose, other hormones? Last week I went to a different GP, (as the diagnosing GP had left the practice a while ago) and she was brilliant.
In general, levothyroxine is the preferred thyroid hormone for use in the treatment of hypothyroidism because of the absence of variability and the ease of monitoring of plasma concentrations; it is the drug of choice in the treatment of congenital hypothyroidism.
However, caution is necessary in interpreting results of thyroid function tests in neonates, because serum T 4 concentrations are transiently elevated and serum T 3 concentrations are transiently low, and the infant pituitary is relatively insensitive to the negative feedback effect of thyroid hormones.
Liothyronine: 25 mcg (0.025 mg). Liotrix Levothyroxine and liothyronine: 60 mcg (0.06 mg) and 15 mcg (0.015 mg or 50 mcg (0.05 mg) and 12.5 mcg (0.0125 mg respectively. Thyroglobulin: 60 mg.
