I have been diagnosed with Partial peripheral tissue resistance to thyroid hormone and currently take 350 mg of Cytomel. I have been on the gamoot of different medications and after 3 months it seemed they woould lose their effec. The first person to Diagnose me was the wonderful late Dr, John C Lowe who has since passed away. I recently found a fantastic neuro endocrynologyst who pracitces in NY his name is Dr. ALan Jacobs. He has sees patients with partial peripheral tissue resistance to thyroid hormone. You can google him . He now works together with my internists and I take proponolol since my heart does respond from time to time and I get heart palps.
Good luck. I know it is really frustrating to deal with the regular docs since we are so outside the box.View Thread
