She has been taking 37.5 mcg of Levothyroxine 3 days a week and on alternating days 25 mcg Levothyroxine with 1/4 grain (16.5 mcg) of nature throid 4 days a week. She is transitioning to 1/2 grain of WP Thyroid daily. Her Dr said a consistent daily dose is preferable and I am hoping it will bring down her antibodies which are still high. I don't have instructions on how to transition the medication, should I just do it cold turkey or taper down the Levothyroxine since it will stay in her blood stream for a week and bring up the WP Thyroid slowly? Does anyone else have children being treated with natural hormone and any suggestions for lowering antibodies? I read the Isabel Wetz (spelling?) book recommended to me by a generous person through this web site, and several others including Alan Christianson's and Healing Hashimoto's. Other titles are appreciated. She takes 100 mcg selenium and probiotics and has many foods she avoids including gluten and soy. Thanks for all help!!! Much appreciated.
