I have been under the supervision of my endo for the last year and have steadily increased my dosage of Levo to 150mcg.
I queried with him last time I was in the use of NDT and the thought that body was not converting the T4 & still had loads of side effects I was pinning to the Levo.
He said he hadn't an issue but rarely prescribed it & rather use synthetic T4 & T3 (shock). After my last test I had ordered Naturethroid and started taking 1 grain (airing on the side of caution). I can honestly say I felt incredible! All my symptoms subsided & my sugar cravings halved (they were bad)& I was running 5k and felt good!
So after 2 months my results are as follows:
TSH - 2.70 range 0.3 to 4.5
FT4 - 10.2 range 10.6 to 22.7
FT3 - 3.4 range 3.1 to 6.8
So the question is, my endo hasn't sent another appt letter & doubt it will be in the next 9 weeks. Would I be best to take 2 grains? If my levels are on the low side why do I feel so good?
Reason I want to be even better is that my wedding is in 9 weeks, there is a lot going on!
Sorry so long and thank u for reading x
