We received the blood tests back and my thyroid is still really low so my doctor raised my NDT 1/2 grain over the last two weeks (1/4 grain each). I have been on the higher dose for two days now and I started breaking out with cystic acne. It is really painful. My DHEA and Vitamin D were low back in December so I have been taking supplements (5,000 IU Vitamin D, 25mg DHEA) for those and on the last test they came back optimal. Could getting closer to optimal with the NDT be causing me to produce more DHEA and I am now getting too much? Should I lower my DHEA? What might be the side effects if I lower it? I have done some research online and can't find anything on treatment of hypo raising DHEA.....What has been your experience or do you have any information on this?
