Does anyone know where I can get some good advice/information about taking NDT after coming off synthetic thyroxine please?
I have been taking synthetic T4 + T3 for the last ten years, having been diagnosed with Hashimoto's fifteen years ago. T4 alone didn't work well for me, the dose kept rising, but I still felt awful.
I was also taking Omeprazole (I have acid reflux and other digestive issues, including constipation) for as long, but gave this up last year, because I am now not absorbing nutrients properly. I had a course of 6 x B12 injections two months ago and am taking vitamin D, calcium, magnesium, enzymes and probiotics.
Two weeks ago, I started on NDT, 1/2 grain Nature-throid (on private prescription from my GP after I asked for it) but I don't have any instructions about taking it. The pharmacist couldn't help. I'm feeling marginally better, although tired (nothing new so I wonder if I should just stay on this dose until my next blood test, which I expect will be next month when I see my GP?
I was on 100 mcg T4 and 20 mcg T3. I've had a look on the internet, so I know my current dose is low compared to that.
Thank you for reading this.
