Hi everyone, just wanted to ask for a bit of advice. Most of you know I am taking T4 (75mcg) and T3 (20mg) which has given me TSH 0.01, T4 10 (9 - 21) and T3 3.9 (3.6-6.5) My endo won't let me take anymore because it would be "very dangerous" so as I still battle with tiredness, weight gain, constipation etc I have started taking a little bit of Tiromel in addition to my prescribed meds - 1/4 tablet 6.25mg T3. However, I have got it into my head that I would like to try some NDT so I ordered some Thyro-gold and it has arrived. Looking at STTM website I think that 150mg capsule of thyro-gold may be equivalent to 1 1/4 (1.25) grains of NDT which is think is about 47.5 T4 and 11mg T3. Have I got that about right? or does the website mean 1 x 1/4 grain (0.25) which would be 9.5 T4 and 2.25 T3? Does anyone know? I was thinking of dropping to 50 T4, 20 T3 and 1 thyro-gold capsule based upon it being equal to 1 1/4 grains. Any advice would be appreciated
