I don't necessarily want to annoy the admin staff on here but I can't help but think there's an issue here with advice on NDT dosing. Most of the admin staff are saying 1 grain is equivalent to 100mcg of levo yet all my research has stated its 38mcg. Yes T3 is more potent than T4 but that's it, full stop. It doesn't make T4 more potent it just means it's more effective surely. This is why STTP suggests you start on one grain not a quarter or a half and you don't need to go levo free beforehand just switch. I'm reading post after post of people who are told to go slow who are suffering hypo kick back unnecessarily. If you look at Dr Lowes website he says that the fear of T3 is unfounded nay propoganda. I realise this will make me unpopular but hey isn't it just debate and worth considering. I went slowly and had anxiety and palls so I quickly increased and calm ensued. Discuss.......
