I am just wondering if there is an average dose of T3 only that seems to be optimal for most people or is it really quite individual.
I started T3 only in November and was doing well on it. I slowly worked up to 40 mcg which I have been on for a few weeks. I am starting to feel sluggish, lethargic and finding myself in bed a lot if the time again. I don't feel anything from my dose now- it feels the same as if I don't take anything to be honest.
I am tracking my vitals every day and it has been suggested that these show that I am still hypo but that my adrenals are coping with the dosage.
I might need to raise again but I am really surprised that I seem to have to increase as I did not think that I would need 40mcg never mind even more. ( I'm not sure why I thought this though!) I do remember reading a success story about someone who got their life back on 30mcg.
I guess I just feel nervous about increasing and wondering what dose I might end up on. There's always the worry about if I'm on too much! I don't seem to have any symptoms of RT3 clearance that some people report even though I've been on T3 only since November.
I haven't had any recent blood tests as I've been going on my vitals. Here is a sample of a days vitals:
Time: temp: HR: BP:
9am 36.1 57 108/66
11am 35.6 57 105/70
1pm 36.2 71 112/61
5pm 35.6 68 110/59
19.06 35.3 75 107/73
Also, my digestion has slowed again and I'm finding it difficult to sleep at night again.
Does it look like I'm on the right path? I would appreciate anyone's thoughts.
