I am currently 35 wks pregnant and on levothyroxine however pretty soon after giving birth I want to go on to NDT. It's important that I am well in order to look after a newborn and a 2yr old as my husband works away 1 month at a time.
I am aware I need to get my ferritin, Folate, vitamins D and cortisol levels checked?? Is this best to get done privately or something my doctor can okay for me? Wasn't planning on telling the doc til I have made the change to NDT. Also do I start of with 1/2 grain for a few weeks and then slowly increase it? Is there anything else I need to be aware of. Any help would be greatfully appreciated as I am still learning! Also are these tests better to get done post pregnancy due to increase in hormones etc would that make them unreliable at this point?
Thank you kindly in advance,
