Hi again ,
don't know what i would do without the help of this site and everybody involved with it. After discovering I was not taking, "NDT extract " i have been declining quickly.
Thanks to this site i have discovered that i have been paying top money to a Compound Pharmacy for Thyroxin ???? and in such a small dose that i was getting sicker and sicker. They told me that it was NDT from Porcine. Ripped off. I feel so distressed, and so stupid. What i dont really understand is their reason for lying to me.
The long and short of it is that i went to my GP and asked for an e.c.g and blood tests, as i was concerned with how bad i was feeeling and not sure where in Australia i could get the genuine product. My e.c.g has shown that my heart has become slightly enlarged on the right side with an incomplete bundle branch Block, due to being under medicated for to long a period. My results are as follows for Thyroid Function,
TSH, 12.2 ( normal is between, 01.50 -4.00 )
T4 9.69 ( normal 10.0 -19.0 )
T3 4.2 ( normal 3.5-6.5 ).
Have ordered 100mg of Natural Dessicated Thyroid extract 1grain . Can you please guide me anybody as to whether this is a good dosage to start.
Thank you so much, i am so grateful for your help
