Diagnosed in April 2013 with Hashimoto's + load of hypo symptoms (cold feet, lethargy, sudden 2.5 stone weight gain, swollen face, outer eyebrows disappeared).
Finally decided in May to trial NDT, as suggested by private functional meds doctor.
First, for comparison, March blood results before NDT:
TSH 1.06 (0.3 - 4.2)
FT4 - 11.9 pmol/L (9 - 23)
FT3 - 3.7 pmol/L (2.5 - 5.7)
TPO - 329 u/mL (0 - 75)
No ferritin or VitD done
Vit B12 640 (160-800)
Folate 14.9 (no range given)
Now, results August 19th after three months on Thai Thiroyd, raising slowly as per STTM advice to get to 2.5 grains taken in one go before bed:
*note: ranges are different*
TSH 0.03 (0.34 - 5.6)
FT4 - 10 pmol/L (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3 - 4.7 pmol/L (3.8 - 6.8)
Ferritin 49 (11 - 336)
B12 472 (180 - 914)
Vita D 74 (>75 optimal)
TPO - not done
After three months, outer third of eyebrows have regrown, feet never cold, facial swelling seems to be reduced, increased energy.
Tried going up to 2.5 grains for three days but got waves of heart flutters so cut back to 2 grains, which seems to be my sweet spot.
Love to hear your views on my numbers. I thought FT3 and FT4 would have been higher after three months on NDT.
Will they stay here or if I keep on the same dose of two grains? Will they rise as body gets consistent level of hormone or do I have to raise to get any increase in levels of FT3 and FT4?
Thanks all for having a look
