I'm currently taking 225mcg of Levo and I'm assuming that my endo thinks I'm in range as far as the TSH says because I haven't had word back from my doctors/endo since my last TFT.
I've tried asking my doctors for my last test results but they say nothing is showing on their system and that my endo must have decided not to keep them in the loop this time.
ATM I'm not happy with my weight situation, I'm around 3 to 4 stone heavier than I was before my thyroid decided to stop working right.
Even through strict dieting and 30 to 40 minutes of jogging on the treadmill most days of the week I still can't lose any weight.
I can only imagine that even though my endo thinks I'm fine because my TSH must be where he wants it, I'm not converting enough or any T4 to T3.
So I'm thinking about reducing my levo and adding in NDT but I'm not completely sure how to go about this.
I imagine my doctor and endo will be against this idea and will not support me so I thought maybe the best course of action would be to try and figure out my levo and NDT so that I'm reducing T4 to the point I can take NDT to put me back to the level of T4 I'm on now but with the added T3?
Has anyone ever done this or is it a crazy idea?
I thought if I could get the dose right then when I go for my next TFT my levels will look ok then I can kind of continue in this way?
Any help or advice on this would be great,
