I have been taking 100mcg of NDT ( made up by a compound pharmacist ) which has no brand name because it is made here in Australia. I have been on this doze now for over 5 or 6 months, with no real improvement except for the odd day here and there. My Dr say's my results are now normal but would like my T3 up a little higher. She has suggested that i increase my doze on week-ends only, by, half a capsule. I have difficulty doing this because its in powder form and never get it completely balanced ? i only have this extra on Sat and Sun, and i do feel a little better but not much.
Does anybody have any theories ?? I am taking all supplements except Iron and B12, as I am apparently at optimum levels according to my Dr, as apparently my B12 is in excess according to test results they have been like this for a long time. She doesn't give any explanation for this excess, or what would be causing it. My iron tests also always come back stating optimum levels but with low saturation ? what this means nobody has ever given me an answer.
I have recently lost my Mom, she died in my arms 5 months ago so this wouldn't help so Dr blames my lack of energy and body aches e.t.c on this and states that i am Burned out through having cared for mom for so long and having dealt with a lot of stress. I accept that to a certain extent, but dont feel what i am experiencing has got anything to do with my grief. I feel 100 years of age some day's with no motivation, ( depression no doubt ) but i feel its because i have no life, and again, because i have no energy. Not sleeping is also adding to my dilema , as some night its only four hours.
Having no quality of life doesn't help, its makes me more depressed. Can anybody help me . Thank you so much for reading this. I have put posts on here quite a few time's and always felt encouragement from all of you so am very grateful .
