B12 H 1409 Consider reducing to >725
Folate H >45.4 10.4-42.4 nmoI/L
I've stopped taking my B12 supplement but sontinue with B Complex, might give it 10 days or so then just take a 1000 maintaing dose.
Was on 100mcg Levo, the changed over to NDT, been Levo free since the start of August and built up to 1.5 grains of NDT, tried a hgher dose but did not sleep well at night, so I guess I'm at my max for now.
I do take 1 dose NDT daily (I know some people split) at night before bed, so I did have a dose before my test the following morning at 10:00hrs.
I also tried taking a quater tablet of T3 (6mcg?) first thing in the morning (Tiromel) but that had no effect at all, so I may try another brand, just to get a kick first thing in the day.
Some symptoms I was getting, headaches, severe constipation, hard skin on knuckles, excessive sweating severe dizzyspells to the point of fainting have either gone or are less severe.
Not lost any weight, still need naps (mainly on my days off) memory problems still.
Still some way off my old energy levels, but understand that this might take some time.
Thanks in advance
