I have been on ndt since November and just had my first blood tests. I am up to taking 3 grains per day. Palps have improved alot, hair has stopped falling out in handfuls, fatigue, anxiety and body pain is gone. The only problem I still deal with is my body temp fluctuating from 94.4 thru 98.8. Even though i'm feeling so much better, my numbers seem a bit off. I just need a bit of advice about what I should do from here. My doc wants me back on synthroid, but I just can't do that. I have been symptomatic and sick on it for 8 years. Here is my current levels T4 is 0.99 ng/dl (range 0.71-1.85), T3 is 3.57 pg/mL (range 1.45-3.48) TSH is 0.011 u(iU)/mL (range 0.350-4.940. Doc does not test Reverse T3, and I haven't had my tests done for Vit D and B12, but have been on Rx of 50,000 units D per week and B12 and Iron supplements also. Have not had any vitamin and mineral levels checked yet, but will be soon.
