Test results-help pls

Hi All,

I am on NDT and haven't tested for sometime. but just had these done in last two days. I am much better but would say still only 60% as I still cannot do much more than a short bike ride up road and back without exhaustion. Still have certain amount of insomnia.

I have learnt to pace myself over last few yrs but it's v frustration not getting back to normal.

dose is 2 and quarter per day. Havent' been supplementing with anything else lately as thought better get up to date test.

Copy from blue Horizon today:

  • Cat69, thyroid levels are good but there is scope to increase dose as neither FT4 nor FT3 are top of range. I recommend 1/4 dose increases at 4 week intervals as you may be close to your optimal dose and retest 6 weeks after you reach 2.75mg.

    Thyroglobulin antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). Members have found 100% gluten free diet helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and antibodies.

    B12 can be deficient <500 and PA Society recommend 1,000 is optimal. Supplement 1,000mcg methylcobalamin and take a B Complex vitamin to keep the other B vits balanced.

    CRP, ferritin and folate are good.

  • Hi Clutter

    thanks for you advice.... would there be any benefit of adding in some t4 separatly?

    i have tried every now and again just adding in an eight approx of ndt extra but all it does within a day or so is cause more joint pain and general worsening of physical fatigue. So it doesnt seem to agree with me. is this because i am getting too much t3 and just need but more t4?

  • Cat69, possibly. Try adding 12.5-25mcg T4.
