I went from 50mcg levothyroxine and taking 3 tablets Nutri Thyroid a day late October to one grain Thiroyd from Thailand. Was feeling good, I learnt to multi dose which improved symptoms. I don't do a regular dose, just when I start to feel a bit low and then I take quarter grain. I have been increasing up to 1.25 grains per day but still started to feel hypo. I have recently increased to 1.5 grains and sleep better if I have a small amount before and during the night. But my symptoms are returning, weight gain 1 stone in a few months, constipation, hoarse voice, restless at night, a few aches and pains, skin and muscles of someone 20 years older than me, hair falling out. I did have thyroid Peroxidase AB at 195.8 (0-35) in May 2015, the doctor wont do any other tests. Test results in December 2015 after 6 weeks on one grain Thiroyd were T4 11.2 (12-22), TSH 0.04 (0.3-4.2), T3 5.4 (3.1-6.8) and ferritin 63 (12-230). Test results in Jan 2015 whilst on 50mcg levo and 3 tablets Nutri Thyroid were T4 14.4, TSH 1.73, T3 5.3 and ferritin 54.
I went for a walk yesterday and a few months ago I could walk up this hill a lot faster, yesterday I was out of breath. I have been having a lot of stress recently.
I do take B-100, vit D, K2, selenium, magnesium, zinc, Spatone iron, vit E, omega 369. I take the gellatin powder and D-Ribose. I am 58 years old.
I take the NDT first thing in the morning quarter grain with water normally about 6am, then a quarter grain mid morning, another early aft, another late aft, another evening and a small piece just before bed and if I wake during the night.
When I first went onto one grain, all in one go along with 3 Nutri Thyroid I did get a couple of short feelings of angina, after that I multi dosed and dropped the Nutri Thyroid.
Any ideas would be appreciated, I don't want my weight creeping back up again, I had lost 3 stone but gained one stone. I do have cravings for sweets, carbs in the evening, I just want to eat! I had been very good and didn't have this urge before.
