I've coma a long way over the last few months, since my post about a moonlit walk. I've come off HC and NAX slowly and for the last 4 days I've begun trying to clear T4 to get rid of my high RT3 (35 in a range of 35!) I'm now on 30 T3 per day split into 5 doses and no levothyroxine. For years I was on 250-300 mcg levothyroxine only so the T3 is nowhere near the equivalent of that, but it feels like overdose. For the last three days, since I gave up the levo, my heart has been banging at 102, 109 and even 114 measured by my Omron BP machine. (Is pulse rate the same as heart rate?)
I've successfully used the T3 CM to get off the NAX and HC and have had some fabulous days, shopping, entertaining and yes, moonlit walks.
My question is, could the high heart rate be overdose of thyroid hormone caused by RT3 clearing, because I've been gradually cutting my levothyroxine over the months from 300 to 100, now to 0? I know some of you have cleared RT3 over 10 to 12 weeks but could it have been clearing gradually on a lowered levo dose over the last 6 weeks?
I know some of you are experts in T3, heart issues and clearing RT3, so perhaps you will have answers?
Many thanks for reading.
