I decided to add T3 to my NDT

I am new, I mean not in hypothyroid world but on this forum. All the usernames I wanted were already occupied so I finished with this silly letters, but never mind. As many here I am self-medicating with NDT for slightly over a year. I take 3.5 grains but I somehow think I need more T3 because I just don't feel completely well. I tried to take more but this didn't help. I know lots of people take T3 with T4 or only T3, but I don't know how many of you are taking combined NDT with T3. Is this a good idea and will it work? I just ordered T3 from Greece so when I start with it should I just add it to my 3.5 grains or should I cut down my NDT. Thanks.

  • Welcome to the forum, yxyzxyz.

    The proportions of T4 and T3 in NDT don't suit everyone so some do add T4 or T3 to NDT. As to whether you should add T3 to 3.5grains we would need to see recent thyroid results, particularly FT3 to be able to advise.

  • Hi clutter could you please advise whether i would benefit from added t3 im taking 3 1/2 grains of ndt but still not in range eith t4. Results are on a previous post. Many thanks. Mary

  • I started NDT last July and raised up to 3 grains but realised is actually felt better on the way up so dropped down in stages to 2 and feel pretty good there. So you really need to do your bloods as you could be over dosing as well
