Morning - my latest test results

Morning - my latest test results

Hi, I've been seeing Dr C who put me onto NAX, Thyro Complex (was 3 in the morning but made me feel sick so dropped to 2), Nutri Thyroid (6 raised to 7 split between morning and afternoon), Nutri T Convert and more recently 5-HTP.

Apart from other supplements incl D3, K2 and B12 self injections this is all I take, not having been diagnosed with thyroid issues. Still have symptoms of very tired, breathlessness on exertion etc but feel better than before.

I'm confused as to what is best to do now as know NT is to support gland, is it best to stop now, try NDT or carry on......

Will be having a conversation with the DR later.

Thanks for any advice.

J

  • Bluedragon, TSH is below range because FT3 and FT4 are good. Thyroid antibodies are positive for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's) which causes 90% of hypothyroidism.

    Thyro Complex, NutriThyroid and NutriT Convert must be costing a bomb. It may be worth checking out whether NDT is more affordable and more effective.

  • Absolutely costing me a fortune! Just had to order another lot as Dr doesn't want to make a decision what to do next until urine test results come back - they've been held up. Supplements not from him I hasten to add cos that's even more money. Sigh. I don't even feel that much better for all the money I've spent.

    At least he's not going to charge me for consult when they do. He asked me to think about what I wanted🙄😩

  • Bluedragon, perhaps you could discuss switching to NDT. Because the supplements you are using don't state how much active hormone they contain it's unlikely anyone will be able to guide you re dosing and it will be necessary to start at a relatively low dose and increase dose gradually with thyroid blood tests every couple of months to check levels until you are on a stable dose.
