  • Each tablet contains 38 mcg of T4 and 9 mcg of T3, so you're on 78 mcg + 18 mcg. If you take T3 to have 3x the strength of T4, the 18 mcg is equivalent to 54 mcg and so your 2 grains = 132 mcg T4. If you take T3 to have 4x the strength, then you're on the equivalent of 150 mcg T4.

  • Thankyou for this information very helpful I don't feel very well on it. I was on 175 t4 for years. Last month the GPS dropped this to 125 mgs so I wondered if I shoul drop the thyroid s down to 1 and half grains so how mucj would this be. Sorry getting you to do the work for me but i have the most awful brain fog and feel w

    awful .gp does not know I'm on NDT as is not supportive.

    Thank you for your reply.

  • Well, my brain fog befuddled me to come up with 78 instead of 76 on the first line, above.

    So 2 grains is roughly equivalent to 130 to 148 mcg of T4

    ...and...

    1.5 grains is roughly equivalent to 97.5 to 111 mcg of T4

    Good luck!

  • Oh yeah snap

    cheers

  • Hello kjc1tisdell, which was the initial levo dose. The tinnitus is because you are not on the correct dose.

  • I was on 175mgs levo for 8 years then they dropped it to 150 then 2 weeks ago dropped it again to 125. I think this has something to do with menopause and ftp in estrogen . Because when they put me on get they upped my dose again. But I'm not on hrt now so reducing me down . I am confused but I doesn't seem to matter what I'm on I still get diarrohea.

  • Maybe you should drop your ndt to 1 grain and add some levo(aprox.75mcg)

  • Thanks I will try this its all a game of halves isn't it. I was told by my gp last week that I was just getting old. At 48 I might as well start my sunlife package now. Lol
