Under active thyroid

Hi I was diagnosed in January 2016, I was underactive but been struggling ever since! I also have hashtimotos, this is taken over my life, I have had to leave my full time job to have a 16hour part time! I have 2 children age 5 and 3, recently I started taking NDT on top of various vitamins, but now I have started getting panic attacks and shaking all the time, I am always tired.

I have been back to doctors and been advised to to take anything for 7 days and then go back to Levo, they said my TSH is the lowest it has been and I have a very high heart rate! If anyone has any advice that would be great, I can't afford to have my adrenals checked! I'm at my wits end! Thank you for my rant

Welcome to the forum, Amymick.

Please post your recent thyroid results with the ranges (figures in brackets after results) to help members advise you.

How much Levothyroxine were you prescribed before you switched to NDT, and how much NDT were you taking?


I was on 2 grains of NTD
