I was experimenting with thyroid-s last half year. All blood tests have been done after about 12 hours.
Taking 1 grain (half grain in morning, half grain at night) puts me into:
TSH 0.01 mE/L (ref 0.35-4.94)
T3 4.53 pmol/L (ref. 2.6-5.7)
T4 12.6 pmol/L (ref 9-19)
Taking 1 grain and quarter puts me into:
T3 5.5 pmol/L (ref. 2.6-5.7)
Somebody may think that 1,25 is my best dosage, but my sleep and mood is better on 1 grain than 1,25. Also libido is better on 1 grain, probably because 1,25 raises SHBG even more.
Without NDT my T3 is about the same as with 1 grain (after TSH falls down), but I think I feel a bit better on NDT even with the same level as I had it without. I am wondering is T3 4.53 when on NDT the same as T3 4.53 natural level? What is actual level first hours after taking NDT, is any higher than after 12 hours? Taking ONLY half grain every 12 hours, do you think that my levels may be at first hours 5.5 comparing to 4.53 after 12 hours?
