So 5 weeks in on T3 only and I have to say dont feel any different yet.
Was on 100mcg levo and switched to NDT, worked up to 3 grains but bloods in Jan 16 showed high T3 and high reverse T3
T3 3.1 – 6.8 (7.27)
Reverse T3 10-24 (33.0)
Dropped down to 2 and a quarter grains NDT, then 1 and half with 12mcg T3. I decided to give the T3 only a go as I thought this might be the best way forward.
Been on 1 and quarter tabs of T3 (31mcg ish) but now feeling a bit over during the night so have dropped down to 1 x 25mcg tab split in 2 during the day.
Observations have been that I dont feel so stressed when I'm driving and the white flaky skin on my knuckles seems to be disappearing. No weight loss and still getting pains in my hips and large thigh muscles.
I'll see it out for the 12 weeks, but I feel like I'm missing out on T4 so not sure whether or not to go back on levo+T4 combo or back on the NDT.
