I switched to 1/2 grain Armour Thyroid on August 9 and then on September 14 switched to 1/2 Nature-throid (because I read It is better).
Today September 30 I got my lab results and they are extremely bad, no wonder I have been feeling so weak and exhausted lately. Nothing can make me get out of bed. Please see image above. (Note: I didn't take NDT on the day of the test, will this have an effect since NDT doesn't stay on the bloodstream for too long? Or does it? I was just following the lab's indications.)
Before NDT, my usual dosage of synthetic levothyroxine was 125mcg and my usual TSH 4. I went down to 0.1 tsh once, when I took a combo of 100 levo + 12.5 cytomel but the anxiety and panic attacks were unbearable plus had heart palpitations.
Question is, why is my TSH so high (80) if I'm taking NDT. Im aware it's not a full dose, just a transition one but first time I got diagnosed I was on 40 of TSH and that was without any treatment. So why isn't the NDT working for me?
What would you recommend? Should I alternate 125 levo one day, 1grain ndt the other?, should I take 125 levo and 1/2grain ndt everyday? what would be safer and most effective taking in consideration my heart? I don't know what to do!
I would much hugely greatly appreciate your advice. Thank you.
