My last test, done 18 hours after the last NDT dose, showed:
T3 = 7.59 (3.1 - 6.8) *high
T4 = 17.64 (12 - 22)
That was on NDT daily dose of 2 and 3/4 grains split morning and afternoon.
I have since dropped back to 2 grains in the morning because of the high T3 and I still feel OK but not as good as before. Haven't been tested yet for this dosage. While I feel improved, many symptoms remain, eg. constipation, napping at around 5pm, body temp 36C - 36.5C, can't lose the extra 30 pounds I have put on.
So my question is - what to do? I'd like to return to the 2 and 3/4 grain dose, even try going to 3 grains (slowly) but is there a downside to high T3 that I need to worry about? I already have spinal osteoporosis. I've been supplementing all vits and minerals and my levels are now not bad.
