Hello everyone...after many years of fighting with Levothyroxine....20 months ago I landed with a GP who prescribes.NDT...wonderful !
However...am still struggling..never seem to quite get there.
Afte 20 months on Armour...after a bit of research I asked doctor...and he let me have ..WP thyroid.
One month on and still struggling. No bad effects from the brand...I don't think there's anything wrong...probably everything right about AP...but something isn't right for me.
I had latterly been on Armour two grains....but knowing away is probably stronger I went ont WP at 1.25 grains. I very quickly felt so under,..so raised it tow 1.5 grains..now..one week on and l feel so hyper...can't sleep....jittery etc....not a lot hyper but enough to be uncomfortable. So....tomorrow I go back to 1.25 and try again.
Anyone got any experience of all this..? .I'd love to hear from you...
Am I right that WP is ."stronger " ?
Also....I've long suspected HRT sabotages thyroid. After a total hysterectomy 25 years ago , I am on Oestrogrn only low dose patches.37.5 to be precise. Many times I've tried to reduce, bur always with very bad results. Vaginal dryness ...that's one thing..treatable I know with topical hrt but they all make me feel bad....no idea why...
And just as bad are my dry eyes....they become unbearable and ache and ache.
So, I feel I must stick with my hrt...it doesn't in itself worry me, and indeed two excellent consultants have endorsed it for me to stay on for life, with no serious concerns. Yes.... of course I'd prefer not to be on it.....
But..how much is this responsible for my not seemingly being able to get my thyroid balanced ?
If any lovely readers have any bright thoughts on all this I'd love to hear from you.
I'm 67 and eat very healthily and spend a lot on carefully chosen supplements.
I can't think of anything else !!!!!
