I just got my bloods back from GP, after going to her with anxiety/stress/weight loss (I lost both parents in the last 12 months and have a 6 month old who wont sleep (I continue to breastfeed)!).
GP is really great - she brought me in for an appointment to discuss results as she knows I am on NDT. She explained that based on my results (t4- 27.8, tsh 0.01, t3 18.8) she should be prescribing something to lower my levels, but will work with me to try and get things stabilised.
So my question is... what's the best way to reduce NDT?? I am currently on 3 grains, twice a day... I know this seems a lot, but during pregnancy and after giving birth I couldn't get things regulated, all my symptoms had returned (I was taking 4 grains sublingually and happily before pregnancy) so I upped dose to 6 a day (not taking sublingually anymore).
I had assumed that physical feelings of stress were as a result of grief and no sleep... turns out I may have been putting myself under more physical strain by over medicating. I'm afraid to adjust the amount now, before getting some advice!
Thanks in advance!
