Fellow Hashimotos patient, diagnosed three years ago and was always on synthroid. 100mcg, stupid NHS would never test my free ts so don't know what they looked like but my tsh was down to 1.25. Was still feeling really rubbish on this medicine and decided beginning od December to switch to naturethyroid, started gradually and got to 2 grains and had my bloods tested after 4 weeks - feel AWFUL. I'm so confused about my results because my free ts are not optimal, my tsh has plummeted and I have both hyper and hypo symptoms now. Feel like my heart is about to jump out my chest and shaking hands but I've also got low temp, dry skin, swelling, puffy eyes and joint pain. These are my test results (I didn't take my ndt for 24 hours before test and I stopped my synthroid a few weeks before starting the ndt)
T4 total 71.9 (range 64.5-142)
Free T4 13.88 (range 12-22)
Free T3 5.82 (range 3.1-6.8)
Anti tpo 239.4 (range <34)
Do I need to decrease my dose? I was always on 50 of Synthroid and only needed an increase to 100 because I was pregnant and a few months after giving birth was decreused back to 50 then became major hypo and put back to 100 where my tsh settled to 1.25.
What should I do??? One person on another forum told me I need an increase?
Doctor will have no clue since agreed to prescribe it UT doesn't know much about it,
Thank you so much,
