I've been taking NDT (Thyroid-S) now for 3 years and have done pretty well on it. I have followed the guidelines from STTM regarding supplementing my low iron, D3 and B12 in that time, although for around the past 6 months I've cut back a bit on iron and D3 because of the cost.
According to my results I am now pooling FT3, so I guess I need to increase the Iron and D3 again.
I am considering changing over to Levothyroxine, which I was on for 9 months when first diagnosed, I was stuck at 50mgs and felt sick and in desperation changed to the NDT but it's very hard to obtain, expensive and I self medicate because no GP in Bulgaria (where I live) will prescribe NDT or support it, I'm very lucky though that I can order my own blood tests. I have a couple of questions about changing over though.
1. If I was to change over, how would I start dosing. I'm currently on 2 grains daily of NDT which I believe equates 200mg of Levo-t so would I swap straight over to that.
2. The problems with iron and D3, adrenals etc, are they the same issues with Levo-t that you need to watch for?
I've attached my results which were done yesterday if it helps
Thanks in advance
*Edit - I actually changed from Thyroid-S to T.R. NDT 2 months ago, and I thought that the change in thyroid meds was the reason why I feel bad?
