You could try increasing dose after you've been on 1.5 grains for 2 weeks. I don't take NDT but members have said it can take a few months to successfully transition from T4 and T3.


My Functional Dr recommended monitoring temperature a few times a day using a digital thermometer that reads to 2 decimal places. I was taking 1 g in the morning then 1/2 early evening. I raised every 2 weeks by 1/4 either morn or pm until I reached 1.5 in morn and 1 in evening. My temp is now 36.5 in morn and usually reaches 36.99 in the aft. My resting pulse has gone from 58 to 66 in 8 weeks of raising which feels good. I am holding now for 4 to 6 weeks and will test this week for thyroid levels.
