Hi all , had a recent blood test after educing from 4.5.grains thyroid -s to 4.25 grains
I wasn't feeling too bad by the end of the four week period on the reduced dose , but a bit up and down. Previous test showed tsh 0.005 hence the reduction.
Going by these latest results , I have reduced again to 4 grains . It's only been a week , but pulse has reduced a bit , low 60 from upper 60, and had trouble getting out of bed in the morning last couple of days. Really , not sure , but going to give it another week.
What are peoples' opinions ? By those labs was a dose reduction essential given the t3 is only slightly over range and the t4 is ok- maybe a little high for NDT . Should I be concerned about going back up to 4.25 if I feel 4 grains doesn't work.
Just so you know , I am self medicating- doctor thinks I'm on Levo
All thoughts appreciated.
