Hi everyone, I posted on here a while back and found the advice given very useful so thought id give it another shot.
Im a 29 year old male who had a TT around 3 years ago. I spent around 1.5 years on Levothyroxine feeling crappy most of the time and lucky found a doctor who would prescribe NDT. For the most part i feel pretty good and can exercise on a regular basis but still have plenty of low energy days and i know there's room for improvement but im always scared to mess with my meds. After a recent blood test im thinking i might be a bit over medicated and my dr said i should maybe look into lowering my dose a bit (currently on 3 grains split in half am/pm) and wanted to see what people think. Last dose was at 4pm the day before and i had my bloods taken at 9:30 the next morning:
Free T4 - 12.1 pmol/l (range 12 - 22)
Free T3 - 6.3 pmol/l (range 3.1 - 6.8)
Iron - 15.7 umol/L
TIBC - 47 umol/L
Transferrin sat - 33%
Ferritin 119 ug/L
Active B12 - 101 pmol/L
Im starting to feel like a might be a bit over medicated- feeling a bit twitchy, occasional heart palps, but my free T4 is right at the bottom of the range and my T3 is pretty high and i wonder how my T3 is peaking during the day when i take my meds? Im wondering if i should i just try T4 only meds again or maybe i should try reducing NDT substantially and adding T4 or maybe just try and drop my current dose of NDT down to 2.5 grains? I know its really trial and error but its hard making these decisions and would be good to hear what people think.
Thanks for reading and i look forward to hearing your thoughts
