I haven't posted for a while - but hoping someone can help me make a decision on which way to approach my Hypo/Hashi issues.
I am currently on 50mcg (I know, small dose) of Levo. Not sure that I get on with it as I have terrible bouts of brain fog - to the point where I think I have early onset dementia. It's pretty scary.
My energy levels have improved a little during the day, but I haven't any physical strength, bones ache etc. At night time, I am seriously struggling to stay awake beyond 9pm.
So - I went to see the lovely Dr Peatfield last week. He had a look at some test results that I had for my cortisol checks in September. My adrenals are working overtime - at all 4 points of the Saliva test, I was significantly over the scale.
To address this (at the time) I started drinking Holy Basil Tea - but Dr Peatfield thought it unlikely that my adrenals would have recovered much since September and felt I should start on Adrenal Support ((Adrenavive II), to take this for a couple of weeks - followed by a reduction in my Levo to 25mg and start on NDT - low dose.
The objective is to phase out Levo and stay on NDT, possibly with a T3 addition.
What's your experience of switching over? Was it pretty straightforward?
Or would you up your dose of Levo (as no doubt my GP will prescribe)? And see if this improves things?
Would really appreciate hearing your opinion?
