My GP has finally agreed to switch me to NDT. I have been taking Synthroid for 16 years. But only in the last 3-4 years have not been feeling well. After researching and reading about Reverse T3, I went and had my own blood testing done to see what my Reverse T3 was at. Here are my results:
Reverse T3 18 (8-25} ng/dL
Free T3 2.5 (2.3-4.2) pg/mL
Free T4 1.0 (0.8-1.8) ng/dL
I just started taking the NDT ( NP Thyroid) today 30 mg. I was previously on 112 mcg Synthroid. The GP is going to retest in 4 weeks. From what I have been reading seems kinda low starting dose.
Is 30 mg too low to start off with after being on 112 mcg Synthroid? Or is this normal switching from synthetic to NDT to start low.
