The last time I was on here I was advised to up my NDT as not optimal. This I started to increase from 3 grains to 3 & 3/4 but then was told to get my vitamin level up, b12, d, folic acid otherwise the increased NDT would not work so I stopped at 3 3/4. Well I saw my endocrinologist last week for the last time (as I'm stable) and because I had had increased my NDT my blood test showed:
At 3 grains it was
TSH 0.05 0.27-4.20
Free t4. 11.69 12-22
Free t3 4.91 3.1-6.8
At 3 & 3/4 grains
TSH 0.03 0.35-5.0
Free t4 21.3 9-21
Free t3 6.1 3.5-6.5
Now my consultant said in his opinion I should probably be on 3 1\2 grains but I have been told you need to go over active before you can find your optimum dose so I have increased to 4 grains but am a bit concerned at the free t4 over range.
I will take another blood test in June and hopefully my vitamin levels will be up but do you think I should stay on 4 grains until then or increase by 1/4 after 3 weeks? I have been on 4 grains for the last 11 days if it is too much how soon would your body tell you it's too much?
As always very grateful for any help.
