This was my test results 9 months ago on 2 grains of NDT
TSH 0.58 0.27 - 4.20 IU/L
Free T4 12.96 12 - 22 pmol/L
Free T3 4.81 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L
No problems with B12 or Iron Vit D was very low. Critical. No Antibody problems.
I have taken 10,000 UI of Vitamin D for 6 months and 6,000 UI for the last 3. Need to get that retested.
Most of my symptoms disappeared on 2 grains, except for depression, and joint muscle pain.
I still have those symptoms and now they are deeper seated than just the thyroid , unfortunately, (even though thyroid replacement has helped on both accounts), but seeing specialists in both, so good news there. I suffer from dystonia, which is a dopamine related problem so my depressions come from their as even had MRI scans confirming this.
But the really good news is that all the other symptoms have just gone
Anyhow after 9 months on 3 grains, I got my results back.
TSH L <0.005 0.27 - 4.20 mIU/L
Free T4 13.91 12 - 22 pmol/L
Free T3 6.63 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L
I am obviously on a top end of my dose, and maybe dropping down to 2.5 grains in the future is a good idea.
Because i often have to have blood tests and self medicate on NDT, I am worried by the poor education of doctors (as has happened in the past) even though I know TSH doesn't matter a hoot on NDT, with a TSH of 0.58 on 2 grains maybe this is a better level and wont be taken off and on medication all the time and having to restart again every time i may have to stay in hospital.
I have one doctor who is more open and say could prescribe something like 100mcg of T4 and 20mcg of T3 that would be good, but i maybe being too optimistic there.
I take Thyroid S which is extremely good, but also have taken RLC labs (at 2 grains) in the past which was also good.
I am nearly there thanks for all your good help and support for the last couple of years, and in the latter stages of fine tuning, so any advice would be great.
