I just started Nature Throid yesterday with 1/4 grain i.e. 16.25 mg and I'm meant to increase it by 1/4 grain once a week until I have 65mg (4 weeks). Does someone have experience of this kind of dosage? I was told by someone that it's too low. Did your symptoms get worse while increasing the dosage as your own productions got less? Although I read somewhere that with natural thyroid your own production shouldn't get less. So any experiences on starting it?
I had lots of tiredness and get exhausted after any activity. My metabolism is totally stuck. Weight loss impossible and weight gain super easy. Numbness and tingling on skin, dry ears, bad brain fog, dizziness.
TSH 1.75 mlU/l (Range 0.40-4.00)
Free T4 15.39 pmol/l (range 10-21)
TyglAb <15 (range <60)
TPOAb 69 kU/l (range <60)
These had increased and got better, but my functional doctor thinks that my thyroid issues have been for some years and have got on cell level so medication might help. By now the TPOAb should be normal as it's been treated with dairy-free, gluten-free diet.
