I have been toying with the idea of NDT or T3 for a while but wanted to give Levo a decent chance first. I have decided to trial an NDT as T3 sourcing is so problematic right now. My FT4-3 conversion could be better even after sorting my nutritional deficiencies plus I need to rule Levo in or out as the root cause of the muscle/joint/ back issues which only developed since starting Levo 16 months ago.. I am leaning towards thiroid-s which I believe has 38mcg T4 and 9mcg T3 per grain.
I am a bit mathematically challenged and cant work out what the rough grain equivilent is to 150mcg levo to make sure I buy enough for a meaningful trial without going overboard if it turns out not to suit. Also what sort of dose should I start at? How long should it take to purge the levo once I switch? I took a guess at 6 weeks as thats how long it takes to assimilate when adding Levo, with a possible further 8 weeks to finish titrating the NDT (every 7 days?) get stable and evaluate improvement or lack.
I could swear I saw a list of NDT with T3 / T4 levels and how to convert a few days ago but I'm damned if I can find it now!! Might have been an admin reply?? on someones post or posibly an old thread. Or I plain imagined it!!
Any advice gratefully received
