New to thyroid meds, Im on a very low 1/4grain of Nature Throid. However, my FT3 is consistently low 2.0 (2.2 - 4.4), and I am considering adding a compounded slow release t3 to the Nature Throid, as I start titrating up in the next few weeks.
I've read that most NDTs, here Nature Throid, have a 4:1 ratio of T4:T3. But if I take more t3, my ratio would be closer to 2:1 (9.5 : 7.25.
Is it reasonable that one might have a higher t3 intake than t4? How do you decide which to raise or lower, when using a combo of t3 and t4, or in my case a combo of NDT and T3?
Thank you so much for your time.
