So 7 months ago, after getting my labs done and seeing my FT3 and FT4 were ROCK BOTTOM and no doctor would help me, I decided to take matters into my own hands and started taking an NDT. I started at a low dose and worked my way up to 2 grains a day. I was feeling fantastic for about 3 weeks and then it all started to slowly come down. I eventually got my labs redone and it showed that while my FT3 and FT4 were now in optimal ranges, my RT3 was through the roof. I've read that you don't want your RT3 to be higher than 11.....mine was 25. So I immediately lowered my dosage to 1.5 grains per day, and this worked well for about another week but then I started feeling worse again. I may drop down to just 1 grain per day, but so long as I keep taking a medication that has T4 in it I think my RT3 will always be high. So I'm thinking about dropping the NDT and taking a pure T3 medication. Thoughts? And if I do switch to pure T3, how much should I be taking per day?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
