Hi everyone. I’ll try and be brief.
Currently on NDT, total thyroidectomy, hashimotos. went from 150 T4 to 2 grains NDT.
Couple of weeks was feeling tired in the afternoon so in my infinite wisdom added about 7mcg of T3 taken in the afternoon. Have to say I had a surge of energy. Started to feel a bit wired after 3 days of this so stopped. Following week had a blood test.
Can’t remember the exact figures but T3 was slightly over range T4 was only a little higher than T3 and also slightly under range. Over the last week I’ve started to suffer from slight vertigo energy has dropped and brain not pin sharp. . I’m assuming T3 was high due to the extra T3 I had taken in the afternoon.
My question is should I add T4 to NDT to bring up T4. Increase NDT, add a lower dose of T3 in the afternoon or is the increase energy when on T3 telling me I’m better off going over to T4 and T3.
I don’t want to keep swapping and changing but I do want to be the best I can.
Thanks in advance.
