Like others I have just discovered that naturethroid has been out of production, and that there is now a back log for orders. I will be e-mailing my supplier later for an estimation of how long it will take for an order to go through.
Meanwhile I am looking into what other options I have. I have made an appointment with my GP for later this morning in the vain hope that she might prescribe me T3 as a one off, going to stress how many thousands of pounds Ive saved them so far by buying my own lol
I currently take 1.5gr naturethroid, but I'm having difficulty reverse converting it so I know what to ask for.
Am I right in thinking that T3 in this country is 25mcg tablets, and if so how much T4 would I need to make up the difference for 1 x 25mcg T3 to 1.5 gr NDT.
I looked at conversion charts but they cant be right. My ndt is currently 13.5 T3/57 T4, but according to a conversion chart if I take 25mcg of T3 then I need 50 mcg of T4, which just can't be right.
Would I be better trying to get T3 only? Very doubtful on this outcome but no harm in asking.
As a last resort I'm going to ask for eltroxin liquid, however Ive seen the price of that as well so not going to hold my breath.
My other option is to buy T3, either to take on its own or with the eltroxin (if I get it), but I still need info on how much to take.
Any help appreciated, ASAP as Im going to docs in just over an hour.
thanks in advance
