I’ve been on t3 only 50mcg per day and using Paul Robinson’s circadian method. I feel great. I have more energy, I’m always toasty warm with my afternoon temps at 37°c, my mood has improved... life is good!!
My recent blood work and cortisol is:
However, I recently discussed everything with my doctor who now wants to drop the t3 (50mcg per day) only and transition me back onto NDT 1 grain per day (which I was on beforehand but didn’t do well on and was more hypo while taking NDT ).
I’m really worried that going back on NDT is going to make me feel worse again. The doctor’s reason for putting me back on NDT is to see if my own thyroid will work properly again and if not even talked about putting me on t4 only!!!
Should I trust my doctor and do what she says or should I take my health into my own hands and stay on t3 only? If I do stay on t3 only, will that stop my own thyroid from ever working again?
Any input would be gratefully received.
