I have recently self-diagnosed under active thyroid after two and half years of symptoms. I started taking Thyroid-s slowly upping the dose by half a grain every two weeks. Feeling wonderful on 2 grains and symptoms all starting to disappear and went up to two and half grains and within a week I had started to develop diarrhoea and horrible stomach cramps! I was taking the NDT on an empty stomach and I already have colitis.
I have come off the NDT until the stomach recovers.
Does anyone know what this reaction is? I have seen that people on synthetic hormone also get these symptoms, and it certainly feels more like an overdose rather than a reaction to fillers.
