So, I've posted before but don't know my way around too well so starting another post now. I am an almost 11 year Thyroid cancer survivor. For the past 10.5 years I have been on various dosages of Synthroid. In August of 2017 I switched to NDT ERFA. My Synthroid dosage prior to the switch was 175mcg daily. I was given 90mg of NDT ERFA daily.
Five weeks after switching from Synthroid to NDT ERFA my labs were as follows:
TSH less than 0.03 (0.20-4.00)
Ft3 5.8 (3.5-6.5)
Ft4 10.1 (9.0-23)
My doctor felt my TSH was too suppressed so they decreased my dose of NDT to 75mg daily from 90 which I had been taking.
My labs three months later were as follows:
I was told my TSH was too high and that I needed to go back up to 90mg daily which I did two months ago.
My latest labs which were drawn two days ago a full 16 hours after my last dose are as follows:
I am convinced I'm underused and need to increase my NDT or add a bit of T4 in the form of Synthroid each day. I was thinking of increasing my NDT by 15mg daily to see if I feel better in 6 weeks time and if my TSH has hopefully gone lower.
Please, can someone give me some advice? Some of my symptoms are as follows:
Extreme fatigue and lack of motivation; facial puffiness, especially the upper eyelids; weight gain, depression, lack of stamina, blurry vision, forgetfulness and brain fog, trouble with word retreival.
Thank you all so much.
