I am currently taking two grains a day of NDT (thyroid S) and have Hashimotos. I’m self medicating as my endo saw fit to keep me on carbimazole with a TSH of 36 and thyroid ultrasound and antibodies confirming a Hashi diagnosis.
I am supplementing Vit D, K2, Iron, Folate and Magnesium as I am low in range on all levels.
I have now had my latest results and my TSH is low (not worrying due to everything I have read on here - thank you) and my FT3 is 5.53 (range 3.1-6.8). My T4 and FT4 are showing as under range. Am I right in thinking that I should be increasing my dose of NDT slightly to pull my T4 and FT4 up in to range (currently 63.8 range 66-181 and 11.8 range 12-23).
Whilst I’m feeling better than I did, I’m still suffering with mood swings, very dry skin, weak nails and generally tired.
Or alternatively should I be concentrating on upping my supplements to high in range or doing both?
Would really appreciate your thoughts....
