Hi guys, I posted on here 4mths ago about switching my meds however after I posted and got some feedback on the post. I decided to stay on the t4 t3 combo and see how a reduction in t3 would go after talking to the integrated medicine doctor again about my concerns with the big increase of t4 if I changed to ndt at that time. Fast forward 4 mths and I have successfully lowered my t3 and the results are ok. I am now on 75mcg T4 and 37.5mcg t3 my current bloods are :
23 April 2018
FT3 5.7 ( 3.10 – 6.80
FT4 12.8 (12 – 22)
TSH 0.022 ( 0.27 – 4.20 )
RT3 13 ( 10 – 24 )
I saw him again yesterday and he said he thinks I am now in a better position to do the switch over to Bio Thyroid now ,although he thinks I could need to add a little t3 to it down the line.
He said he wants me to start on 1 grain and see how I feel then according to how I feel possibly add in another 1/2 grain if i am symptomatic. He said to re take bloods in 4/5 weeks but he is more interested in how I am feeling rather than what the bloods are..
I think maybe I should go straight to the 1 and 1/2 grains to start? Do I split the doses or take all together? I did not ask him! He has given my 1/2 ,1 and 2 grain tablets to take home with me.
Thanks for any advice
I did post on my original post but do not think it was seen after all this time
