Advice please, l have Hashimoto for many years have slowly changed over to Thyroid S fro Levothyroxine , l finally reached 1 1/2 grains
and the change has been quite remarkable had my bloods done Vit d is medicated and cortisone bloods ferriten ect were all checked and good before l changed over .
My results are
FreeThyroxine 10.9 the range is 12.00-22.00
Free t3 4.86
The comment was Freet4 was a little low but okay as free t3 was withing range
Do l need to increase slightly by 1/4 grain to up Free t4
Any advice would be welcomed thankyou
No, you need to increase NDT to up the FT3. It's probably still a bit low, although you haven't given the range...
range is (3.10-6-80 ) free t3 4.86
Will increase by 1/4,grain and check pulse ,many thanks for your help
So, not quite mid-range. That's too low.
Will take the 11/2 as usual first thing 6 am and take 1/4 late afternoon on empty stomach then after week take all together first thing find this works for me as l increase then don’t get that rush feeling even though
pulse and bp are good will wait another 4 weeks and have bloods done again thankyou
Hi Greygoose l have increased by 1/4 grain mid afternoon ,heart rate is faster up to 70 ,proir resting was 60/65 havent got tremors but very aware of heart beats ( hope that doent seem strange )
Bp is xcellant 114/71 should l alternate days for 1/4 increase until system gets used to increase ,would appreciate your help ,thankyou
No, you can't alternate doses with NDT, because it contains T3. The body needs a steady, continuous dose of T3.
I will perservere and see if ths ( can only describe as my heart beat jumping around settles down ,my body has been limping along for years on very poor converserion ,thankyou this is a learning curve for me and the benitit in alertness and energy l dont want to go back to feeling awful
It's always a learning curve for everyone. There's always something new to learn.
