Please can anyone shed any light on my issue? I think I might have to experiment with another NDT if no improvement.
When ordering my latest batch of Thyroid S, I had to order from a different supplier because the one I got the previous two, sold out. For price reasons, I order smaller quantities. The latest batch came in a different pack and stated for research analysis only but also claims it is pure grade. Since taking it (I was on 2 grains which previously worked well), I started to feel fatigued and fuzzy with heavy eyes so I have gradually increased the dose to 2.5 grains but have no change in how I feel. This is really depressing as I had high hopes for Thyroid S and seemed to be doing better than on my originally prescribed Levothyroxine. I am feeling pretty knackered. Now this may also be a menopause thing as my periods have stopped for a few months and I am at the start of the menopausal age (this is what my GP feels is the cause). I am not convinced they are menopausal symptoms apart from the period issue as I feel it's more thyroid type symptoms. I don't know whether I am under medicating or over medicating, or issues because it is a bad batch. I am getting a blood test done on Friday to see if my levels reveal anything although the Locum GP I saw to request the tests stated that blood tests are worthless on T4&T3 combo/NDT but I demanded them anyway. If this is true, how can I know if my levels are at the proper range and how much NDT can you take if I am undermedicated?
I have recently written a previous post on FDA regulated NDT because I have been thinking I might have to switch brands.
Any experienced folk who may be able to shed any light on why I am feeling like this, I'd be really grateful, THANKS!
