Happy Friday folks, hope you can offer your wisdom....give me good news and success stories...
I started 1 grain of Nature-Throid last week after 6mths on levothyroxine. Was on 50mcg of levo, should have been on 75mcg but just couldn’t tolerate it. I know it’s a tiny amount but I had lots of problems on it, so I made an informed decision to switch to NDT.
After 7 days on Nature-Throid, the awful muscle pains and palpitations have improved. I’ve had a day where the brain fog lifted and felt like me again 🙂 I am feeling hopeful and actually quite empowered to be going DIY with this 👊🏻 BUT I have lost loads more hair in the last week ☹️ My ferritin/iron/vit D/B12 are all good.
Also, the levo/hypo coldness is back.
Do I need to increase my NDT now? It’s only been a week. I was planning to increase it by half a grain in a couple of weeks, do I hold out for longer? Have ordered a testing kit from Medichecks so should I wait until I’ve done those?
Is the hair loss thing normal after starting NDT? I know I need to get optimal and this could take months.
