After reading lots of information here and a few posts (I can't remember when I last posted), I started NDT with the help of a local consultant, privately. This was back Feb/March time.
I had bloods done in May and my levels came back
TSH 2.62 (0.27-4.20)
t4 9.15 (12.00-22.00) - I was told this was normal for NDT
free t3 4.72 (3.10 - 6.80 )
Consultant wouldn't increase the dose based on these results.
I've recently had results back as follows
TSH 30.61 ( 0.27-4.2)
t4 7.4 (12.0-22.0)
Foolishly I didn't ask for t3 so they are all I have.
I have spoken to secretary and consultant has basically fobbed me off and said carry on on your current dosage if you feel ok (which I don't, not as awful as perhaps these numbers should suggest but I am not great). I have now booked myself back in to see him next week but I'm not holding out much hope.
So a couple of questions - obviously (to me!!) my NDT needs raising, I'm on 1 1/2 grains. I am hoping he will increase the dosage but I'm really not sure on this. He seems to think he has to follow the equivalence charts and that's it...It's also costing me a fortune.
I know it's possible to self source NDT, is anyone able to message me privately with a reliable supplier? If he wont increase my dose (and even if he does, purely due to cost!!) I really need to look into being able to obtain it myself.
I'd be really really grateful for any help/advice and especially any messages on where it's possible to reliably obtain NDT from. Thank you so much.
