My private Endocrinologist has advised that I should be tried in liquid thyroxine and move away from NDT.
I was on just 75mcg Levothyroxine last year. But had terrible symptoms when I needed to increase my dose. I went over medicated within one month, my cortisol dropped far too low 68 (155-600) and I collapsed a number of times through weakness.
I was put on NDT 60mg daily This helped but still not well enough to have normal life
My Endocrinologist wants to rule of fillers being my issue with Levothyroxine. So I’m trialing liquid thyroxine as of tomorrow.
I haven’t been given instructions on how to transfer. I was thinking I’d slowly add the liquid T4 of 25mcg for say 5 days and keep same NDT dose so I don’t fall off a cliff with the T3. Then on day 6/7 start increasing the liquid T4 and reduce the T3 NDT until I work up to 75 liquid alone over 3 week period
Does this sound sensible please. I have run this through with my GP who said it sounds good but he is not fully conversant with thyroid issues and I can’t get hold of my Endocrinologist.
Many thanks for you much appreciated help.
