I have had Hypothyroidism since 2015. I felt terrible on Levo only and now take 75mcg of Levo and 46.25mcg of Lio.
My last blood results were:
TSH less than 0.01 (Range 0.3-5)
FT4 8.7 (Range 9-21)
FT3 6.8 (Range 3.10-6.8)
I have tried higher doses of Levo with lower doses of Lio but that did not help.
My Endo won't prescribe any more than 40mcg of T3 as my bloods show it is right at the top of the range, so I increased it by 12.5mcg myself, this made no difference so I am dropping back to the 40mcg.
I have been diagnosed with ME but I still sometimes wonder if my thyroid is still contributing to my problems (problems being exhaustion, feeling cold, some pain at times mostly in legs).
So, my last resort where my thyroid is concerned might be to try NDT, and I was wondering if anyone has had a major improvement in symptoms by taking NDT as opposed to Levo and/or Lio?
Thanks for reading
