Would appreciate some feedback/advice about my most recent thyroid bloods.
* Im self medicating my thyroid meds and am also on TRT.... Though I now have an endo in the US who I’m working with.
11th of Feb I switched from 31.55 of T3 to NDT (Thyroid-S) as my new endo thought it would be a better option. From 11th Feb - 28th April slowly increased dose up to where I am now which is 3 grains. I’ve been monitoring my blood pressure and pulse and BP is good and pulse slightly higher than pre thyroid meds. 120 over 72 and pulse of 76. (Pre thyroid meds pulse was 60-70)
Symptoms - Not been feeling too bad. Apart from worsening join pain and slightly shaking fingers.
Last two set of bloods...
5th March (after being on T3 for about 7 weeks)
TSH: 1.59 (0.27-4.2) FT4: 12.4 (12-22) FT3: 4.77 (3.1-6.8)
2nd May (after being on NDT for 11 weeks)
TSH: 0.005 (0.27-4.2) FT4: 20.05 (12-22) FT3: 12.7 (3.1-6.8)
So looks like I’m over medicated! Will be speaking to my endo about these results but would really appreciate some feedback here too 🙂
Was wondering how much to lower my dose?
