I was only getting a very low dose of Levo on prescription. I have been using solely 2 grains of NDT for the past few months as the Levo appeared to make my joints ache when I last used it at the end of last year
NDT seems to be working ok. TSH now down to 2.2, Free T3 now about 5.7
Free T4 is still well below range at 9 so I thought I would add in 25mcg of Levo to the NDT to try and boost the T4. After 10 days my joints started feeling as if I was 80 yrs old, ruined an activity holiday for me as I could not move properly.
So, I just binned the lot. It is never going to work for me,
Question is, how do I get Free T4 up using just NDT? is seems to affect TSH and T3 positively but appears suppressive to T4.
