I have been taking NDT (Armour Thyroid) for 6 weeks. Although my levels improved, I have seen a slight increase in antibodies (Thyroid Pharmacist Izabella Wentz suggests this might happen). My symptoms remain the same (weight gain/low pulse/low body temp). Given the advice of Izabella Wentz coupled with the fact, I can no longer afford the private doctor who prescribes the NDT, I have decided to do a trial of Levothyroxine + T3. I am currently on 1.75 grains of NDT.
What should be my starting dose of Levo + T3?
My results on NDT: TSH 1.39 / T3 4.28 / T4 13.4 / TG Antibodies 76 / TP Antibodies 355
Previous on Levo (75mg): TSH 5.77 / T3 3.67 / T4 15.7 / TG Antibodies 83 / TP Antibodies 337
