Hi all hope everyone is well on this glorious day? Don't think there will be many of us using our devices today.
How long does it take for T3, NDT form, to leave the body?
•Thyroidectomy 1992 onwards levo treatment.
•Since 2020 attempted a few trials of NDT.
•December 2020 thyroid results on 75mcg levo revealed I was undermedicated and my FT3 was low. (Low FT3 is nothing new)
•Delay is sorting thyroid issue: Got covid end of Dec
•Just before mid February I added small amounts of NDT, 1\2 of 30mcg Efra daily, split dose, adding it to 75mcg levo (combi - dose) with sole intent of raising FT3 level
•Combi -dosed for 2 weeks and 3 days then stopped NDT and carried on with the 75mcg of levo only, in preparation for annual GP blood test.
•Naively, I thought stopping the NDT 13 days prior to GP blood test, would be time enough to allow NDT, and thyroid blood results, of NHS definition, to reach a somewhat normal level. Whoops, GP now reduced my thyroxine. 75mcg/50mcg alternate days.
Can anyone please tell me how long does it take for NDT to fully leave the body? Does NDT store in the body? My reason for asking, is that my FT3 was 5.6. 2.5 - 6.5, (GP result) and for the past week (despite taking levo only)I have been feeling so well and fully functional. It's the best I have ever been since thyroidectomy.
Totally, put my much improved health, down to FT3 that is stored in my body due to short combi-trial. Given time my FT3 is going to drop them it's back too...hypothyroid status. I could start the combi- dose again but GP wants to do another blood test in two months. Wish I could tell my GP that I don't want him to monitor my thyroid health anymore.
It would be really great to receive some feedback on my post.
Sincere thanks in advance
