Haven't been around as much lately because I am actually having a life! and spending less time on the computer.
It is over 4 years since I became ill (my long story is on here in stages) and I seem to have improved a little more in these past couple of months. I believe that this is down to taking 1 grain of naturethroid as well as my 200mcgs of purified levothyroxine.
I tried adding a little T3 (prescribed by Endo and GP) but it just doesn't suit me at all.
Naturthroid only contains 9mcgs of T3 in 1 grain and this is obviously just what I needed. I am due to speak to my Endo next week.
I said to hubbie today "what do you think the chances are of anyone convincing me to reduce my thyroid meds?" huhh not likely he said.
I am fully expecting to be told to reduce my thyroid medication after my last blood test. The last time I reduced them I grounded to a halt within 4 days!
I am going away for the weekend and as long as I take it steady I should be fine, I plan my days very carefully so that I don't overdo it and cope well.
Obviously I would still like to be back to my old self, hopefully this will happen eventually.
We are all different, getting my TSH under 1 and my Free T4 is just above the range seemed to be key for me.
