... Hi bee01, Everything I've read has stated that a "typical" dose of thyroid hormone is between 3 - 5 grains. Obviously, everyone is individual in what dose will work for them. But, I can say that prior to taking thyroid meds, my body temp averaged 95.5 degrees. Now at 2.5 grains, I'm at 97.6 degrees. Still a far cry from the normal of 98.6 degrees and definitely still...

... Your labs indicate that the dose increase was needed. On medication aim to get your TSH below 2 and freeTs around midrange. If that is achieved but you still have symptoms some "fine tuning" upwards is needed. ... (40 replies)

... Hi. Sorry this is so long. I just joined this board and I am desperate for answers. I am 53 years old. I have been on various dosages of bioidentical estradiol and progesterone since 2006 to help with, first, perimenopausal problems, now menopausal problems. Until 2009 all seemed to be going well. I was running 5 miles, 3 times a week, lifting weights and feeling the... (2 replies)
... I literally almost died from being treated by an Endo who went only by my TSH readings, which were not even true readings because they were caused by his mismanagement of my thyroid meds. ... (54 replies)
... Are you in UK (or Canada)? If you are those reference ranges on the top side can be for freeTs. The ref. ranges you have below are typical freeT ranges in US (different testing methods are used). I still think you have the freeT results mixed ;) When you switch them they start to make sense and reveal that they truly are on the low side. Now you've only been on... (40 replies)

... Hi Everyone, I'm new here but I've spent so long on my own with my issues that it would be a relief just to know that others might just understand how I feel. I have been suffering with hypothyroid like symptoms for many years but can't seem to get any understanding or help from my GP at all. After searching the internet and looking on sites such as Stop the Thyroid... (13 replies)

... I posted in December with some numbers and a list of symptoms, but the summary is - TSH was 3.22, doctor ran a sleep apnea which was normal, iron was normal, so she said it could be chronic fatigue and prescribed Welbutrin. Which I didn't take. She didn't acknowledge any concerns I brought up other than the fatigue. Went to a new doctor last month. She said something... (4 replies)
