This blog post is really relevant to many thyroid patients who are trying to feel healthier by adding T3 medication to their T4 or NDT medication.
It also applies to those who simply begin any thyroid hormone treatment or make an increase in the dosage of it.
Why do so many thyroid patients feel slightly better for a few days or a week after an increase in thyroid medication and then feel just as bad as they did before?
I've been having lots of discussions recently with people who wanted to know how much to increase the circadian dose when taken at one and a half hours before getting up before moving the circadian dose earlier in time. I hope this blog post helps to clarify this.
The adjustment of circadian dose timing and dose size are both necessary.
This is based on the experience that patients have had so far with weaning adrenal steroids when applying the circadian T3 method. These are not recommendations but merely a collection of information that has been gathered by thyroid patients in the process of reducing and stopping the use of adrenal steroids like hydrocortisone and florinef.
There are conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), myalgic encephalopathy (ME) and fibromyalgia for which our current treatments are inadequate. Patients with these conditions often never get a full restoration of health.
