I have a question about starting Naturethroid. Iíve been on Unithroid and Cytomel for 5 years and been feeling almost normal but still had problems with sugar cravings and my right arm would go to sleep during the night and low energy most days but blamed that on sugar.
Also my complexion has been less than perfect ever since Iíve been diagnosed with Hashimotos but I also blame that on sugar. Iíd take the dose just once a day .75mcg of Unithroid and .5mcg of Cytomel. Iíve just started Naturethroid two days ago at 1 grain taken Ĺ of it twice a day. I plan to increase it slowly to avoid shocking my system.
Anyway, Iíve read so many post about how wonderful people felt once they switched from T4 only to Armour. Has anyone been on the synthetic T4 and T3 combination for years and felt ok and then switched to a natural thyroid and felt wonderful? Also, if Iíve been taking the T4/T3 combination for years, do I still need to start low with Naturethroid and work up? Will I see a difference from synthetic T4/T3 to natural desiccated?
