I learned yesterday that Thyro-Gold is actually 2.6 grains per capsule. !! That explains why I got so hyper-thyroid feeling when I got up to 3 caps last spring! I had gone up 1 cap each two weeks thinking they were more like 6 caps = 1 grain or something like that.
That also explains why I went downhill last summer. I can't remember if I stopped taking them over the summer b/c I wasn't noticing any effect (the little improvement I had had I thought was either TG, CT, or just time elapsed since quitting grain & dairy 100%), or if I kept on at 1cap/day. If the latter is the case, STTM says that staying at too low a dose for too long can mean a feedback result where you start feeling worse again. EXactly what happened.
So I was on 2.6 grains till fall, then added NT, building up to now where I'm on 3.5 grains a day. That means I'm taking 6.1 grains a day and still feel very much like I have room to go! Crazy. My thyroid must be toast.
Just saw Lou Holtz do a Catholics Come Home commercial. Cool.
