    any ideas what would be a good starting dose of Natural Desiccated Thyroid for people who's thyroid was destroyed by doctors? That particular person is taking 300 mcg of synthetic T4?

    Broda Barnes started people on 1 grain or 1/2 a grain. I wouldn't start on more T3 than than is in that (there's about 8mcg T3 in 1 grain). I don't think it matters whether you have a thyroid or not. It's the T3 that takes some adjustment.

    The person could keep their T4 where it is now, and just slowly build up the T3. I wouldn't increase a dose more often than every 2 months.

    They may find they can actually reduce T4 later. Ray said people feel best on a ratio between 4:1 and 2:1.
