    Just an interesting comment I found on another site, that Dr. Lupo, MD and thyroid specialist said: “Sythroid starting dose for this situation (in response to a patient post RAI), could be 0.7 mcg/pound (assuming roughly normal weight for height) …unless you are 65 years of age or have heart disease. For a young, healthy patient, a full replacement dose can be used from the beginning.” Yet this is just his method as again of what he follows for his patients as we know one size does not fit all and from my experience on this journey, none of my currrent or past endocrinologists are following one standard; so just an FYI; nothing written in stone yet going by this then I’m very underdosed and I do not have history of or have heart disease…..beach
