Thyroid Medication Conversion Chart (3 Charts + Which to Use)

Download my free thyroid resources here (including hypothyroid symptoms checklist, the complete list of thyroid lab tests + optimal ranges, foods you should avoid if you have thyroid disease, and more):

There are 3 main thyroid conversion charts that you can use. These charts can be helpful when you are trying to switch from one type of thyroid medication to another.

This could include switching from T4 only thyroid medication to other types of thyroid medications such as NDT.

The main problem with most conversion charts is that they heavily favor T4 (over T3) and that they tend to underdose patients.

This results in a situation where patients tend to see an INCREASE in their TSH after they switch medications. And this leads them to falsely believe that the medication doesn’t work (and sometimes doctors will suggest that this is the case).

The truth is that most people would benefit if they only did a more correct conversion!

Even though these conversion charts are more accurate than what most doctors use, they are still not perfect.

Converting between thyroid medications is not an exact science due to how T4 and T3 interact with each person.

In this video, you will find 3 charts to look at including the one that I recommend (the last chart).
