Interesting study, definitely worth a read. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10341859) Does anyone here have the frame of reference to interpret the dosages used?

Convert mg to mcg - Conversion of Measurement Units (http://www.convertunits.com/from/mg/to/mcg)

Its 1.5mcg/kg so for a 200lb person, it would be 135mcg.

I thought the dose was 660mcg 2x's a day.

1kg=2.2lbs
200lbx2.2=440
1.5mcgx440=660mcg???

This study is looking at excessive doses and there effects, right now it seems 100mcg 3x's a day is the norm. 660mcg 2's a day seems excessive.

This is correct.

This is correct.

Its not. Look, we need to find how much mcg per POUND. so we need to first convert 200lbs into kg.

200lbs = 90.7kg

Now they measured in KILOGRAMS so our weight is compliant with their measurement. They dosed at 1.5mcg PER KG. So we take our weight in KILOGRAMS and multiply it by 1.5.

This equals 136.05mcg. Administered twice daily, thats 272mcg daily.

You girls need to work on your math ;)

LOL... You are correct.. I spun over this one too fast I guess. 90.7 is the correct figure to use. I was going backwards on the conversion.

Agree to disagree!! :winkfinger:. But yes, this time you were right and I was wrong!! haha. I'll blame it on the 2yr old and 1yr old running amuck in the same room as me.
