Re: So confused about my thyroid... help please!
Sammy echoed my sentiments exactly, though much more eloquently ;-)
I agree that you are probably under-converting storage hormone T4 to active hormone T3. I also think you need to decrease your dose of L-T4 but only based on your FT4, not your suppressed TSH (T3 in Armour will do that, so I don't think it's cause for concern).
At some point, only after you have decreased your levo and got your 6 week labs, you may want to try adding in a very small amount of Armour (12.5-15mg). I'm not sure if you should lower your L-T4 one more time before doing this. Let's see your labs again after 6 weeks. You may have to go back and forth quite a bit before you get it right.
Sometimes, increasing a T3 med can have unpredictable effects on the FT4, even lowering it a bit. Sammy would be better at explaining that one.
