Re: Armour Thyroid and diabetes/hypoglycemia
Are you diabetic and if so which type? Do you take insulin or pills?
I take Levothyroxine, which is the equivelent to what you take, I think. What dose do you take?
I am Type I and take insulin. When I first went on the thyroid meds, I did notice a difference. I had a difficult time sleeping. I felt anxious. I don't recall if my blood sugar levels dropped or not. It sounds logical they might.
I will say that after a few months, your body adjusts to the thyroid meds and you don't notice any symptoms anymore. Don't take my word for it, though. I would follow up with your doctor and get their input. Be careful of your blood sugars dropping though. Keep juice or glucose tablets near at all times and let your family, friends and co-workers know what's going on so they can help you if your BS goes too low.
