Low T4 and mid-range T3 is normal on Armour. BUT, the same is also true for people who are under-treated on any thyroid med. Your body is trying to converta s much T4 to the more active T3 as possible to keep you going.
Getting your TSH regulated is no harder on Armour than on any other thyroid med. The Hypothalamus and Pituitary still respond in the same way to the thyroid hormones that the med provides.
You might try to get another opinion or ask him to humor you. Tell him it is your body and that you will take responsibility for the risk if hwe will work with you to get TSH to 1 NOT 2, but 1.
