Post Newbie with Question

I don't know if anybody remeber's me but I posted about switching to Armour. Well I went to the doctor and he doesn't want to switch me because my level's are so good right now and he doesn't want to mess that up. I do understand that but I have never felt good on the Levothroid. When I was put on this I have had alot of intential problems and I still get really tired. So, My question is do I go to somebody that will switch my meds to Armour. The docotor is going to refer my to a endo to talk to him about my concerns. I'm just looking for somebody in the same boat

Thanks
KCGAL

Many people feel better taking natural thyroid replacement like Armour. If your dr won't prescribe it, go to a different dr. Depending on mindset of drs in your area, you may even have to go to a naturopath who tend to favor Armour. Check out the Armour website, or call them directly; they have a list of drs that will prescribe their med.

I hate when docs do that, just because your "numbers" look good they figure you should feel good. Find a doc who will switch you and help YOU to feel better and not just treat your lab sheet.

As said your numbers mean nothing. The tests should only be used as a guide, along with symptoms, but unfortunately most docs use the tests as set in stone gospel, which is bad bad bad.

Go find another doc that will help you with your symptoms. The tests are skewed and often leave people hypothyroid - yes doctors willfully leave you to suffer...

The key is to find one that doesn't do that.
