This is so individual, it is hard to comment. It would be so great if we could cookie cut the dosage! Conversion of T4 plays a big part, how much one needs straight T3, etc., etc. I don't recall what this doc's thought process is, but doubt it will be a one dose fits all!
your 3/4 grain of armour is ' about' 70% T4 and 30% T3.
I recently read Dr. B's book and found it fascinating. The one thing I couldn't figure out was how much that 2% equates to. (But then, I never have been a math whiz.) One thing that anyone who still has lingering symptoms will be able to take from his wisdom is that some T3 is vital to alleviate them. If I thought the T3 in my Armour was too much for me, I'd definitely consider this method... The other glitch, though, is finding a doctor who'd agree to help me do it. Changing medical minds... you know how tough that can be.
Don't think this will help, but for what it's worth... your 3/4 grain is equal to 28.5 mcgs T4 plus 6.75 mcgs T3, and the T3 is equal in potency to 4 times it's amount in T4.
Thanks so much. Its just that if their is way to feel even better, is will see what my doc. thinks about it. Its been a total of 3 months of being Armour, and I started out a small dose of 1/4 grain and worked myself up each month to 3/4 grain. Tommorow I get my blood test results (i will post them). I just dont to have to much T3 in me, although I have not had any side long lasting side effects from being on Armour. I read on the boards here that it takes 6-8 weeks for T4 to get abosorbed into your system.
I guess, I will wait till tommorow and see what blood tests reveal!
