Re: Newly diagnosed - Hypo but confused!
The armour will only make you lose excess weight that some people gain before their hypoT gets diagnosed.
Its not like an amphetamine that speeds up your metabolism it just regulates it by replacing the thyroid hormone that your body is unable to make.
taking too much will make you lose weight but you will have other symptoms of hyperT such as rapid heart rate, sweating, anxiety palpatations etc....
This is why it is important to have your bloods tested regularly whilst the dose that works for you is found. The ultimate goal is for you to be symptom free and your blood work showing that you have near as normal T3, T4 and Tsh levels that can be achieved by a hormone replacement.
