Re: Still trying to understand...
Do you have Hashimoto's? It does make a difference.
In straight pharmokinetics interaction. You may absorb armour differently. 1.5 grains of Armour can act like 111 mcgs of synthroid or 150 mcgs of synthroid. It depends on you and how you take it and how well your body absorbs it. We all react and handle each medication differently.
By your levels I would say you may need to mix and match. My Aunt B1 had to finally optimize herself using 75 mcgs of Synthroid and a grain of Armour. She needed a little T3 and a good dose of T4. You might see if your MD is willing to let you add 25 - 50 mcgs of T4 alone to your Armour. It may be what you need.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
