50 mcgs of levothyroxine contains 50 mcgs of T4 and no T3.

30 mgs of Armour contains 19 mcgs of T4 and 4.5 mcgs of T3.

Re: Please Help! Question About Percentages.?

Thank you!

I am trying to figure out what I should be taking since my dr can't see me until the end of May!!! I THINK I need more T4 med based on my last labs. But I don't want to give up the T3 completley either.

Awhile ago I was on just the levo at 112mcg's and my T4 level was still low. The only time my T4 level has actually gone up some is when I was taking the Armour. But then on the Armour I end up getting to much T3. Ugg.. It is a frustrating game of cat & mouse it seems. lol

So I am figuring even though I still have hypo symptoms at the levels I am taking I am just going to stay there until I can see my endo in May and get some new labs and re adjust the meds then.

For now I will take

75mcg's levo with 30mg armour or 15mg armour depending on how I feel.... I am also thinking of upping the levo dose to 100mcg's for now and just doing the 15mg's Armour....????
