Re: Getting optimized on Armour
Yes, I continued to get increases after TSH became suppressed. It took about 6 1/2 months after I started Armour for the TSH to be flagged low. At that point, I was taking 60 mgs. Both the FTs were well below mid-range, and I still had multiple symptoms. I won increases to 90 mgs, 120 mgs, and 150 mgs. 150 proved to be too much; I felt hyper on that. I went back to 120 and have been on that ever since. My FT4 is about 40% of its range; the FT3 is between 70 and 75%. TSH has never been higher than .02 in the past 3 1/2 years or so. That's fine by my doc, because the FTs aren't excessive.
The nail ridges could be from hormone fluctuation. If so, they might disappear once your levels have stabilized.
