Tell me again why you are not on it? Why you went off of it.
I went off Cytomel because my (then)
D.0. told me to. He said that Osteoporosis was a concern w/ my TSH low (.05) At the time he took me off Cytomel, he didn't increase my Armour or add T4 to it, so I knew I was going to dump, I DID! Then 2 months later (while ignoring my ferritin of 33) he tells me I can take Cytomel again. I was m a d as &^%$#@
at his lack of explanation & feeling like I was his summer science project. (gained 9 of 12 lbs BACK!)
At the time I asked to increase Armour or add T4 to it. He said NO. My T4's were hanging right at the bottom of the range and I don't feel RIGHT, but he was one of those Dr's who belived " Patients don't feel any different once their T's are IN range "
Honestly, I felt like Armour & Cyt was bandaiding my problem, not FIXING it
. Dr wouldn't listen, so I went elsewhere
6-7 weeks ago I started with a new Osteopathic Endo (Dr#6)
He ran more tests than ANYONE these last 3 years
. He wants TSH at the low end of readable, .2-.3. So he added some Levoxyl to my 2 grains of Armour. I wouldn't be surprised if I get to 88 or so mcg's along with 2 grains of Armour.
Keep you posted
