topping up but not suppressing thyroid function? Potassium affected?
Would like input~
In working on fine-tuning thyroid replacement, I'm in a bit of a quandry. My question: CAN we, through slow and careful 'tweaking,' get to a T4/Armour dose that will allow us to feel very well, while topping up--but NOT suppressing--remaining thyroid gland function?
'Cause right now, I see a higher TSH when I raise synthroid just a tad. Like 6.25 mcg added in a few times a week. Does this mean that small amount is suppressing my endogenous function?
Hoping to find 'The Dose'~
ps-- Do thyroid hormone levels interfere with Potassium levels? and if so, can someone tell me the pathway, how it occurs? thanks!
