Re: Dosing of Armour Thyroid
Hi, If you are having problem with the Armour, a trial of synthroid might be a good option.
Some people do well on T4 only, and some people cannot convert T4 to T3. Then, they need added T3.
Checking the Ft4 and Ft3 are so very important. Also, did your doctor check your adrenal function? If your adrenals are low, it will cause these palpitations as you mention.
Other good tests are B12, Vitamin D, Ferritin. If these are low, you will have problems coping with the raising of your thyroid hormones.
