Hi, I am on 90 mg Armour and was stable at that amount. I was taking the 90 mg in the morning.
My dr. split my dose and I took it at 6 am- 60 mg then at 1 pm- 30 mg.
After 2 or 3 wks on that schedule, my labs came back:
free T4 0.82 (reference 0.82-1.77) and
TSH 0.761 (reference 0.450 -4.500)
Now my dr. is saying she wants me to take a combination of levothyroxine and Armour because my T4 is too low.
I am resistant to levothyroxine because I do not want to gain weight, lose hair, etc. I am thinking of changing drs. to one who will keep me on Armour only.
Is it possible that taking the Armour in 2 different doses has changed my absorption since I eat before the 1 pm dose? I have already gone back to the 90 mg Armour in the am.
Can anyone help me with this?
