Re: Lab results and dosage adjustment
Grandma.... When we take a T3 med, like Armour or Cytomel, TSH is expected to be suppressed. My own TSH hasn't been higher than .02 in the past 8 years. But my free T4 and free T3 are well within range, and I have no hyper symptoms at all. My doctor understands what Armour does to TSH and disregards it altogether. Your doctor ought to know that; maybe you'll have to educate him. If he's a cooperative sort, he'll investigate for himself and correct his error. But if he isn't, you may have to find a different doctor in order to get your dose restored. Why put yourself through misery just because your MD is a dolt?
