Re: Synthroid and Armour Thyroid
You're not taking enough of something, maybe both.
Your free T4 and free T3 levels both need to be monitored to know how to adjust your dose. It appears your MD has tested your total T4 and not your T3 at all. I need to know the lab range for the T4 to know for certain, but your T4 is probably way too low. Without a free T3 test, it's hard to know if your Armour needs to be increased.
In either event, your TSH is far too high to be optimal for anyone. Your symptoms are almost certainly being caused by your inoptimally treated hypothyroidism.
