There seems to be a bias on this board towards Armour thyroid replacement given it's T3 component. I spoke to my doctor about Armour and Thylomar and his opinion was that only in rare cases do people not convert T4 to T3 which would result in astronomic TSH values because it is the T3 which the pituitary senses. He said given my TSH of 9-13, the range on recent tests, that only a sluggish thyroid, not T3 conversion, is the problem, thus Levoxyl was prescribed. Any opinions on this reasoning by my doc? thanks, Steve
