Re: So confused about my thyroid... help please!

Thank you ALL so much! I can't tell you how helpful your posts are.

I really don't want to medicate myself, but I'm in the position right now that I kinda have to. My PA just isn't up on thyroid issues. I'm also a type 2 diabetic and she's great with that, so that's why I go to her. She's aware of what dosages I'm taking and her main concern was taking Armour with Levo. She wanted to switch me to Cytomel, but I'm afraid to do that since I'm feeling good. I've been on this dosage for more than 3 months and have felt better than I have in years.

I will ask her to lower my dosage of the Levothyroxine for now and stay on the Armour. I will go back for labs in 6 weeks and see what they are then.

Thank you again for your time and wisdom.
