Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I had a follow-up appointment with my internist today. When I had my blood drawn on Monday, I had specifically asked them to test for thyroid antibodies, free T3 and free T4, in addition to the TSH. So today I find out that they just didn't. Why not? Because this doctor wouldn't treat with T3 because she thinks T4 is all you need. And what about Armour? Oh NO! That's made from SHEEP! (uh.... riiiiiiiight.) My TSH is still high. She's doubled my Synthroid for now. I told her to give me a copy of my blood test and it was nice knowing her.

On to the next doc....
