I was wondering the same thing. I was lucky to get diagnosed because everything was borderline. My TSH at the time of diagnosis was 1.something. I figured I would need a very small amount of Armour, but I now take 2 grains of Armour and 50 mcg. of synthroid. Does this mean my thyroid is shot? It just seems to be alot of medicine to me. Guess we'll never know for sure.....we're all different.
