Armour, Armour, Armour!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been hypothyroid for 15 years. Synthroid, Levoxyl, and tsh's of 4. to 5.
Medication made a difference, but not wonderful or great. So, I accepted for a long time that, " That was as good as it Gets". Well, it isn't!!!!

The American Association of Endocrinologist's has published a paper saying that the levels that labs and doctors have been working with are WRONG!! The new high for tsh is 3 not 5! T3 and T4............. the only thing that your body uses is T3!!!! T4 is converted to t3. The attitude is that we didn't need t3, we could just take t4 and convert it.
I have been taking Armour for about 8 months and I am here to tell you that life can be good. Armour has t1, t2, t3 and t4. No one ever talks about t1 and t2. I don't know what they do. All I know is that I want everyting replaced that my body is not producing.

The big problem is that the medical proffession doesn't know what they are doing. So you have to. Read, read read read!!!!

All the synthetics are only t4, that is why the results are not good.

There is hope, try Armour!!!!
