Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I know for me I would feel awful with those labs. You CANNOT focus on your tsh. Your free's have to be close to the top for some to feel well. The other big thing to keep in mind is that with hashi's sometimes it does not matter what your labs show you can be very, very sick. Hashi's is causing destruction of your thyroid and that in turn causes inflammation and the inflammation is hard on your entire body..........it fights it and cam make your whole body just plain worn out.

Another issue could be the Armour..............I have to take synthroid and cytomel...........the Arnour did not work fo rme.............that is another option.

You have a couple of possibilities here..................most importantly find a dr who knows about hashi's and obviously your dr is not one of the better ones if he only looks at the tsh! It doesn't matter how low your tsh is if your free t4 is low you can still need an increase!'
