By the numbers and thyroid checkup: Amour anyone?

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Back to the doctor for labs. All numbers were where they were supposed to be. Total cholesterol was 158! My thyroid cancer numbers were also good. TSH was .05 and T4 was 1.34. Talked to the doctor about pros and cons of synthroid vs amour. Anyone out there switch? The side effects of keeping the TSH suppressed seem to be less with the amour. Some endos seem to not want to recommend it. I see the endo in July. My regular doctor does this mid year check for me so I don't have to travel so far. She says thyroid patients seem to like the amour better than synthroid. Guess I'll wait until July and get all the opinions.

    Numbers sound good. I'm not familiar with the meds, but my theory is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!)
