Hey Lisa!


Seems to me that your TSH is extremely low for a T4 level of 1.08.
Did you have a free T3 test run?

Lisa, some of us have trouble with Armour and others think it is the best thing that ever happened to them. If your doctor will agree great but do be careful.

I will not say anything about the lab results because I still have not figured them out...

Just got my lab results back (rechecked after starting on sythroid) and wanted to see why you guys think.

Free T4 1.08
TSH .809

Doc says he's uping my meds to 112mcg. I would like to be put on Armour Thyroid. Opinions?
