Hopefully, this will be the last lab post for awhile. My current medication is 75 mcg of Levoxyl 7x weekly, and 5 mg cytomel, 2 x daily/7 x weekly. I recently requested to try Armour because I am feeling bone pain, and heart stress. Dr. prescribed 60 mg. Armour.
Anyway, here are the lab results (before the Armour, which I have yet to start):
TSH: 0.24 (0.40-4.50)
T4, Free: 0.9 (0.8-1.8)
T3, Free: 3.3 (2.3-4.2)
T3, Total: 82 (76-181)
T3, Reverse: 17 (11-32)
Iron: 86 (40-160)
component D: 37 (30-100)
Vit D, D3,: 64
Calcium: 9.9 (8.6-10.4)
I can see I am on the hyper-side, and feel it, too. Is the 60 mg of Armour a good starting range? And of more importance, will it be an easier medication on my bones? lol.
