Looking at your free T3, which is high and your TSH which is quite low, although still within the lab range, it looks like you might be hyper, which would mean you are getting too much Armour.
Your FT4 looks in range, so it could be that you don't need the T4/T3 combo med or at least less of the T3 med.
When I was in a very similar situation regarding FT3 on high side, FT4 on low side, and symptoms. I reduced the Armour and replaced it with Synthroid. My intent was to get a better balance of FT3 to FT4, and alleviate all symptoms. I'm not done with this yet, and have to go back for testing soon. Something to consider, rather than just reducing your Armour.
Thanks gimel -- I knew what I was trying to say...........lol
I agree with gimel....I think maybe switch back to Synthroid as Armour is causing the FT3 to rise too fast, too hard.
The levels show too much Armour.
Possibly even try Cytomel/Synthroid rather than Armour??
also took armour morning of test
felt real bad on syntroid. like i was on speed. edgey. bad, on Armour at least i feel normal. just these symtoms. don't want to go back to syntroid. 4 months on that was enough
Kevin...maybe you have just increased too much, too fast.
Our bodies can only process things slowly and in small steps.
4 months on T4 med alone isnt really long enough...maybe you was on a dose too high and couldve done with cytomel with it?
Persoanlly I just think you are going too fast to find a 'quick' remedy and there is no quick remedy to thyroid issues.
I dont mean this to be nasty and if it has come across as that, I apologise but its not been that long since you had a TT.
Also notied that your testosterone is very low.
That may have something to do with your wellbeing.
doc redused the meds from 180 to 165/ said the testosteronie was low but was taken at noon. which is lowest point of the day. she feels its more than likely normal and also she feels me adrenals are more than likely normal. bady temp was warm bp was high. iron was normal. she thinks i just have to zero in on the right amount of meds,. that im close to it. will retest at 8 am in a few weeks morning cotiusol/testosterone and all thyroid tests. to double check . but in the end she feel its just getting the thyroid level right. was told don't tatke anything this wekend start at new level Monday.
