Had my appointment with Dr S yesterday and we have decided that I will start Armour along with Levo now to see if that helps me.
Dr S wants me to start by adding 1/2 grain armour to my 175mcg daily for 3 weeks then to up the armour to 1 grain daily for 4 weeks and see how I am then. I am a bit uncomfortable adding it on to what I already take as my levels are already at the top of ranges so I want to reduce my levo and add the armour then build up gradually if need be - I guess my eventual aim is to end up solely on NDT if I can and it works. So if I do 125mcg and 1/2 grain for 3 weeks does that sound ok? Then 100mcg and 1 grain? Would be grateful for any assistance in this.
Also I got adrenal results back the other day and would appear to have pretty low adrenals, Dr S wasnt overly concerned, he said we could investigate if I wanted but the treatement would be steroids which I am not keen on so I am thinking two things - one I could use nutri adrenal and see if that helps - where do I buy this? And two, I read on STTM that I can use the CT3M method with armour also and this is supposed to help adrenals, where on earth would I start with that? Would I just take my 1/2 grain at 5am etc then my levo at night?? I dont have a clue, please help.
I think thats all I was thinking!!! But I may come up with more! lol. It was recommended to fill the prescription at Springfield Pharmacy but I know from TUK that there are a few so Im going to ring round for prices.
Many thanks in advance.
p.s I have a stupid excitement going on that this could be my final step but I just know Im going to end up deflated when it doesnt all go swimmingly!!! lol Must keep expectations in check!!!
