I was wondering if anyone had any experience of Armour thyroid. I had a total thyroidectomy in 2010. Since then my Endo has struggled to get my levels right. He's tried T4 solely up to 150mcg and T4 / T3 in combination at varying doses most recently 75mcg Levothyroxine and 30 mcg Liothyronine. I have asked to trial T3 only at a higher dosage but he has been against this as he thinks I'm over medicated. My most recent test results are T4 - 11, T3 - 3.7, TSH 0.01. My T4 and T3 levels have only recently fallen within the 'normal' range, however my TSH has always been suppressed. I am still symptomatic - breathless, palpitations, insomnia, cold, excess sweating, exhaustion, difficulty losing weight, foggy head, labile mood, etc etc...He has suggested I come off T4 and T3 and try Armour thyroid instead - 1.5 tabs daily (1 grain tabs). I am concerned that I'm going to feel wretched without the T3. My body doesn't convert T4 to T3 due to the severity of the Graves thus the requirement for T3 supplementation. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks Jem
