I've been on a trial of Armour and due for review by Endo. I expect my TSH will be suppressed (it was last time) but Endo has warned me that he'll be cutting my dose if it is. He doses by TSH, even if FT4 and FT3 are well within normal range, as he says they fluctuate too much throughout the day to be of value in this instance.
But I'm sure I've read somewhere that TSH is useless as a dosing guide when on any type of NDT as TSH will always be suppressed. Can anyone fill me in? I'll be getting blood test results from Endo today/tomorrow and he'll be deciding my new dose there and then.
Although he's an Endocrinologist (and open-minded one at that), he specialises in diabetes and usually needs nudges in the right direction. I'm worried that he'll cut dose, especially just as Winter is coming as I was very unwell last year as soon as it got cold.
