I was diagnosed hypo about 3 years ago after my 2nd daughter was born. After 3 months on Levothyroxine I was barely able to function and stopped taking them myself. I was lucky to find a great doctor who prescribed me Armour but unfortunately have not been able to see him long term due to the cost. The endo I now see publicly has let me stay on Armour (with a lot of moaning about how much they all hate it, harder to read blood results apparently!) up to now. But they really aren't happy about me staying on it now that I am 5 weeks pregnant ( they knew we were trying to have a baby and I have been lectured on this at every appointment for the last while). I've researched Armour and pregnancy as much as I can and I'm happy from what I've read to stay on it for my pregnancy, as Levothyroxine just isn't an option for me. But I find the big song and dance about it stresses me out and makes me dread each appointment. Their reason is that they've no evidence that it is safe for pregnancy,with its fillers and binders, and also that they find it hard to interpret my blood results on Armour?!!!
I'm sorry for the rant, but I was wondering can anyone think of any reason why it wouldn't be safe to be on Armour while pregnant? I feel confident I'm doing the right thing, but they almost make me feel guilty that I might harm the baby
