I am currenlty taking just 1/4 grain of Armour but even that has to be split into 2 separate doses. Would it even be any benefit to find out what causes my resistance? When i asked the endo whom I consulted privately, I was told that there are many complex reasons for it. My last blood test results showed a TSH of 8.5 which my GP has just left me with, saying that I should try and increase the amount I take gradually to see if I can manage any more and go back to him if I need to!! Strangely, even with this small dose, I actually feel better and do not fall asleep at the drop of a hat! A fellow sufferer on here has said that slow release T3 could be the answer but apparently it is not available here. Would taking tiny amounts at regular intervals during the day work on the same principle I wonder? It is actually unbelievable that we are left to try and work this through for ourselves, though after some 6 years since my body decided it did not like thyroxine, I can't say that all my efforts have done me much good! Oh dear, on reading that over, I do sound rather sorry for myself! Love to all Flo xxx
