Looking to pick your (hopefully not too foggy) brains.....
Currently on armor - felt great at 2 1/4 grains but local doctors (I also see private endo) said tsh was low showing I need to decrease my armor. Which I did, by a 1/4 grain. Blood test after blood test, this went on till I was on 1 3/4 grains.
I went to doctors with some other (I thought unrelated) issues and new doctor said your recent thyroid bloods say your T4 is low! -14.1 and you are very hypothyroid! You need some thyroxine now. (Now back up to 2 1/4 grains armour for 3 months to see it goes) In fact it hadn't been good for the last x3 blood tests?!?! You should be increasing your armour and not decreasing!
Anyways, since the start of all these decreases (6months) I have put on nearly a stone? Is this then due to the falling T4?
I am also an athlete and cannot lose this weight despite my 3 hours daily exercise regime and a very strict, healthy diet?
Many thanks x
