Please would someone be so helpful to explain results; I have been Hashimoto's for the last 7 years - due to lack of knowledge from the medical profession, I am about to embark on taking 60mg of Armour; ( purchase privately ) in order to protect my the thyroid.

Red cell count 5.28 3.95 - 5.15

Eosinophils High 0.56 0.0 - 0.04

Fee T4 5.4 12.0 - 22.0

Symptoms Depression off the scale - tiredness - brain melts away - fade into a non - functioning state of oblivion.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Your ft4 is v low, isn't it, do you have a tsh reading with range as well?


Hi Aspmama,

Thank you for responding - my TSH is 3.87. Just been reading stop he Thyroid madness website; not too sure what to do as they have changed the formula of Armour; not very positive for a lot of people ,as they are trying other NDTs.

What's your experience?

Many thanks

NDT is the way fwd although

So ill today - I can't believe I could feel any worse.


Are you currently on levo, and if so, what dose?

The experts on your results will be along in a minute, but they need to know that I think.


Hi Aspmama,

I tried Levo - but, it didn't agree with me. Last year my T3 had dropped so low.. managed to obtain some from a friend who regularly visits Crete.

Stopped T3, as I now going to try an NDT; Just about to try Armour for the first time.

Unless, you believe there is something much more efficacious.

My brain is mush today - not too sure how I am managing to type or put my sentences together.

Feeeeelllll so illll!


Armour is expensive


Thyroid-s is cheaper and used by many
