Had good results with Armour for a time, but have started taking t4/t3 now. It's too early to know if it will be helpful, but I wanted to try it. My doctor was resistant last time I asked, but this time she had recently been to a conference and heard something that convinced her it was a viable treatment option. I read on this forum that doing my bloodwork early in morning before eating and before taking pills was the best manner of getting a good reading and she was appalled at my numbers. It did make a big difference. She wouldn't allow that timing had any impact, but no matter. Now I am unsure how to manage my supplements - calcium etc. I take 75 mg levo and 5 mg T3 in the morning and am supposed to take another 5 mg T3 in the pm. Will the second dose of T3 mean that I can no longer take calcium or iron at noon? I usually take one of the other at noon and then the other in the evening so they don't interfere with each other or the thyroid meds. What to do?
