Update!!!! If you read my last few posts, I had an appt with most recent ENDO 2 days ago. I stood firm with my T3 i had to beg for..... I told her before you began I need you to treat me as a. individual, my symptoms and not my TSH. She listened. This was the deciding factor of if i walked out or stayed. I fought way too hard to get to where i am to have a dr take that away and put me back there again. Most of us need at least a little T3 to get better, conversion issue or not. She said yu can stay on the 5 mcg cytomel generic and alternating dose brand synthroid if you feel good. She went on to say she wished we could get my TSh back up to 1 though because it was perfect. I said but i feel better at .35! I said i finally feel pretty good except evening crash. I brought up giving NDT a try just to see and if it didn't work for me i have a perfect combo to go back to with synthetics to at least have me feeling good. She would not prescribe Nature throid when i brought that up. Claimed not FDA approved. I aid it has been around since 1930 and have no recalls for inconsistency over the years and only 2 ingredients. She claims armour is around a lot longer and Is FDA approved. She says there weren't recalls on the nature throid because they do not test it so you cannot go on that. So I will start armour to try out. Cytomel had gluten i found out and since i am 80% gluten and i am totally dairy and soy free.... it was being counter productive feeding myself gluten daily in the form of a pill. We shall see. I take 50/75 alternating synthroid and 5 mcg cytomel daily. She prescribed 60 of armour. Is that enough? I know that is 38 T4 and 9 T3. She claims that equals 100 to synthroid. What do you think guys? scared!!
