I was on 60 mcgs of Armour Thyroid for only 15 days and my levels went down from 159 to 23. I thought wow...this is going pretty well. But then my family doc said I should really see an Endocrinologist because of my starting level. OB said not to worry about baby because my free t4 was within range and thats what matters more.
Endocrinologist couldnt have disagreed more. He wants to switch my meds to levothyroxin and have me on 112 mcgs. He recommended a drastic approach of consuming 5 pills immediately...then 1 a day. I will be honest, Im scared to take that much at once...esp being pregnant. Should I trust his judgement?
