Saw my GP today (who has been nothing but supportive so far) and we are working to improve my activity levels by working on my thyroid medication. I have got my tsh down to 1.86 and t4 and t3 almost at correct levels (t4 16.51 and t3 4.02 on 125 mg of thyroxin) and feel a lot better but still not completely right. She says that whilst she may support me to get tsh lower she says that below 1.4 might present health risks including bone density issues.
she also says that the reason that uk gp's do not prescribe Armour (which I am considering trying if energy levels do not improve) as there are safety concerns that would preclude this again I think it was bone density issues and one other which I failed to note down So she is very reluctant to support me in any changeover. Any idea whether Armour or similar is widely prescribed elsewhere eg USA for example by medical proffesionals. Any thoughts comments or info would be very welcome Stewart
