Welcome to our forum lindabcampbell,

I am not sure what you mean by 'overmedicated thyroid' and assume you mean you have hyperthyroidism? Do you mean 'undermedicated' i.e. hypothyroidism as that would seem to be the case as your are taking Armour Thyroid which is for hypothyroidism..

I realise there may be a language barrier.

If you take Armour you can increase by 1/4 tablet every two weeks and also by taking your temperature and pulse regularly too so that neither goes too high and you can drop back to previous dose if either rises.

Always get a print-out of your results with the ranges and you can post if you have a question.

Your B12, Vit D, iron, ferritin and folate levels should also be optimum.
