I have just had a frustrating conversation with my doctor. She has more or less let me find my own way through the thyroid jungle, giving me T3 when I asked for it, and now Armour, however, she feels pressured by the endo at the local hospital to warn me about the dangers of overmedication and possible damage to the heart. I agree with her that one should be careful, but we disagree on the basis for dose adjustments. She wants to base it on blood tests only (she doesn’t get the TSH surpressed on T3 bit), and when I say my pulse is around 60, my temperature under 37, she still comes with the heart thing.
Does anyone know anyone, or heard about anyone, who had heart damage from NDT or T3?
