I am currently on Levothyroxine 50mcg and Liothyronine 10mcg. Long story but after four years different ratios are not working (and never have been) sympton wise. I don't seem to need large doses of either to bring my levels down- they are below:-
TSH 5.54 T4 11.7 (just in normal range- according to endo) and low-normal T3 3.7. I have at one time been on 20mcg T3 and still felt no different. What I am saying is no matter what I try my awful symptons still continue. I am curremtly suffering with a lot of inflammation stomach wise and sinus.(sinus- which is in the last 6 months)
Consultant is willing to help me trial Armour but will not prescribe- I am trying to work out how much Armour thyroid I will require which equates to 50mcg levo and 10 mcg liothyronine-
I seem to be very sensitive to slight changes as in hyper/hypo symptons- cannot tell the difference so will need to start slowly. I have had my TSH down to 1.08- Free T4 12.3 and Free T3 at 4.3- did not feel any better.
I have to try Armour thyroid next.
Any advice would be great.
