So in my previous post I talked about my full medical story and the trouble with doctors diagnosing me with hypothyroidism because my test results come back "low normal". Anyways, I finally found a doctor that is listening to me and agrees with me. He started me out on Armour Thyroid about 3 months ago on a really low dosage of 15 mg. 6 weeks ago he increased me to 30 mg. My TSH used to be normal while my free t3 and free t4 were low, but after starting on Armour, my TSH dropped a lot. Once I increased to 30 mg, my latest results show that my TSH is now below the reference range... is this normal? With the increased dosage, my free t3 slowly raised but my free t4 hasn't raised at all. I'm waiting for a call from my doctor to see if he is going to increase my dosage again.
I know there are a lot of supplements out there to help with thyroid issues such as B12, Adrenal support, Zinc, Iron, Magnesium, Selenium, Probiotics, Proteolytic enzymes, and Iodine. Those are the one's that I have heard that help with different symptoms caused by hypothyroidism. Does anyone know what supplements I can take and how many different kinds I can take while on Armour? I plan on asking my doctor, but I want other hypo patients opinions on what works for them.
