I am here to help you with your concerns.
Your TSh level is indeed in normal range ( goal below 2.5).
Synthroid alone should be sufficient.
However, in some people there may be selenium deficiency.
This can make synthroid or thyroid medication less effective.
Hence, selenium should be supplemented at 100 to 200 mcg daily.
why do you think taking the armour 30mg defintly is resulting in more fatigue. and should i be taking those "adrenal" supports ashwagandha and tyrosine.
armour also has T3 besides levothyroxine.
is synthroid likely to be a better bet than armour
Some people think, t3 supplementation may actually make levothyroxine less effective.
And this also masks the true thyroid insufficiency.
That is why armour is not god for everyone.
synthroid is a better choice and selenium
i know my mood is better on thyroid medicine. i think i will ask the md to switch back to synhtroid was on that at first.
ashwagandha and tyrosine are alternative medications --they will may be helpful with adrenal fatigue which is however scientifically not proven.
yes that will be appropriate
what do you think of the ideaof holistic medicine that adrenals need support for thyroid to work best
thanks a lot will switch out of armour to synthroid
holistic medicine works to some extent.
But the scientific proof is lacking.
Hence, the wellbeing is based on individual experiences.
ok much appreciation, no doubt the armour, maybe t3 is causing this excessive nervous, sweating, etc.again. thank you.
