“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
From what I understand, TSH needs to be suppressed so inflammation is minimized for thyroid or any nodules. My TSH was 0.0something last time it was checked and my T3 was not in range. I didn't even have my TSH checked last time bc I'm not too worried about it. Didn't you say you have a nodule?
Also, I don't take my thyroid meds the morning of my labs. I've read countless times that doing so will show that T3 levels are higher than they actually are. Especially if you have labs done with in a few hours of taking meds. T4 peaks at around 2 hours.
If I'm wrong, I'm sure somebody else will chime in.
Armour, Naturethroid contain both T4 and T3 as well as other hormones. Cytomel is T3 only.
Too many doctors believe TSH is the hormone to watch. Doing so, can keep someone under medicated, feeling horrible, and can create other health issues.
