brief history in 2006 i was put on armour thyroid 15mg once in the temps went up , CD57 went from a 10-42 LLMD said because of the increase in body temp lyme did not like it...who knows. So I remained on that dose for awhile... I saw a gain in weight of 10lbs, but not certain it was armour as i was on other meds with it ....and lost the weight again while on it. ...and havent been able to gain it back.

In May of this year the new LL NP tested my thyroid at my request because the LLMD's i had been seeing were just handing me more and more amour without running any labs. What she discovered was a high reverse T3 and put me on Cytomel(my body crashed, it was so bad i couldnt even walk...would fall asleep sitting up etc...tried slow release still horrific)

I am currently off all thyroid meds....I had my temp taken around noon at a dr office last week and for the first time in awhile it was 98.7- he suspected thyroid until he saw that normal temp.

Below are my labs. It appears to me my TSH improved being off Armour...but I dont know...i know some say that it measures the stored thyroid for months prior. I have been to 4 mainstream Dr and all have said they dont feel it is my thyroid and with my metabolism and how thin I am. I should never have been on a thyroid med.

Results as of March 14 while on Armour thyroid

Hi Mich!
I can't answer your questions, but have you tried posting this on HW's Thyroid forum??
It's been said:LD patients can be as ill as people w/ congest. heart failure & in as much pain as post-op patients.
