    Armour from Thailand

    Has anyone tried it? I got it out of desperation. I had my thyroid removed last November, due to large growths. Nodules, I think they're called! Anyway, to be honest, the op was a relief.I'd been ill a long time before diagnosis. I was put on levothyroxine. I fidled with it until I got it right. I felt fantastic. Month by month, I felt better and better. What a change from pre op. All was well for 5 months. Then I went out 'partying.' The hangover was like no other I'd ever had. It went on for a week. I concluded that alcohol somehow stops the medication. ( IS that right?) Basically, it's all gone down hill from there. My TSH has been tested, and hasn't changed. 0.03. A bit low, but I felt fine before.
    The Doc I go to hasn't got a clue. She just writes me off sick. I actually want to be well again!
    I read somewhere that some people can benefit from adding t3 to the mix. Hence my Thai meds. Does anyone know what 175mcg translates to? I might as well give it a go. I can't feel much worse.
    Any adice welcome.Angie

    Hi @angiej55

    This is how you convert T4 dosage to T3.

    If your current dosage of T4 is 175mcg and want to convert to T4 and T3, that's what you do.

    Divide 175mcg by 13
    175/13 = 13.5mcg (say 15mcg) <------ Your dosage of T3.

    Now multiply this dosage of Te with 9 to get your T4. So it would be
    13.5 x 9 = 121mcg (Say 125mcg) <------ Your dosage of T4.

    Bear in mind this is accurate conversation and you might need to tweak it slightly up and down to get the final dosage. On the other hand

    1mcg of T3 = 4mcg of T4

    Hope this help
