I have shed a stone now since being on Armour thyroid, I started taking it on the 21st of March 2009 so just over a pound per week, I have done nothing other change from Levothyroxine, and if anything I am eating more!
To you Doctors out there who promote Levothyroxine and other synthetic options only, I would ask you to please consider that some people can be violently intolerant of it, as I was!
To my fellow thyroid suffers I would say don't ever give up hope, your salvation may be just a little tablet away, I had over two years of Hell, living in a dark place with me hiding inside. I can see the blue skies now, the difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how rich and beautiful life is, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
Now I feel great on Armour, I am almost back to my old self and life, at last is finally worth living again!
