Curiosity question - if you are having to go to this much trouble to make the reformulations work for you, why not just switch to synthetic and supplement with T3? My TSH was at .01 at the time and I was still having pretty serious symptoms. My endo did this last year and I feel a million times better than I ever did on Armour. It just wasn't worth all the issues I was having trying to fill the Armour + feeling bad.

I don't feel that crushing them is a hassle. I've not tried a T3 synthetic but if it works as wonderfully as the synthetic T4 did.... then no thanks. I tend to stick with what works. Armour always worked wonderfully for me until they changed the filler. Since I've been crushing it (5 days now), I'm back to feeling great again.

I think it is a matterr of finding the right synthetic. I was on Synthroid first and had a horrible reaction to it, which is why I was on Armour. I was very hesistant to switch to another synthetic, but I couldn't even get Armour anymore, so I had to do something.

Can you get Nature-Throid?
