Buzzer - thanks for the clarification. I'm really trying not to be alarmist, but sometimes I find people who are fairly natural living minded tend to downplay the real risks in pregnancy of going untreated. Sometimes people mistakenly think thyroid issues is closer to a vitamin deficency than say a life supporting hormone akin to insulin. And it can get out of control really fast during and after pregnancy which is what happened with my first... even with a family history of hypo, some signs I was going that way and doing all the pregnancy and post-partum screens, I somehow managed to end up with a TSH of 36 postpartum and was nearly suicidal from sheer exhaustion by that point. Hence my fairly aggressive language. But, you are correct to say that TSH =7.5 if she is already 8 weeks pregnant is likely not to cause great harm to her baby, etc. And, I generally feel that people should treat thyroid by symptoms when not pregnant. I appreciate your insights.
Blessed - Your TSH number looks good. Your free T4 suggests you need more supplementation while your T3 says you have more than enough. I'm getting out of my comfort zone, but I think this is one of those issues that comes up with Armour.... because there is T3 in there, you can get that T3 too high while not really having a 'high enough' T4 number. Armour, rather than your body, is likely making too much T3. If you feel ok, I'd leave it. If you are feeling anxious, irritable, any of those hypo symptoms and past mid pregnancy where needs have leveled off, I'd think about decreasing.
