I am 70 years young. 1/3 of thyroid I still have. All female organs were removed 30 years ago. Everything. My synthetic hormones were the cause of breast cancer 5 years ago and I had 2 lumps removed.
I refused radiation and chemo. My own Dr. apparently did not know how to get my thyroid going in the right direction. My last blood work I asked for the Tsh, T3 and T4 results. She said my thyroid was normal... T4 was within range and I had to ask for my T3... when she found the results it was .04. My dosage was raised. My doctor informed me that I am one that cannot take hormones. My naturopath Dr has me now on Progestrone 200mg.
I am on welfare and cannot afford $80.00 per visit. Is there maybe another way to keep my hormones in balance? Your help of course will be held confidential. The Thyroid I'm taking is 180mg of Armour thyroid. Thanks.
