Doctor Switched Me
From Synthroid to Armour Thyroid July
Fax to Lloyd from T.W. Houston, Texas Female.
subject: 9 fold drop in viral load in 13 months
Just so you know, I've been taking the thymus for
about thirteen months now, and in that time my viral load
has gone from 18.300.000 last august down to 2.100.000.
I'd have to say that was pretty good progress, even
if it does seem to be taking it's own good time getting there.
At any rate, it's certainly more that enough to give one hope,
don't you think?
On the other hand, my enzymes are another story entirely.
They were completely normal until last December when
they suddenly flew completely out of control reaching a high
at one point of 1212 on the AST and 859 on the ALT. The
only thing I could figure out that might be causing it was
that about 6 to 8 weeks before my doctor had switched me from
Synthroid to Armour Thyroid and lately I seem to be allergic
to pork products.
Unfortunately I did not make the connection for almost a
month after taking the enzymes began to shoot up. But
once I did I switched myself back to the Synthroid and the
counts started slowly coming back down. However, they've still
not gone back to normal, they are hovering around 91 on the
ALT and 136 on the AST.
Anyway, I'm feeling pretty good and I look even better, so
I guess that's worth something.
My best to all the folks in your office, many of whom I've
gotten to know a little bit in these last thirteen months.
