What does it take for an endocrinologist to decide if armour is suitable for subclinical hypo- thyroidism? If test results are all in "normal" range.

In brief: Subclinical hypo..

Subclinical hypothyroidism occurs when peripheral thyroid hormone levels are within normal reference laboratory range but serum thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels are mildly elevated.
If all test results are normal then it does not sound like subclinical hypothyroidism.

In brief: He/she will not

Armour brand dessicated thyroid is no longer the first choice of real thyroidologists to treat hypothyroidism.
Be weary of anyone foisting it on you. See a real thyroidologist to find out if you really need any replacement for subclinical hypothyroidism.
