>Just read synthoid can loss of taste and smell but the bioidentical armour doesn't
I think that sounds very dubious. I do not see why Synthroid would cause loss of smell.
Armour thyroid is a dried extract from pigs thyroid glands. Synthroid and Armour both contain T4, which is a natural hormone. Armour also contains T3, but the ratio of T3 to T4 in Armour is probably excessive. Synthroid (levothyroxine ie. T4) is a bioidentical hormone. Armour is no more bioidentical than Synthroid. Armour is more variable and may make it difficult to stabilise thyroid function.
