    "How to replace Synthroid with Nutripak glandular: This is only a ball
    park conversion factor since I don't think any thyroid glandular is
    0.2 mg (200 mcg) of Synthroid (T4) = 2 grains or 120 mg of Nutripak.
    Example: client taking 0.75 mg of Synthroid.
    Amount Nutripak needed = 120 mg X .72/.2 = 450 mg/60 mg = 7.5 grains/2
    gr per tab = 3.75 tabs of Nutripak."

    The Synthroid to armour conversion seems to be consistent with this link:

    But I wonder where she's getting the .72 and the .2 numbers from.

    Who is taking 750 mcg of Synthroid?
