    Tyromax bovine T3:T4 ratio?

    In light that Tyromax is out of stock I am forced to switch to either another NDT or a synthetic combo. From my understanding, Tyromax has a T4:T3 ratio like all porcine NDT of approximately 4:1. However, Tyromax is from bovine source. If so, wouldn’t the ratio be closer to 10:1 as in all other...

    NDT and T3 cause bloating, cynoplus doesn’t—why?

    I believe I am hypothyroid, because I have a chronically low body temperature, and many of the hypothyroid symptoms Dr. Broda Barnes identified—constipation, early hair loss, poor memory, sluggish thinking. I can take 2 grains of cynoplus (4:1 T4:T3) with no issue. However, it doesn’t raise my...

    Ndt Dosing Frequency

    Ray recommends around 4 mcg T3 per hour. The real question: Does this mean 4mcg x 16 hours = max 64 mcg T3 per day? OR 4 mcg per hour, with no stacked dosages; ie. 8 mcg or 16 mcg T3 upon rising (1-2 grains), and then 4 mcg T3 when temperature drops?

    Solaray Thyroid

    At a local store I saw this, it has thyroid support but also says it has bovine "thyroid substance", "thyroxine free". If thyroxine is T4, does that mean that it still has the T3? Google or look at it on Thyroid Caps (60 Capsules) by Solaray at the Vitamin Shoppe. Thanks, John

    Can NDT Supplementation Raise TSH?

    My inclination is that NDT should reduce TSH levels. I am asking this because after seeing my 2.5 year old twin boys' lab TSH levels I feel a bit puzzled. My boys have been on (half a grain) thyroid for about two months. One of them is autistic and the other has a lot of developmental issues...
