I get the impression that some folks here aren't necessarily being prescribed their thyroid "meds", but doing their own experimentation on their own, to improve their health. Is that the case? I have thyroid issues myself, and, not happy with the endo's I've gone to, so I have a bottle of Nutri-Meds Porcine thyroid but not sure how much is best.

Have you ever checked your pulse and temp?

I went to an endocrinologist and he found a small goiter and when I told him I had taking thyroid before he said I should continue but when he sent his report by letter a week later there was only a prescription for iodine. Total waste of time. My thyroid levels are in the lower range but still in the range so no hypo diagnose for me! If you read journals of endocrinology they constantly focus on tsh values and ignoring symptoms. I think the endos don't want to destroy the business model for the pharmaceutical industry. Most healthy people produce about 100mcg of t4 per day, if you take a grain of ndt you have probably balanced most deficiency. The problem for a lot of hypos is that the t4 isn't converted into t3 due to liver problems, nutritional deficiency like selenium etc or t3 can't get into the cell due to high pufa, high adrenaline, high cortisol & estrogen, free fatty acids etc. Most people would benefit from a small amount / a grain of thyroid, the problem is if you take to much you can give yourself an heart attack.

I see an endocrinologist and through her get a prescription for my T4 and T3. Should Idealabs Haidut come up with a T4 I will use it with her support.
