New Habits Die Hard - Dessicated Thyroid Treatment
- In my practice, I routinely prescribe compounded dessicated thyroid or Nature-Throid for symptom relief until we can work to limit the patient’s immune system attack on the thyroid gland.
- Untreated hypothyroidism can lead to poor metabolism, low body temp, cloudy thinking, constipation, dry skin, hair loss, depression, and anxiety.
- This study is the first randomized trial comparing the conventional treatment prescribed by endocrinologists (T4) to a glandular prescription thyroid hormone, demonstrating equivalent efficacy, improved weight loss, and subjective preference of the dessicated group.
- Ask your doctor about adding T3 to your regimen or switching to a dessicated thyroid prescription if your symptoms are still lingering.
