No Thyroid Gland: Now What?

Issue #229  August 18, 2014

Welcome to KnowYourThyroid.

Today, we are talking about those of us who have no thyroid. I have found that most doctors prescribe Synthroid or a generic T4 only thyroid hormone, with no thought about the fact that you can’t convert T4 hormone to T3 hormone anymore. I had to beg a doctor to give me Armour Thyroid but it was worth it. I feel better than I have in years. So, if your prescription is not controlling your symptoms, consider adding T3 to your replacement therapy.

Enjoy!
