I met a fantastic nurse today! She had a TT sometime ago and has managed to stay fit! I asked her how she stayed so thin and her response was Synthroid. I asked her why that mattered and she said that she used to take Levothyroxine and had problems with her weight, she said her TSH fluctuated all the time and her hair kept falling out. Being a nurse she she decided to investigate and she found out that generic meds like Levo are not guaranteed to have the exact amount of thyroid hormone as prescribed in each pill but that the brand name medication does. Because of that your TSH will fluctuate! Shocked I asked her how can they do this, she said it has to do with the fillers the generic brands use.
I'm going to investigate this new data further, I will interview some pharmacists and my Endo on the 28th and will get back to you on this new discovery!
