Any experiences on Dr. Lowe’s ThyroGold, Thyroid-S or Thiroyd from Thailand as opposed to prescription thyroid treatment?

The non-prescription desiccated thyroid products: Nutri Meds which is available in either porcine or bovine desiccated thyroid, and is far weaker, plus Dr. Lowe’s ThyroGold, which seems to be stronger and workable. Neither Thyroid-S or Thiroyd from Thailand are by prescription, and patients report them working quite well.

Would very much appreciate any comments/experience on these products, particularly if you have been able to compare to Levythyroxine/Armour/Any other NDT?

Personally my body didn't like either of the Thailand products. Neither did it like levothyroxine. Erfa was o.k. but Naturethroid did suit and I felt well on it. I also feel well on T3 only.

Thank you shaws.

Hello

I am also looking at Thyro Gold - researching everything - The only thing about this product is it seems rather expensive. Good Luck x

Hi sheenah, I think I'm about to purchase either Armour or Naturethroid online rather than investigate the others further.

Hello yes, one of our other contributors have gone for Naturethroid because it is hypoallerginic (Sorry about the spelling it is late). I don't know where you are buying from - I have no experience yet. <name of supplier> seems cheaper but as I say, no experience. Isn't it bad that we have to do this? Sleep well xx

I've been using Thyroid-S from thailand for about a year now and believe I am slowly finding a treatment that suits me. Levo did not. T3 added to NDT didn't suit me either.

I found it necessary to boost my Adrenals and supplement my vits and mins before the NDT worked harmoniously with my body. And, indeed, before I could tolerate more than a grain. I am now up to 2.5 (recently).

My biggest problem was insomnia. Thyroid-S appears to have helped significantly with that. It has not really helped with any of my other symptoms (lack of concentration/exhaustion, hair loss, weight gain). It is inexpensive and I buy it through eBay. There are 2 suppliers selling what seem to be identical product as 'research grade' NDT.

I haven't seen a doctor about my thyroid condition since about 3 months before beginning NDT. I got fed up with being told 'it's your age' and 'go on a diet'. With a severely limited store of energy I have to choose my battles. And the NHS is not one I feel I am able to win.

I hope you find this helpful

Thank you Humphrey, I'm about to purchase either Armour or Naturethroid online as I too have had the same battle with the NHS.

I found the Nutri meds supplement good, but Thiroyd didn't suit me. Now on a small amount of T3 only, plus occasional Nutri meds porcine if I need it. Note that I am not nearly as ill as most people on here and have more adrenal than Thyroid issues.

Hi Angel of the North, have you been on Nutri Adrenal Extra, and if so, has it been effective?

Reply

No, just plain Nutri Adrenal - didn't want the extra vitamins. I preferred the Nutri meds adrenal supplement, but changed when there was a time when no one would ship it to the UK. Both have definitely helped, but you don't always notice unless you stop taking them.

Hi Angel, have only just seen this, 3 years too late ;-). Every body who commented about nutri meds said they didn't help a jot. I think they helped a little but not as much as NDT has.

Sorry to hick-jack your thread but I am also very interested to hear people's comments on Thyro-Gold. Jax

I'm about to swap from x3 grains of Thiroyd to Thyroid S - any advice on swapping? Should I reduce the dose?

Thanks

Hi Frustradedmum

I would have thought they were enough alike not to need to alter the amount, though I'm hardly an expert.

If you check here (control+F to search for Thyroid S and thiroyd, which is under Thyroid S ): stopthethyroidmadness.com/a...

Do you take the grains in one go, if so, probably better to split them.
