September last year my total cholesterol was over 6 and in October I started armour. A few weeks ago it had gone down to 4.8 Also my weight has gone down half a stone. I have not changed my diet. I do however feel loads better on armour and am able to resume my work. I find it most interesting that by a change in meds has made such a difference in so many ways. I wish all gps and Drs and endos knew how well NDT works for so many people and that they would prescribe it. In the meanwhile I will just have to keep on self medicating. If my GP father had still been alive I am sure he would have prescribed it to me and others especially seeing the change in me from being so ill and sofa ridden to being back to my active self working physically on a buildings site. For me NDT (armour ) has given me my life back.
