Details of all UK and a number of non-UK thyroid hormone products are readily available here:

You will have to decide for yourself whether glycerol is a form of sweetener:

Glycerol (or glycerine, glycerin) is a simple polyol (sugar alcohol) compound. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is widely used in pharmaceutical formulations. Glycerol has three hydroxyl groups that are responsible for its solubility in water and its hygroscopic nature. The glycerol backbone is central to all lipids known as triglycerides. Glycerol is sweet-tasting and generally considered non-toxic.



What do your test results show? Is it possible you simply need an increase in Naturethroid?


Have you had your vitamin B12, ferritin, folate and Vitamins D and A levels checked?


hiya ,

thank for the replies , folate low , b12 low , tsh 0.03 t4 8


Hi, I have major problems with fillers and even had problems with the syrup, I use Thyrogold which I buy, might be worth mentioning to your doctor.
