I had never heard of T3, T4 or NDT until I joined this site.
I have been taking Levothyroxine (T4) for 30 years, and also took Liothyronine (T3) for a short while.
As I am now due to have a thyroidectomy, I have been investigating what changes may happen to my body and my treatment options
Natural Desicated Thyroid (NDT) seems to be loved and hated in equal measure by different patients and practitioners, but as it is made from the animal by-products of the food industry (pig or cow) I will not use it as I am vegetarian.
My question is - are T3 and T4 made from animal by-products or laboratory synthesis?
I don't seem to be able to find the answer to this on the net.
