Hiya Haven't been around for a while, but wondered if anybody could help. Although, I'm not sure if there is actually an answer. I have been taking NDT for a while now, but have recently decided to go vegan, so I'm having a bit of an issue with the whole pig thyroid thing! I don't know what the alternative is, to be honest, because even if I changed over to synthetic T3 and T4, one has a gelatine capsule and the other has lactose (correct me if I'm wrong).
The way I see it right now is this: I have no choice. I either stop taking it, and go back to being ill, or continue to take it and stay well. It's playing on my mind - I wish their was an alternative, but it seems not??
