There is something I have been wondering about Armour Thyroid. The maker of Nature Throid and WP Thyroid stresses that their products are free from corn and gluten.

I wonder if corn and gluten are necessarily a problem if you are not allergic to any of them? Or is there any other reason to avoid medication containing corn and gluten?

Erfa contains talc, and I am not sure how healthy that is in the long run...

I'd definitely sooner have corn than some of the fillers in tablets. One at the moment that particularly bothers me is Polyvinylpyrolidone, which sounds 'plastic'and does give me a plastic taste in my mouth. Wonder if this could be what is responsible for the glue-like lumps on skin, although this is in Nutri-Adrenal I did not have it while taking these, until six months later when I was changed from Goldshield Eltroxin to Mercury Pharma Levothyroxine. Maybe some fillers don't mix with others in different meds!


Interesting, and really complicated, right?!?!?
