Which is the 'purest T3 '


I suffer from multiple chemical sensitivity - can only tolerate Wockhardt T4 -  and have had problems when trying NDT (NatureThroid and Erfa) and T 3 (Cynomel Mexican T3 and NHS Lio)  Initially I thought that I was unable to tolerate the T3 content but have since wondered whether the fillers/binders in the NDt/T3 could have been the trouble.

Would be grateful to hear others views/experiences on this and also, which T3 or NDt has the least fillers etc. please

I have Hashis

Thank you

  • The purest NDT that I know of is WP - made by the makers of Nature Throid. See getrealthyroid.com/why-get-...

  • Daffers,

    All T3 has fillers.  I think you'll have to drill down to see which fillers in which brands cause you trouble.

  • Thanks Clutter have started to drill down as you suggest.

  • I take thyrogold ( dr John Lowe) and this is the best I have felt in 20 years. You don't need a prescription as it is sold as a dietary aid and makes no claims of curing or treating thyroid disease . But it has all the hormonesT4 T3 T2 T1 . If you go to " thyrogold" there is a full list of ingredients , hope this helps Jay 

  • Thanks Jay it sounds most interesting and worth a go!  Will look at ingredients as you suggest 


  • Hi am having the same issues as you I am highly sensitive to all thyroid medication is have you been able to come up with a solution to your sensitivities

  • Hi

    I can only tolerate Wockhardt 25mcg as very little fillers etc.  in it. No am really struggling as my T3 is bit low and would benefit from a top up. May well try Thyrogold as Jay suggests above. Am also considering LDN to treat the Hashi's . Have you any ideas ? what really worries me is that it's not only chemicals in food and stuff, it's chemicals in other medications too which doesn't bode well

    ANY ideas ?
