I recently ordered American Biologics Thyroid Glandular and added it to Thyroid-S. I have been on Thyroid-S for almost eight months and I have been doing well on it, even if my FT3 levels are only midrange and my FT4 levels at bottom of range. But my TSH is completely suppressed, and my doctor in Belgium (a so called Hertoghe doctor) said that shows the drug is working.
I have taken thyroid glandulars in the past, and they have never done much for me. This is the first time I try this brand.
It's specified on the bottle that AB's Thyroid Glandular is not an extract, but I did not know how to interpret that. Each capsule is said to contain 130 mg of pure thyroid gland (bovine origine, not an extract).
Anyway, this product seems extremely powerful. After only a couple of days on it, I have developed some very specific hyper symptoms: excessive sweating and itching being the most noticeable ones. There is no way I can stay on it without decreasing the Thyroid-S dosage. Maybe it would be a good idea to stop taking it altogether?
This reaction makes me wonder if Thyroid-S is actually working more effectively than I realise, even though my FT3 levels are only midrange and my FT4 levels at bottom of range...?
