LDN - Hashi's

Hi, has anyone had good results with using LDN (low dose naltrexone)? if so, are you in the UK? I'm going to ask my GP for a prescription but i am not hopeful so wondered if there was any other users who had advice? i have contacted the LDN charity who've been very helpful with loads of info of where to start/go but great to hear more patient experiences using it for Hashi's. Thanks

I tried LDN a couple of years back but didn't notice much improvement in my overall health.

I started using it again this year, and had quite a reasonable period of good health until I got a virus at the end of September. I was so ill, I forgot to take the LDN, and after 4 weeks the virus was going but I was feeling really tired again. I suddenly remembered the LDN, and a few days after restating it, I felt a lot better.

I would be surprised if your doctor would prescribe it. It is (IMHO) expensive to buy, so if you want details of how to try it, PM me.

wow thats good to hear it made you feel a lot better....are you still taking it now? is it a lifetime thing? I'm currently experimenting with adding T3 to my T4 meds as i am high in RT3 now so want to get to grips with that and ask my GP on the 18th about the LDN. if it's a no go i'll follow the LDN charity advice of paying £35 to speak to a consultant. is that how you got yours?


I believe that it is something that we need to take for life, or at least as long as any immune system problem exists.

I simply read up on it all, and ordered tablets on-line , and then made up my own liquid.
