Hello & welcome, I was just curious as to how many have joined us since the TV programme mentioning Thyroid problems was aired (8th Feb series 6 episode 2)
I hope you are finding some useful info & answers to your questions here on HU.
Did you know further detail can be found on the main TUK website? link....
I was also wondering how many suddenly realise that there are alternatives to Levothyroxine (T4) out there? i.e. T3 and NDT (natural dessicated thyroid) as mentioned in the programme.
I'm thinking a poll would be better evidence, but a reply for now, to gauge the need would be gratefully appreciated....
I am having trouble getting to grips with the fact that alternative medications are finally published (hooray!) but doctors are refusing (scared?) to prescribe them
and we remain ill............ so
1) I have joined since the programme (Y/N)
2) I realise there are alternatives to Levo (which doesn't suit some people)
3) I am already taking T3 or NDT (with/without Levo T4) prescribed or not
