4 Reasons Why You May Need More Thyroid Medication
by Holtorf Medical Group
Do you need more thyroid medication? If you're a thyroid patient, you may be taking a dose of thyroid medication that is larger than friends or family members who are also on thyroid hormone replacement.

Researchers took a look at some of the key factors that cause patients to need larger-than-expected dosages of thyroid medication.
