I have recently been wondering whether it is advisable to take Bovine Glandular support to help with T4 to T3 conversion now that I am proceeding with NDT after confirming through trial and error that I have allergic reactions to synthetic T4 and T3. I have finally had a hashimoto diagnosis confirmed after years of being hypo without full medical support following paying for a semi full blood panel test and presenting it to my GP. The results showed that they can no longer deny that I do not convert T4 to T3 very well, and I also have high antibodies, therefore, my symptoms aren't just a "sign of getting older" or "hypochondria" as I was so often made to feel. After reading that to absorb T3 optimally, glandulars are often recommended, I purchased a bovine glandular supplement from the U.S and started taking it,however, since starting on NDT, I am no longer sure whether taking a bovine supplement with the porcine thyroid meds is advisable or not.
Any advice or experience from anybody in the know on such things would be gratefully received... Thanks!
