Hi there, I've just come across this resource so this is my first post. It's helpful to read some of these posts. Has anyone used Thiroyd by Greater Pharma Manufacturing co?
I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid in 2011, but realise I must have had it for years beforehand. I didn't start taking thyroxine until 2014.
I read Barry Durrant peatfield's book which pointed me to taking natural thyroxine rather than levothyroxine and I sourced ERFA 30mg on which I felt much better, and levels stabilised, albeit at the lowest end of the range. I can no longer get ERFA and a natural health practitioner suggested 'THIROYD'. I'm not sure it works as the last 2 blood test results are outside the low range, even though I've had to up the dose to 75mg. ERFA tasted like pig thyroid whereas this just tastes a bit sweet so it's made me suspicious.
I really prefer to keep to natural desicated thyroid and I'm not sure what to do. I also have osteopenia and am being referred to rheumatology. I think the underactive thyroid may be the underlying cause of the other issues so I really want to try and get it stabilised within the normal range.
Thanks, I look forward to hearing any suggestions, Louise
