Having been on levo for 6 months with the less than desired effects (got half a stone fatter, marginally more energy but really nothing to shout about), I finally convinced my endo to put me on t3, however, have come on a detox retreat to the vivamayr clinic in austria, where they have told me that natural desicated thyroid would really support me well.
I haven't yet relayed this back to my endo, but according to the people here at the detox clinic, the manmade synthetic hormones are bad for my body and natural hormones is the way forward. I am hoping this is true.
Having had such a shit experience with levothyroxine I am now ever cynical and but I am really hoping I will respond well to the NDT treatment. I was on 50mcg of levo prior to this, and the NDT contains 50mcg T4 and 12.5mcg T3.
It is called Thyreogland and it is an Austrian or German brand. Has anyone had any experience with this?
Do let me know!
Positive thinking and hoping this will be my answer!!
