This downloadable paper gets twisted up in logical knots as it tries to explain why patients "overtreated" with T4 or combination feel better. Of course, "over treatment" is defined as suppressing TSH. I sometimes wonder why I bother if medics aren't paying the slightest attention to work outside their experience and mental capability. The latter I think bears the clue. The story of placebo effects are trotted out in a vain attempt to rationalise an unrationisable situation. NB half the authors are from Newcastle where dwells the fearsome Pearce.
