I have taken OC and then HRT orally and then had much better results by using a transdermal patch. It was terrific. I never had to worry about my doses. It was always there and purportedly always keeping my levels good.
Why don't they develop patches for Thyroid?
Yes, it's easy to swallow a pill. And it's easy to swallow an HRT or OC too.
We're talking about hormones here, so I figure all hormones could use similar delivery systems. We'd be able to bypass the liver and have thyroid (preferably T3) absorbed into the skin.
A drug company could make a lot of money because men could wear a patch too!
And why stop there, I've also used vagifem (a little pill) and menoring for HRT. Why not Thyroid? (wouldn't work for men <g>)
Has anyone tried this? Is there any history on this? If Big Pharma made this, would you use it?
Just thinking . . .
