my daughter is in the medical field and told me I should change from synthroid to armor thyroid what is the difference
Synthroid is a synthetic hormone. Armour thyroid is dessicated pig thyroid. Synthroid isn't always used as well by the body.
Amour is often not used by Drs because the amount of thyroid hormone is not consistent. Being that it is made from dried pig thyroids, pigs may have different levels of hormone and it is harder to regulate.
