I've been taking 150mmg of Levothyroxine for over 20 years and want to replace taking this with desiccated thyroid. My nutritionist said as an MS sufferer '20 years' I would never get better as long as I continued taking Levothyroxine. My two question I have is a) how much desiccated thyroxine would I need to take and b) can I get this from my GP, if not how do I purchase this?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
berg; Sorry not going to be a lot of help yes your GP can prescribe the old armour thyroid if she or he well many don't like to use it, No matter what your natural dr.says but that well depend on you and your doctor and your doctor gp should already be involved with this the only way to tell what dose you well need is through blood test just like they do on the Levothyroxine. I sujest you start talking to your gp before you taper down on the levothyroxine and get your thyroid all messed up.Really sorry can't be of much more help. Chuck1957
