If you've been on my website before, or if you've read my blog, then you know that one of my major goals is to try and change how doctors think about treating thyroid-related issues.
My personal belief is that patients do not benefit from the archaic treatment paradigm which focuses solely on the TSH.

T3 is the single most important thyroid hormone that your body creates.
It is also the most powerful and biologically active of all thyroid hormones.
But, like anything in life, too much of a good thing can be a problem.

This article will walk you through 6 problems with NDT and elaborate on several things you'll want to consider before using this medication.
If you have or suspect that you have thyroid problems then this article is very important to you.
It turns out that the majority of people who have a thyroid problem have it because of an autoimmune condition.

This is probably one of the most common questions that I get asked on a daily basis!

This article will help you understand why thyroidectomy and post-RAI patients can still benefit from thyroid supplements, how your thyroid can still be slowed down by certain issues, and why just because you are taking thyroid medication doesn't mean that your body is getting what it needs.
