Do I need a thyroid supplement?
Your thyroid gland controls your metabolic rate and thereby the energy production in each cell of your body. Low thyroid function also called hypothyroidism creates many symptoms as your organs and tissues are not functioning optimally. The thyroid function can become underactive for example after a period of stress, illness, the wrong diet, pregnancy, and so forth. In cases where your body doesn’t resume its natural thyroid function, even after implementing our thyroid promoting diet and lifestyle principles, you may need thyroid replacement therapy either in the form of thyroid medication or an over-the-counter (non-prescription) desiccated thyroid supplement.
What is the best thyroid replacement therapy?
The best thyroid replacement therapy is one that contains both of the thyroid hormones that are naturally produced by the human thyroid gland, meaning both T4 and T3. Most people with hypothyroidism are prescribed medication with T4 only. If you have problems converting T4 to T3 (which is often the case if you have been hypothyroid for a long time) a medication with only T4 will not help you fully. We, therefore, recommend a thyroid replacement therapy with both T4 and T3 in ratios similar to that secreted by the human thyroid gland.
BiochemNordic does not prescribe medication, but we often work with people that are on prescription thyroid medication from their doctor. If you wish to know more about different kinds of synthetic thyroid medication, and how best to use them our Hypothyroid Treatment Program goes into detail about this subject. This guide helps you purchase and use over-the-counter desiccated thyroid.
Is natural desiccated thyroid a prescription?
Natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) also called thyroid extract is a dried powdered thyroid gland from an animal, usually from a pig (porcine thyroid) but it can also be from a cow (bovine thyroid). Since desiccated thyroid products contain a ratio of T4 to T3 similar to the human thyroid gland they are the ideal thyroid replacement therapy. Both prescription and over-the-counter desiccated thyroid products exist. If you do not have a prescription for thyroid an over-the-counter (non-prescription) desiccated thyroid supplement can be very helpful.
Are over-the-counter desiccated thyroid reliable?
It is important to know that many over-the-counter desiccated thyroid supplements on the market do not have any thyroid activity, as they have had the thyroid hormones removed, which is often not stated on the package. When choosing an over-the-counter desiccated thyroid product, it is very important that it contains the whole thyroid gland prepared freeze-dried so all of the naturally occurring factors including the thyroid hormones remain intact in the product. It is important that nothing is removed from the glandular material – that it is simply the whole gland. This guide presents over-the-counter desiccated thyroid products, that comply with this manufacturing process.
