New Call for More Thyroid Options

An interesting article by Sumathi Reddy in The Wall Street Journal, August 5, 2013, which quotes a number of well known thyroid experts and discusses how the standard thyroid therapy does not work for everyone.

Grass roots patient-activist organizations with names like ThyroidChange and Thyroid Patient Advocacy, and the doctor-founded National Academy of Hypothyroidism, say that the current screening test for hypothyroidism leaves out some symptomatic patients and that the main medication used to treat patients, doesn’t always alleviate many symptoms.

They are calling for doctors to be open to other therapies, including a combination of synthetic hormones and the use of natural, animal-based ones.
