Which Type of Thyroid Treatment Is Best?

Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., internist and author of From Fatigued to Fantastic!, researches treatments for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia.

In this article he argues that different people do better with different types of thyroid hormone, and you can tell which is best by what feels best to you. He advocates the addition of T3 or Armour (desiccated) thyroid for patients who do not respond to T4 alone. He also argues that a person may have low thyroid despite normal blood tests – it is conservatively estimated that over 50% of people who need thyroid hormone have normal blood tests.
