What symptoms signal thyroid trouble? The 25-page downloadable Guide to Thyroid Hormones has critical info on testing, treatment, and side effects. © 2015

Product Description

What are the symptoms of an underactive thyroid gland? How would you know if it were pumping out too much thyroid hormone?

Thyroid problems appear to more common now than in decades past, though the causes are uncertain. This guide describes the tests doctors use to determine whether thyroid function is out of balance and discusses the controversy behind the changing criteria. Although many physicians rely on just one test, the TSH, you will learn of others that can be very helpful in making the diagnosis and tracking progress.

Check the list of drugs that may affect thyroid function or alter test results, as well as those that may interact badly with thyroid hormone. Find out how underactive thyroid glands are usually treated, and what some of the alternatives may be.

Should you be using synthetic or natural medications? Is T4 alone adequate, or might you benefit from the addition of T3? Find out how thyroid imbalance may affect pregnancy, bone density and high cholesterol.

Learn about the autoimmune conditions that result in Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease. What should you know about diet and dietary supplements?

Hyperactive thyroid glands also need treatment. The guide discusses a range of options doctors use in diagnosing and treating this condition. It also considers the treatment of thyroid problems in either children or older adults.

    I have hypothyroid & Hyperparathyroid problems. I take 50 mg Synthroid one day & 75 mg the next day! Do many people have both?

  3. No good synthroid

    Patty W
    Sauk Centre Mn.

    I to am on synthroid because I had my thyroid removed. I also keep telling my doctor that my hands are swollen I have ridges on my nails, my muscles and joints hurt and at times my anxiety is high. They just shrug it off because my numbers are fine. What doctor listens. I feel like I’m going insane.

    I have been on 150 mcg of Synthroid but the MD said the dosage was too high after I started to apply Essential oils. I have never been happy with Synthroid, it really does not work that well on me. Still tired and still have weight issues. My MD said that Cytomel was not on the Medicaid approved list. Now I am off Medicaid because I am $129 over SSI.
    I also became carbohydrate sensative and pre diabetic
    I have several other medical problems as well. In 2008 I was diagnosed with CLL and in 2011 with degenerative bone disease. A few years back I was told I have arthritis and osteopenia. The precursor to osteoporosis and also have asthma and chronic bronchitis. I feel like Ian old car running out of warranty. Any suggestions?

    Hi, My name is Angel. My thyroid has been removed, and I take 300 mcg of Levothyroxine daily. I just heard about this pig thyroid. I wonder if it will help me lose weight because the one take now hasn’t let me lose any. I’m going to talk to my doctor about it. And do a little more research on it.

  6. Thyroid

    Patricia Kelley Smith

    I have had serious trouble with hypothyroidism since I was barely a teen. I do much better on Synthroid than the generic although the insurance company is not happy about this. But even on Synthroid I still experience hair fallout, dry skin, and being very tired. My Dr. said my last test was on the low end of normal but even with my symptoms did not change my dosage. I have never been offered Armour.

    One Dr. in my teens took me off thyroid medicine entirely leading me to become depressed as well as experiencing the above mentioned symptoms. I don’t believe many Drs. take thyroid problems seriously enough!

  7. Synthroid not enough

    Evansville, In

    I have been on Synthroid .75mcg for years and always complaining to my doctor about how tired I am. Doctor always tells me my lab is normal that it is probably my diet. How do I get them to check T-3?

  8. Barbara G.

    I am on Synthroid and have been for years. I was just changed from .50 mcg to .88mcg . I started taking my med at night several months ago, and it has made a huge difference in my energy and sleeping pattern. I rest much more soundly, and I can actually get out of bed in the morning with energy to burn.

    Selena…I suggest taking Cytomel with your Synthroid one is for the T3 and the other for the T4 . I have no
    thyroid and had a lot of trouble being regulated on 75 to 88…once I started the Cytomel I felt so much better..no more dry skin my hair is growing…ask your doctor…if he says no find another doctor.

  10. Thyroid Issues


    I take ARMOR 60mg daily and it works pretty good for me, not having sleep issues but i am so tired and sluggish. I was on Synthroid for a few years and i had no results i was sick all the time and finally my doctor switched me and i came back to life again. it’s been several years now and i don’t feel sick just sluggish and my nail and toe cuticles and skin is so dry and ugly i can’t find anything that really helps. my doctor says drink water but thats not working either.

  11. Does Armour Thyroid have the same results?


    I wonder if the same results are true with Armour (natural pork hormone)? I have a terrible time sleeping and would love to know if taking Armour at night might help?

  12. I am lost

    Columbia, SC

    I tried Armour once. I started on 90 mg. Then that had me really sleepy so I was placed on 120 mg. That changed things a little but I was still asleep, and my doctor says “You are not doing well with the Armour so let’s go back to Synthroid of 50 mg”. I was so mad that they wouldn’t go to another dose instead of giving up. So now I am sluggish, have heart palpitations and am weak, sore, swollen, and depressed. I need a doctor who will be patient with me and my meds. Also, I was told I have a pork allergy and needed to know if the Armour would be an issue with the pork allergy.

  13. Synthroid time!!!

    I’m on Synthroid medicine to treat my thyroid. I was thrilled to read the interesting and informative new article, about what time of the day works best!!! Wow! Nice. I will start immediately taking my Synthesis in the later evening. I have been feeling crappy as well every morning, not feeling like my self, sluggish, etc. I’m dying to see if things improve!!! I let you know. Thanks so much for this article… Marilyn, Simi Valley , CA.
