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.

  1. Go with your gut!


    I live in Germany. I have Hashimoto’s and was placed on Synthroid initially. She would pat my hand and say, “Dr. Smith, you’re just getting older and this happens to many people”. After 6 months feeling the same and just not myself I found a new doctor. A functional doctor who discovered I was not converting my T4 to T3. We tried Armor and NaturesThyroid but still was not kicking in. I went on a synthetic medication that had higher amounts of T3 and within a day felt so much better. If your still not feeling yourself, I suggest finding a doctor that test T4, T3, THS, R3, and antibodies. Most doctors only test TSH and some T4 and T3 BUT it is the reverse T3 that is actually the key to feeling better. We are all different and the best advice is to keep searching until you feel yourself again. We know when something is not right inside us. We feel it, go with your gut and if you have to, find a new doctor.

  2. Compounded Thyroid Medication made all the difference in the world for me

    I have Hashimoto’s, I have tried Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Nature thyroid, Armour thyroid and all of them made me sicker.
    I recently started using a compounded thyroid med: USP Thyroid 15 MG (compounded) QD (once a day)
    FREQ: QD (once a day)
    Notes for Patient: Take one first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Then increase to 2 pills after 1-2 weeks.

    And for the first time in my life I actually feel better and a no negative symptoms after experiencing negative issues for over 11 years.

    I understand the importance of staying away from gluten as well.

    I also understand a lot of Thyroid Meds and other meds contain gluten or other fillers I am sensitive to so some of those meds like my progesterone supplement must also be compounded.

    Just an FYI in case this helps anyone too to know.


  3. Thyroid medication


    I had Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (sp?) and my hair was falling out about 15 or so years ago. My doctor proscribed
    Levothyroxine 50MCG, and it worked perfectly. I take it in the middle of the night when I awake to use the rest room, and my doctor said my thyroid is at a very good level.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.
