Sky Eagle,
How do you interpret Toft's statement --
"Of course, we are perhaps naive in thinking that patients with autoimmune thyroid disease who continue to complain of non-specific symptoms despite restoration to normal of TSH and T4 concentrations can be improved by tinkering with the dose and form of thyroid hormone used for treatment. It is just possible that these symptoms arise from the chronic inflammatory basis of the underlying thyroid disease, but that story is largely unwritten."

??? Is he saying nobody has done research to know whether replacement of either or both T4 and T3 helps Hashi's? (Yikes. I feel doomed... )
