I started from day 1 on Armour and gradually moved up in doses. Then last month I found out Armour uses cornstarch as a binder, nothing wrong with that unless you are allergic to corn like I am. I switched to Naturethroid which is hypoallergenic and since have not had as much nasal congestion, like I get from corn. That said there are other natural thyroid replacements like Westroid and Bio-throid. The good thing about these natural replacements is besides getting T3 & T4 together you also get T1, T2 and calcintone (sp?) The calcintone helps you to utilize calcium and research is now beginning to show T2 is important with metabolism. Bodybuilders use T2 as a weight loss product.
