Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


Armour is natural T3/T4, Levoxyl and Synthroid are synthetic T4 only. All are used to treat hypo-T. Some people do fine on the synthetics, but I think more do better on the natural.
I prefer the natural since it has not only the T3 and T4, but all the T's our body would naturally produce when the thyroid was working properly.
There are 3 natural meds I know of, Armour, Westhroid and Nature-Throid, the difference is the fillers and binders, Nature-Throid has hypoallergenic fillers.
