Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I just recently read on a website that the fillings in your teeth (metal fillings) can extract the selenium you are taking and that site recommended that for those who have fillings to take up to 600 mgs of selenium.

Personally I'm having a dilly of a time finding a doc who will do the right tests (FT3 and FT4) and prescribe the right amount of T4 and T3 so I'm only on Synthroid right now. I've upped my selenium from 200 per day to 400 per day given that info about fillings 2 weeks ago and I'm waiting to see if it will help me any. Will post in a few weeks for update. (that is if I remember given my thyoird memory :eek: )
