Hypothyroidism Treatment

There is NO one size fits all approach to hypothyroidism treatment. We are each individual. Levothyroxine (T4 only) drugs such as the brand Synthroid are the drug of choice in mainstream medicine. Some people do great on them, but not all. Many of us do better on a combination of T4 and T3 medications. If you are not doing well on your thyroid medication, learn about the options. In addition to thyroid medication, it is important to test and treat issues with adrenal function, iron, sex hormones, food sensitivities, blood sugar, heavy metal toxicity, infection (bacteria, virus, and parasite), and nutrient deficiencies including D3, B12, magnesium, zinc, iron, iodine and selenium.
