Specializes in Endocrinology

Thyroid Supplements: There is not evidence that herbal or nutritional remedies can help hypothyroidism. For the vast majority of individuals levothyroxine supplies the body with adequate replacement of the identical hormone which the body produces. Most (but not all) make T3 (liothyronine) naturally from the T4 in a well regulated pattern. See your physician if you feel symptomatic despite therapy. Doses may need adjustment.
