Below: You can take it, but reviewing the literature, it prob will not bee effective for wt loss. Here is the best information I found on the Internet: The Bottom Line – Does ACE Work? So, we’re here to tell you just the facts. After taking a comprehensive look at ACE, we reached a conclusion. There are some positives, like the length of time the company has been in business and we noticed a few favorable comments, but we have reservations recommending it because of the lack of scientific research supporting weight-loss. Plus, we have concerns about the FDA judgments and the fact that the formula contains raspberry ketones, often included in “fad” supplements with no concrete clinical backing ...Read more

Not the best: All of the major professional societies for thyroid specialists, the endocrine society, the american thyroid association, and the american association of clinical endocrinologists have issued formal statements indicating that levothyroxine is the best choice for most patients. Both armour and thyrolar (thyroxine and liothyronine) provide too much T3 relative to t4, making it very difficult to keep tsh, free T4 & T3 normal. ...Read more

Will diet pills affect my Synthroid (thyroxine) medication. I'm looking into the natural garcinia pill. But i take Synthroid (thyroxine) for thyroid.
Synthroid (thyroxine) vs NDT: Synthroid (thyroxine) is not for everyone. Many feel much better with NDT (natural desiccated thyroid)... Armour, Westhroid, NatureThroid. I specialize in this and help people transition from synthetic to natural. A good book to read is "Stop the Thyroid Madness, II" of which I authored Chapter 3.

I take Synthroid (thyroxine) every morning for hypothyroidism. I normally have a soy protein drink every morning. Can the soy interfere with my synthroid (thyroxine)?
Yes it may interfere: Almost everything interferes with absorption of thyroid. If you have been drinking the soy drink with the thyroid, but your doctor thinks the levels look good then don't change what you are doing. However, if you are just beginning synthroid (thyroxine) therapy, wait about 1&1/2 hours after taking the synthroid (thyroxine) before drinking the soy drink. ...Read more
I am on 125 mcg of Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism. What weight loss supplement program is ok to take while on Synthroid (thyroxine) - Plexus, Cellucor?
Levothyroxine.: Levothyroxine, generic form of synthroid, has many advantages over armour thyroid. The armour product has significant batch to batch variation and has T3 (liothyronine) in it. Since the T3 (liothyronine) portion of armour has a very quick onset and short duration, it can wreak havoc with the ability to effectively treat hypothyroidism. Until there is a long-acting form of T3 (liothyronine) available, stick to levothyroxine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
