Does taking cytomel or Synthroid (thyroxine) to help lose weight?

Thyroid weight loss: Thyroid hormones should never be used for weight loss. They may increase your metabolic rate, but will also increase appetite. And there is a large potential for side effects.

I'm taking synthroid (thyroxine) 25 mg can I take sabba ace diet supp.

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

Anyone taken armour, thyrolar (thyroxine and liothyronine)?

Anyone taken armour, thyrolar (thyroxine and liothyronine)?

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.

In the meantime, try to get 8 hours of sleep at night and eat healthy foods to help your body feel better. ...Read more

Synthroid (thyroxine) vs NDT: Synthroid (thyroxine) is not for everyone. Many feel much better with NDT (natural desiccated thyroid)... Armour, Westhroid, NatureThroid.

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

Synthroid (thyroxine) or Armour Thyroid for hypothyriodism?

Synthroid (thyroxine) or Armour Thyroid for  hypothyriodism?

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 more
