How long is it supposed to it take for nutri adrenal extra tablets to work?

Hormone replacement: Its never a good idea to take a hormone as a supplement unless there is a deficiency. Even in some hormone deficiencies, the drawbacks to replacement outweigh the benefits. While there is some limited evidence that dhea replacement can help specific groups (people with addison's disease for example), adrenal supplements do not have proof that they work at all. ...Read more

Does it take longer for Synthroid (thyroxine) to work vs. Levothyroid?

Not really: Absorption of each thyroid preparation is a little different, and you should not switch brands, if possible. But both synthroid (thyroxine) and Levothroid are long acting hormones, with a half-life of 1 week. I doubt you would notice a difference with regards to onset of action, for example if you were starting to take them for hypothyroidism. ...Read more

What are the best vitamin d supplements? How much should one take?

What are the best vitamin d supplements? How much should one take?

Any brand will do: Counter to what a salesperson might tell you, there's not much money to be made selling vitamin D. As long as the label has a USP DSVP symbol on it, you're pretty assured of its quality. So don't buy fancy brands/names - just make sure it's D3, not D2. For most, 1,000-2,000units each day should be fine. Take enough to bring your 25OH vitamin D above 30ng/mL. Don't check 1,25 diOH vitamin D. ...Read more

How long does it take for levothyroxine to start working? Espacially about weight gain :(

Hypothyroidism: Given it's long half-life, we re-check your TSH about 6-8wks after you start Levothyroxine or change your dose. There are many symptoms to hypothyroidism (that's why you're taking Levothyroxine, right?), some of which take longer to resolve than others, but most within that 6-8wk period of time, if you're taking right dose for you. But weight won't magically melt off w/o exercising & eating health ...Read more
