Neither: The term "bioidentical" is a marketing tool, used to make people believe that these products are somehow better or safer than other forms of hormones. There is no good evidence that this is true. Most topical creams are not regulated by the fda, and so their effectiveness is mostly unknown. Estrogen is the much more effective hormone for treating menopausal symptoms than progesterone. ...Read more

My TSH levels are 4.67.My prenatal vitamins don't have iodine.Can I take iodine supplements along with levothyroxine?or levothyroxine is sufficient?
Not iodine deficient: Hi. No one in America is iodine deficient. If you're hypothyroid, it's because of autoimmune destruction of the gland (assuming you haven't had thyroid surgery). Giving more iodine when you're already replete will not help. Is that TSH on l-thyroxine? You need a dose increase if it is. Take your l-thyroxine, and don't worry about the iodine.
