Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again. ...Read more

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

Can you tell me exactly when is the best time to take my thyroid medicines and my vitamins?

Can you tell me exactly when is the best time to take my thyroid medicines and my vitamins?

Ask your doctor: This is a very important question to ask your doctor, because different docs have slightly different ideas on this. Ideally, thyroid hormone should be taken on an empty stomach - at least 2 hours after and 1 hour before eating, and at least 1-2 hours away from any source of iron or calcium. That can be hard and cause ppl to miss pills. Some docs are more flexible on these guidelines than others. ...Read more
