Thyronorm Is Taken For Hypothyroid Or Hyperthyroid
Usually not: Usually, a person with hyperthyroidism has too much thyroid hormone in her body. One would take Synthroid (thyroxine) (synthetic hormone) to make up for a lack of enough thyroid hormone due to HYPOthyroidism. A person with HYPOthyroidism who becomes hyperthyroid due to taking too high of a dose of Synthroid (thyroxine) might be asked to take Synthroid (thyroxine) (at a lower dose) even though she is temporarily hyperthyroid. ...Read more

Im taking synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism and also taking a liquid iodine supplement. Is this ok? what is more effective? will my thyroid get better?
Get Iodine Level: There are still areas in Brazil with iodine deficiency. If you are iodine deficient and have an enlarging thyroid (goiter) and an underactive thyroid the iodine will likely be helpful and your Synthroid (thyroxine) dose may go down (do not take them at the same time). If you are not iodine deficient depending on the thyroid problem, iodine may actually worsen thyroid function. Get your iodine level checked. ...Read more
Doctor recommended Armour Thyroid for borderline TSH saying it's better than synthroid, (thyroxine) why?
Can you stop taking Synthroid (thyroxine) after (5-6)years of taking it? Borderline -low TSH is why it was prescribed. Dose .050mcg.
Synthroid (thyroxine): You must mean a borderline high TSH for an underactive thyroid. Anyhow, the thyroid does not revert back to its normal level on its own, it ages with us and needs frequent monitoring, i would suggest not to stop it, but this is something you need to discuss with your doctor who knows you best. ...Read more

I have been taking .05 MG levothyroxine for a year now to treat an enlarged thyroid. Dr.recommended switching to tirosint. What is the difference?
Brand vs Generic: Are you seeing an endocrinologist? The diff between levothyroxine (LT4) & Tirosint is the name. LT4 is the chemical name of the main thyroid hormone. Tirosint is a brand of Lt4. If poss people should stay on the same brand of LT4. There is a bigger question. Why are you on it? For thyroid dz I agree. For an enlarged thyroid some get some dec in thyroid size with LT4, but risks outweigh benefits. ...Read more

Hypothyroidism: Imagine it this way. Tsh is a measure of how much your body is 'calling out' for thyroid hormone. If low, your body is saying it has more than enough circulating thyroid hormone (though there are some exceptions to this) a high TSH can be thought of as your body asking for more thyroid. The higher the tsh, the more your body may be in need of thyroid hormone. (there are exceptions). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
