In addition to the skin, other organs of excretion include the gastrointestinal system, the kidneys, and the lungs. ...Read more

Dr. Christine northrup mentions that women in perimenopause benefit from thyroid treatment regardless of test results, why do others disagree?

And you will feel more and more awful from hypothyroidism the longer you stay off thyroid hormone. It actually seems to help the i131 work better by starting back right away, even the same day after you get the radio-iodide treatment. ...Read more
