Nature-throid does it work? Let us know your experiences.
Well I've been taking the Nature-throid for 1 week now! I do seem a little bit more tired than when I was on Armour otherwise no side effects, I have 140 of the Armour tabs left so I am going to go back to taking them as from tomorrow, as they have a much earlier use by date! That should take me to beginning of Jan 2010, when I will review the Nature-throid situation.
If you have tried or you are going to try Nature-throid I would love to hear how you get on with them, don't make my mistake and take too much. If you know of any other helpful treatments please let me know. Any advise would be welcome and I would love to hear of your experiences. Take care Denise

Just wanted to mention that vitamin B3 is very effective at lowering high cholesterol and doesn't have the side-effects of statins. Various forms of vitamin B3 are known by names including niacin, nicotinic acid, and niacinamide. Research has repeatedly demonstrated the cholesterol-lowering effects of these nutrients.
I'd really be wary of taking statins as Denise has already said. [URL=http://www.mercola.com]Dr. Mercola's site[/URL] has a lot of information about their downsides. If you get treated for your thyroid problems properly your cholesterol should return to normal anyway but in the meantime vitamin B3, a diet high omega-3 and omega6 fatty acids, and soluble fibre would be preferable to statins in my opinion.
Ah thats useful information Denise thanks! i will try the walnuts, I also have lots of omega 3 in my diet. My Nature-throid arrived very promptly this morning, so I will continue with the armour and then switch, as the expiry date like yours is jan2012! the armour expires next year. I asked my GP what the side effects were, and he said he wouldn't tell me because i would go back next week and tell him i had them all lol! But I did read that it can give you muscle pain and depression, and I am certainly not going there again! so I will start with the walnuts and see how i go. take care. Tina
Hi Denise! ok I will let you know if I try them b4 my armour runs out, I hope you won't mess your system up, by switching back to armour? will that be ok? Maff what do you think? can any harm be done by switching back and forth? anyway had to see my Gp today regarding blood test results, he assured me that my thyroid is functioning well and that the T3 levels are fine......that said he has now put me on statins because my colesterol is high, and because my BMI is normal, he wants me to take the statins for two months and have my bloods redone to see if the colesterol levels go down. as for my glucose levels being high(it is borderline diabetes) he wants to do the same with that redo the blood test in two months. anyway fingers crossed. I told him about my body temp being low, he seems to think its ok?? I must say since all that episode of the vertigo has gone I am feeling much better in my self, and not tired at all(hence writing this at 1am lol!) my blood pressure is not as low as it had been either, so mabe the fact that I am taking the extra bit of armour has definitely helped. Anyhow fingers crossed eh? take care. tina.
