Successful Hypothyroidism Treatment with Armour Thyroid

A friend of mine forwarded me this site as I don't have the internet at home and don't have much time to explore at work, I have been fighting my right to health for over two years!

Although I had almost every single symptom and a family history of hypothyroidism my doctors wouldn't treat me until I reached '10' [for TSH] on their stupid scale. I put on 3 stone, had symptoms too numerous to mention and thought I was going crazy! On the 2nd September 2008, I final reached this goal, then and only then did she Say "You will be glad to know we can treat you now." I was angry, disgusted and seething but took my T4 gladly at first, they made me very ill while I took them for seven months, until I'd really had enough of all the debilitating symptoms.

Still gaining weight and very few if any symptoms less, I obtained Armour off the internet, what wonderful stuff after just 15 days I can feel me coming back. How strange that the endocrinologist said I would have a placebo effect. I never felt well not even for one day on the other stuff.  What a fantastic placebo that makes my hair shine, gives me energy,makes my face spot free and most importantly brings a smile to my face. The only symptoms I have left are shortness of breath sometimes and occasional tiredness, it's great but my useless doctors, all 5 of them, say they will not test my bloods if I continue on this dangerous route. Only things dangerous I can see are staying on synthetic rubbish that does nothing but make you feel worse, and of course most dangerous of all, having such unhelpful doctors.

I am taking  a 1.5  Armour tablet per day, I feel wonderful and want to stay that way. It would be great if I could find a doctor to prescribe Armour for me rather than buying from the internet. If anyone can suggest such a doctor near Doncaster, England, that would be a great help, thanks.

  • Not heard from any one yet, but at least now I know why I can't find a Doctor to prescribe me Armour, it's more than politics. Doctors are actually being struck off if they prescribe this medicine. ItĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢s madness I can not express how angry I am!
    This medicine is the difference between feeling half dead and alive and happy for me, I am sure so many others could benefit from it.
    The latest setback is the release of guidelines from the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), stating that "thyroxine is the only treatment that should be given" for hypothyroidism.

    If there's any one out there that is doing well on T4 only I would love to know? Or any one like me who couldn't tolerate it and now feels great on Armour or something else?

  • IĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢m still feeling wonderful and want to stay that way, but finding a sympathetic doctor near Doncaster is proving almost impossible!

    Money, money, money, politics and hypocrisy are what IĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢m being met by.

    Seems to me itĂƒÂ¢Ă¢â€šÂ¬Ă¢â€žÂ¢s a very clever ploy by the NHS to get people going private.

    I would love to here about other peoples experiences and how do you find a Doctor with a little human kindness that can help us to fight for our rights to the best treatment for this disease and any other disease.

    Shame on the NHS and the system that allows patients to suffer needlessly!

    I'm off home soon be back Tuesday fingers crossed someone can offer me some hope, not going to let if worry me. Have Happy Easter I plan too!

  • Thank you, Only 2hrs 47 minutes to freedom, really looking forward to the weekend now I have at last got some energy. Have a Great Easter. Denise.

  • Hi Denise!

    My problems are mostly chemical sensitivity, most likely due to cadmium and nickel poisoning many years ago.

    I agree that the NHS is a political hot zone. Most of the doctors seem to spend more time looking over their shoulders checking on what their colleagues think than on treating patients. And what really frustrates me is that they really don't care if a health problem stops you from working. You still go to the bottom of the pile and I just don't understand that point of view.

    I'm really glad to hear that things are going so well for you.

  • Hi Ataraxy,

    Yes I will give him a call thank you, what do you suffer from?

    I'm feeling better daily, did gardening for hours last weekend, swam 40 lengths of the pool last night, not sure why it's working but it does, I checked the bathroom scales and I have dropped 8lbs and I climbed the 2 flights of stairs to my office without stopping once for breath this morning, just a bit scared that it's going to stop!

    I'm very angry about the politics that seem to be stopping NHS doctors prescribing what's best for us, I have written to my local MP and did get a reply from The House of Commons, but just that she will look in to it, not holding my breath.

    Thanks again Denise

  • Hi Denise!

    You could try my doctor, Dr Downing. His main clinic is in York so that's not too far from Doncaster and he also has a clinic in London if anyone else is interested. You can get his details from his web site. I can't say what he'll be able to do, but if you call, his staff will be able to help you out.

    Have you thought about using the internet at your local library? They would be able to help you set up an email account that you can use on line so then you would then have all that you probably need.

    And I have a lot of sympathy with the "if it's working, keep going" school of thought, though it would be better if you could get some good advice.

  • Almost home time, so I have a little more time to respond. I am willing to try anything, can not find what Else is talking about on the link and sorry I don't speak German.
    Just to clarify I have eaten a Mediterranean diet for most of my life which includes lots of fish, olive oil and all good stuff, but I inherited this disease, no way I could stop myself from getting it, although I did get it later in life than some of my other family members, which may be due to my diet and life style.

  • Dear Else
    My surname is my married name and is of French Arabic origin, I couldn't make up such a name, also Matthew posted my blog , I don't have internet at home and don't have time for this at work, may be I should get it again,(my son took the computer with him when he moved out to live with his girlfriend) I had nothing to gain just sharing my experience and asking for help finding a Doctor to regulate my thyroid condition so I know I'm taking the right dose. I do feel wonderful, after more than two years of Hell I feel me coming back, I went from being the life an sole of the party to the lost,miserable thing in the corner and felt like I was going mad!
    Don't knock something if you've not tried it, I works for me, I'm not 100% yet but I'm getting there, I've 3 stone to loose and lots more to learn, but I am not one to sit back and be a good girl and do as arrogant, unsympathetic doctors suggest!

    P.S. It is really hard for anyone to understand how debilitating this illness can be until they have experienced it personally, do you have it?

  • Else,

    Thank you for your comment but please try to be more polite to other users of the site.

    In this case it was actually me that asked Denise's permission to post this blog under her name after she emailed me privately (so there is definately no advertising going on!).

    Many people have experienced the same as Denise - poor treatment for hypothyroidism by their doctor, poor response to thyroxine (T4), and then when they try Armour thyroid or similar rpoducts they rapidly feel better. Feeling better in 15 days is not uncommon at all when you get the right form of hormone replacement for you.

    I believe Armour thyroid is a pig thyroid extract and it is true that their may be slight variations in hormonal content but the manufacturing process limits this to a minimum. The fact is many people have been helped by this approach and I thought Denise's experience would be inspirational to others who are suffering from untreated hypothyroidism.

  • Hi Denise,

    I don't know if you are telling the truth. But stop advertising products, please, if you are doing. I don't even believe your name. "Great Results in 15 days!" Well... what should I say. I've seen enough entries of this kind. Don't tell me how hard or cold I am. I've already heard it many times when I had to get rid of people who wanted to have a cheap place for their advertisement in my students newspaper.
    If you really have thyroid problems (I don't believe that there is a TSH 10, but you could possibly have a different scale in the USA), I would advise you to try TCM acupressure. I doesn't cost you a single cent. If you can read a German text, I'll advise you to try this, if your period is still there:
    http://www.china-guide.de/china/tCM-Akupressur/gyn_ae_kologie/Menstruation.html
    And this one if it doesn't come anymore:
    http://www.china-guide.de/china/tCM-Akupressur/gyn_ae_kologie/Amenorrh_oe_e.html
    This one if you're older, 45 or 55 for example:
    http://www.china-guide.de/china/tCM-Akupressur/gyn_ae_kologie/Klimakterium.html

    Write back an I'll explain it in English if you can't read it. This methody could regulate the thyroid by using the mutual interference of the female and the thyroid hormones. I can't promise that it helped, but I know that it does from experience. No, this is no advertisement!

    Then I'm asking: What is Armour Thyroid? Is it made from the thyroid of an animal? Than it is dangerous to take it. You can't regulate the amount of thyroid and stored hormones in it you are taking. And if the product is natural, there can be more hormones in it one time and less another time. So you could accidentally take too much. A tip: if you want something natural, you could to get more iodine. Eating fish is the safest version of doing this.
