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!

Unfortunately, routine medical examinations and blood tests are woefully inadequate when it comes to detecting thyroid problems. Standard thyroid blood tests typically only look at levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and thyroxine (T4). T4 is actually the inactive form of thyroid hormone which has little affect on the cells. The active form known as T3 is rarely...
