Is anyone taking Nature Throid for tsh suppression for thyroid cancer. Thyroidectomy 1 year ago with RAI. Cant seem to get meds adjusted . when tsh gets close to where I need it to be have too many hyperthyroid symptoms? Has anyone switched from Naturethroid to synthroid. I am afraid not to have the T3. Also I have not been right since my surgery. Worst depression and anxiety I ever had in my life as well as chronic fatigue. Would appreciate anybody's input. Thank you.
Not recommended as these types of products are not consistent and TSH management is part of cancer treatment. Also dessicated thyroid may contain pig thyroglobulin which could interfere with testing of your thyroglobulin tumor markers.
In some patients, the addition of cytomel (T3) may help these symptoms.
