OTC Thyroid Supplements
I don't want ads...I just want an honest answer!!! I have read that many people are not being diagnosed with hypothyroidism because the guidelines for the lab results really aren't correct. Many people including myself are being told that their results are "within normal limits" although as in my case they are at the low end. I have had all the major symptoms and all I want to know is what OTC supplement is there (if any) that I can take to help with hypothyroid?

Although there are supplements that may help you feel somewhat better, perhaps temporarily, hormone replacement is the only thing that is going to make you feel well.  There are no OTC supplements that contain measurable thyroid hormones.

What about finding a doctor who understands thyroid, the limitations of the ranges and will pay attention to your symptoms?  If you interview prospective doctors over the phone, you can really increase your odds of getting a good one...

I asked my endo once about OTC for Thyroid, he said "there are not any, those that claim will help thyroid function are just out to make a buck".
