Dr. Mehmet Oz Got It Right About Thyroid Disease on ABC's Good Morning America

By March 15, 2010

Follow me on:

It's no secret that in the past, I've been critical of Dr. Mehmet Oz's coverage of thyroid disease. Back before he had his own show, Dr. Oz was a regular on Oprah, including those programs where Oprah Winfrey was talking about her thyroid problem. First she had a problem, then she didn't. She said she was cured by taking a vacation and drinking soy milk, then she said it came back and got worse. Then she said she had autoimmune thyroid problems, then she said she was being treated. Then she said she was cured, but went back on that and said she wasn't cured, but had decided to refuse thyroid treatment and instead take bioidentical estrogen and progesterone for her hormonal problems. As Oprah dithered, and couldn't come to terms with her own thyroid issues, she left many women more confused than ever, especially as they watched Oprah exhibit ever-worsening potential signs of thyroid problems, including continued weight gain, puffiness in her face and around her eyes, and seeming enlargement of her neck.

Meanwhile, there was Dr. Oz, trying to get some rational thyroid info to Oprah's audience, but also standing by while Oprah unwittingly misled the public into believing that thyroid disease was extremely rare but treatable with chakra balancing, soy milk, self-care, and/or reproductive hormones. He even rather glibly referred to Oprah's thyroid problem -- which apparently was causing her gland function to fluctuate -- as a "frat party in [her] thyroid." All in all, my conclusion was that Dr. Oz had left behind a shaky legacy when it came to thyroid education.

Now, Dr. Oz has his his own daytime show, The Dr. Oz Show, and he's also increasingly seem on other programs talking about health issues. So when I heard Good Morning America's host Robin Roberts start into a segment on thyroid disease this morning, and she said Dr. Oz would be her guest, I thought, "Oh no, here we go again!!"

So I was happily surprised -- and frankly, even shocked -- when Dr. Oz went on to offer patient-oriented information about thyroid disease, and he made a major departure from the official "easy to diagnose, easy to treat" party line of most of mainstream medicine, and in particular, the endocrinology community.

So, since I'm quick to dish out the criticism when I think someone has done a disservice to thyroid patients, I also feel that I need to be just as quick to hand out well-deserved praise when someone has done something to help the cause of thyroid patients and thyroid disease. So I would like to applaud Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has clearly seen the light when it comes to thyroid disease, AND who was willing to risk the wrath of the endocrinology establishment.

Why do I say he's "seen the light?" Here are a few of the best of Dr. Oz's comments from his appearance:

"It's pretty simple to treat...you can take thyroid hormones. Synthroid is called synthetic thyroid hormone -- that's why the word Synthroid came to use. Very effective. You can also take Thyroid Armour. I mention those two options, because a lot of women are on Synthroid hormone -- we mentioned 27 million people have the problem, and half of them know it, and are on hormone replacement therapy. The big catch, unfortunately, is that if you're on Synthroid and it's not working for you, then we may have to switch you to the other version, the naturally occurring pork version of thyroid hormone."
"When we tell you your thyroid hormone is normal, we're really misleading you. Because what we really need to do is find out if you have any of the symptoms I mentioned. If you've got symptoms, even if the blood tests come back looking like you're borderline okay, we still might want to treat you more aggressively. It's a very important point to make. Unlike other blood tests, it's a matter of symptom management, not about getting the right blood tests."
"One of the reasons Vitamin D is so important is it reduces autoimmune responses. That's probably the number one reason we have inadequate thyroid hormone in America. I wanted to get that out there because if you think about one thing you should do in your life to avoid becoming one of the 27 million American women who have thyroid problems, take vitamin D."
You can watch the entire segment online at ABC's Good Morning America website.

I also liked his "pencil test." To illustrate the idea that loss of the outer edge of the eyebrow can be a thyroid symptom, he said to line up a pencil vertically with the outer edge of your mouth. You should have some eyebrow that extends beyond the pencil. If not, said Oz, "it's either hypothyroidism, or overzealous tweezing."

Dr. Oz did have a few moments where I feel he could have done better. He did repeat one of the popular myths -- saying that hypothyroidism is "pretty simple to treat." That is, of course, not true for many thyroid patients. And he was discussing the medications somewhat awkwardly -- referring to "Synthroid hormone" instead of levothyroxine, or synthetic thyroid hormone, and referring to "thyroid Armour" instead of "Armour Thyroid" or natural thyroid drugs. And in his list of women's thyroid symptoms, while he touched on fatigue, depression, weight gain, and hair loss, he did not mention any of the common hormonal symptoms, such as low sex drive, irregular periods, infertility, miscarriage, or breastfeeding problems, among others.

But those really are minor issues, especially given the fact that a nationally-known doctor went on national network television, and dared to tell America that:

  1. Doctors may need to switch patients who take Synthroid and don't feel well to natural thyroid drugs like Armour Thyroid.
  2. With thyroid disease, symptoms may be equally or even more important than blood tests in diagnosis and treatment.
I hope thyroid patients realize what a huge risk Dr. Oz has taken in saying this on Good Morning America. Because the various die-hard, Synthroid-funded thyroid organizations like the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and the American Thyroid Association (ATA) get frantically up in arms if anyone -- much less someone with the visibility of Dr. Oz -- talks about hypothyroidism on television and departs from their strict party line and dogma.

And what is official party line? To paraphrase: "Hypothyroidism is easy to diagnose and easy to treat. TSH tests tell everything, and subclinical/borderline hypothyroidism requires monitoring, but not treatment, as it causes no symptoms. For overt hypothyroidism -- and that means a TSH over 10 -- the only safe and effective treatment is levothyroxine (i.e., Synthroid.) Natural desiccated thyroid is obsolete/old-fashioned/off-the-market, and should never be used."

Doctors who have challenged the thyroid party line have often found themselves viciously targeted by individuals and organizations opposed to integrative or complementary medicine, unfairly investigated or even frivolously charged by state medical boards, and even found themselves the targets of media campaigns sponsored by groups like the AACE. (One example is described at CBS News website.)

Will Dr. Oz end up on the conventional thyroid world's "hit list?" It's hard to say, but we'll be watching closely to see if what he's said generates a response from endocrinology's old guard.

More on Thyroid From Doctor Oz

Please Thank Dr. Oz

I believe that we should speak out when we're unhappy, but I also believe that we owe it to the doctors who get it right to thank them, and let them know we're behind them. So, thank you Dr. Mehmet Oz.

And to my fellow thyroid patients, why not take a moment to let Dr. Oz know that you think he got it right about thyroid disease!

Thankyou, Mary. I knew Dr. Oz would “come through” for us on the proper diagnosing and treatment of hypothyroidism. This might just impact the healthcare crisis we are facing in this country in more ways than we can imagine. Thank God he is driving home VitaminD3 as a key player in overall health. This is going to be a much better decade after all! And thankyou for everything YOU do for us! Sincerely, Jan Masleid, Chicago, IL

Mary,

I think it is important for patients who have symptoms from abnormal thyroid function to have their medical doctor test for Vitamin D deficiency.

I was lucky that my doctor tested for levels of Vitamin D and my test results concluded severely low levels. He then prescribed a pharmaceutical grade Vitamin D only available with a prescription. It is an eight weeks regimen. That being said over the counter Vitamin D would not have corrected my levels.

Talk to your doctor to see if testing your Vitamin D levels is
right for you. It can make a huge difference in your over all wellbeing.

There are many who feel that the “Pharmaceutical grade” vitamin D (aka ergocalciferol or D2) is less effective than cholecalciferol or D3 that you can get OTC. The best source of info on vitamin D that I have found is http://www.vitamindcouncil.com.

It’s worse being a man with thyroid issues. Doctors never want to look at you. It took me three times to just get a TSH test. The first time I asked my doctor said “it’s not a MALE problem.” Even though I told him everyone on my paternal side has thyroid problems.

My neck has constricted and makes for some uncomfortable breathing sometimes. A nurse practitioner in urgent care immediately suggested it was thyroid and ran another TSH, my third, but my doctor refused to listen to her. Instead set my up for pulmonary test saying that he’ll send me to an ENT if no results come up for pulmonary.

I’ve told him several times that I want to see an endo but he refuses saying my TSH is normal. The nurse practitioner has suggested ultrasound for my thyroid but he hasn’t responded.

The process is excruciatingly long to get in to any of these specialists being in the San Francisco Universal Health Care system. I’ve been waiting 8 months just for the pulmonary test.

Anyway, my point is, it’s hard enough for women to get diagnosed, it’s virtually impossible with a sexist mentality in a doctor. I REALLY wish Dr. Oz would have a least said PEOPLE and not just women.

Vent out.

Maybe now that Dr. Oz has his own TV show and is doing guest appearances like this one, he is nolonger under anyone’s thumb financially and is able to afford to speak out more. He may also have alot more time than regular medical practicioners to explore the latest research. Hopefully, this epiphany on the part of the good Doctor is real and not just a case of catering to his audience.

my hypothyroidism was treated w/ Synthoid for years and under control and approx 15 years later, it went off the scales…its taken a 2nd doctor and 2 years to get TSH
with in the range of ‘being normal’……its been a hard 2 years finding the right dosages….actually i am taking natu-thyroid and levothyroxine combination….watching the Vit D…..this has finally seemed to be what is working for me…..
I agree w/ the eyebrow symptom, and several of the others….
hypothyroidism not controlled can certainly lead to other
complications….
Dr OZ should have Mary Shomon on his show…..

Hi Ann, interested to know how much levo you take with your Nat. thyroid? I have never felt well on levo but did not do well on Armour either. Thanks

Jim, in Dr. Oz’s defense, the segment was about “thyroid problems in women.” But I hear you — it can be esp. hard for men to get thyroid problems taken seriously.

(10) Lisa says:

When I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer 3yrs. ago, I was told that my vitamin D levels were very low also. I do believe this is a very important vitamin and a lot of us are not getting enough of it. Thank You Dr Oz for making thyroid disease more known to other’s out there and realizing its not an easy disease to treat. I had been undiagnosed for many years with Hashimoto’s by many doctors and it wasn’t discovered until it became cancer. Now we need more doctors to realize that it’s not “all in our heads” and that they need to treat us for symptoms more than the blood test results. Thank You Mary for all your hard work too!

It’s amazing that something so simple as Vitamin D can be effective. We always tend to over analyze and complicate situations. I am from Australia and thankfully we have good (not perfect) healthcare as our public hospitals are free and the Doctors either bulk bill or we can claim most of our visit back but I like this site and find it informative and I am sick of not feeling great at times and knowing it’s because of my thyroid, I take thyroxine, I haven’t heard of the one’s you mention on this site.

Fascinating what you wrote about AACE and ATA. I wonder if these bodies are predominantly male?

As for vitamin D we should all get out in the sun more, but whoops we’re not allowed to by dermatologists!

Wow. I don’t want to get more off-topic than this already is (since the topic is Dr. Oz on thyroid function), but calling someone an illiterate writer when you don’t use spell check or proper punctuation just makes me giggle. That said, I’m thrilled that Dr. Oz is pointing out symptom based treatment as a valid method of medical care.

catherine–thanks for speaking out——I loved all you had to say. I hate the O shows when they
GIVE stuff away when there are so many of us that would like to have some of the stuff and badly
NEED the stuff but could never afford to got to the show. I read your letter because of the thyroid issue AND I thank you again

(16) Lesley says:

OK, I thanked him.

and thank you for the info. about him.

My holistic MD, who comes originally from a traditional practice, has focused on symptoms.

fyi – I have very much handled the problem through acupuncture and herbs. I wouldn’t want to get on any kind of medication, either Synthoid or Armour b/c there is so much hit and miss to it and there are side effects. The thing about the acupuncture and herbs is that if you have someone who is really good, the treatment is totally personalized to my particular situation EVERY TIME I go. I’ve done this for a long time – no side effects! Unbelievable.

No Mention of Graves Disease, It doesn’t seem fair that when thyroid issues are discussed only the hypo side is mentioned. what about us on the other side of the spectrum?

(19) Casie says:

I am SO glad to hear that Dr.Oz made some of these HUGE statements (although wish he touched on a few of the other symptoms too! Many people dont realize HOW MUCH the thyroid involves!)

I recently just switched to a compounded version of natural thyroid (was prescribed Armour after pleading with Doctors — and, of course, we cant find it anywhere) and it has been a COMPLETE turn around from my days…and months…and YEARS (yes, all seven of them!) on Synthroid. If Synthroid works for you — fantastic! It was hell for me, and my SYMPTOMS showed it!! Doctor after doctor did not want to TREAT my SYMPTOMS, but much rather would go back to the “results” and then bring up the ever so popular, “maybe you’re depressed”

No. I’m not. (I am naturally energetic, and POSITIVE — even through ALL of this thyroid business) You’re simply not LISTENING to me.

It was my stubborn natural, and will to “find the answer” that led me to Mary, AND finally putting my foot down and enforcing the rule to my doctors — *I* know MY body — youre just seeing “results” — so we’ll listen to what I have to say and my opinion on what medications are going into this body.

I’m glad my doctor finally HEARD what I was saying. I haven’t had this much energy, dare I say, TOO much energy in years. It’d be good to have Dr.Oz on our side!!

Thank you so much for this information… Oprah’s issues made for such a confusing time for me and I questioned everything and became frustrated! I’m so thankful that Dr. Oz cleared the air – as I simply adore him and respect him and his new show. As for vitamin D – I do not think I’ve been “tested” for the level — only tsh.. so I will add that as well to my next blood work.

Now for trying to lose weight – as menapose and thyroid is such a terrible balance!

(21) Theresa says:

It was refreshing to see a recognized and respected doctor come out in support of diagnosing and treating thyroid disorders by symptoms, not just lab work. Bravo, Dr. Oz!

After struggling with both Graves disease and Hashimoto’s for 20+ years, I now finally feel like a human being again, thanks to desiccated thyroid and a totally suppressed TSH level. I will never have the energy that I had in my 20′s, but I have so much more than I did in my 30′s and 40′s. Gone is the woman who laid on the couch missing out on my kids activities, family events and just LIFE.

My compounding pharmacist (I also use compounded hormones) flags me down to ask me about sources of thyroid info for her other patients. I always mention this site, among others. Thanks for the great job you do, informing us about these issues, Mary.

Hi Mary,

Of course it’s good to see a doctor address thyroid problems and the not so easy “treatment” for it. But my support came for a good part from your website. I think you deserve lots of credit. You’ve made that there is more awareness, though still not enough. People so easily dismiss a thyroid problem because there is not enough knowledge among the average person. People will mention someone “who is doing just fine” and that with an air of total ignorance. It irritates and makes a person with a severe thyroid problem and a 26 year struggle with Graves-made- hypo unacknowledged. I keep referring to your website where many thryoid sufferers find some understanding. You are my hero working hard to get the world to acknowledge that it is NOT treated so easily. In fact, the treatment always only works partially, no matter what kind of thyroid medicine you’re on. Thanks again!

March 19, 2010 at 12:54 pm
(25) Toni says:

I had so many symptoms still present with Synthroid and I tried Armour but it made me sick with the taste. I tried one bioidentical brand and I developed new symptoms; torn calf muscle, back spasms, eyebrow issues, extreme sensitivity in the extremities (literally froze my hands, feet, and rear off) this winter.
My new bioidentical med has to be refrigerated (not all pharmacies will tell you this) and I seem to be making progress with the naturalpath I’m now seeing. He looks at the whole picture not just the TSH range.

March 19, 2010 at 1:02 pm
(26) brenda says:

From a mainstream doctor’s point of view, thyroid issues ARE easy to treat. There are limited approved options for mainstream doctors to use, and the “gold standard” lab test ranges leave out patient input. So, Dr. Oz is right from his own point of view.

From a thyroid patient’s point of view, it is not so easy. Either we have to make do with living life at a lower level than we would like, or we have to seek alternative or supplemental treatments. If one happens to find a sympathetic doctor, that is the rare exception.

Hopefully Dr. Oz will continue to broaden his viewpoint.

March 19, 2010 at 4:32 pm
(27) Diana Loeck says:

Thanks Mary, for all that you do and I have thanked Dr. Oz too. I have spoken with the maker of Armour Thyroid and they were having trouble getting product plus they changed their composition which included less dextrose and more cellulose. That did make the tablets impossible to cut in half
but they said that they were now getting product and starting shipping the 30 and 60 MG earlier this year. So, I hope it gets back to normal. I love
Armour and am extremely allergic to synthetics (broke out in hives, rash and itching, ugh!) Then had to get on Prednisone to counteract all that! Armour has solved my tinnitus (ear ringing) and low body temp (95.4 and now 97!!) There are so many side effects that are created with hypothyroidism
that people just don’t know of until they are “miraculously” gone with a dose of thyroid. Thanks too for the Vit D heads up.

(28) Savannah says:

Read it all….but…a bit confused….I have no thyroid or para-thyroid…was taking Armour but can’t find it anywhere near me…so I started getting it compounded. Is Armour ‘really’ available but not being sold or is it still not available? The compounded RX costs lots more but it seems to work OK and better then the FAKE thyroid RX’s.
From the start I had to almost fight with my Dr. to get him to give me Armour….I WON that battle. Has anyone actually ordered Armour from say Canada? I am so afraid to get out dated Armour so I have stayed with my compounded RX.
Pity the fool who does not insist their Dr. gives them what works best for them…and as most of us know…that is Armour!!!!!!!!

(29) Dr. Linda says:

Well well well, why do so many people think that the big O is the last word on everything???? I must admit she finds good people once in awhile, but I saw the show where Dr. Oz bumbled and I could see in his face the anguish as he must have already had the BIG CONTRACT FROM HARPO and really, what could he do?
I am a Dr. that is retired as I can not practice anymore at 56 for I have 4 auto immune conditions from having thyroid cancer at 13 years of age. I get such a kick out of all these web sites that have better info on them than if you scheduled an appointment at Mayo Clinic.
Medicine is making a huge turn in the wings of waiting for the new health care plan. Do you think that middle class or what we thought were middle class people will have access to information from a Family Doctor to problems in this area in the future? The Clinics will not have the power to order the higher integrity blood work it takes to diagnose. I have learned more from this web site and SUZANNE SOMERS than I have from my peer group, as she was ill, very ill and everytime she got a No, “You Can’t Do That”, she ventured out and really, she was the first person that I took serious as her bibliography is one that can be confirmed and I go to the same Drs. as she writes about, one here in Georgia, in a small town.
As for Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil and all these lists that Oprah puts out as her “favorties” that make people rich overnight by either selling thousands of jeans or getting one a Television show……………………..time will tell with Dr. Oz, though I did not see him in Haiti with Dr. Grupra, nor did I see Oprah there either.
Good Luck Dr. Oz, you might want to pick up all of Suzanne Somers’ books and read them. When I was visiting J. Hopkins last week, I saw her books in three offices of specialists…………….God Bless Anyone that feels so rotten they have given up to find a better solution.
Your rewards in life are decided by the kinds of problems you are willing to solve……………………

(31) Amy says:

Thank you for writing about Dr. Oz… I had given up on him when it came to thyroid issues.

As far as Dr.’s thinking a “10″ or below is “good” and needs no treatment, they need to think again.
I was diagnosed with a hypothyroid 3 years ago, one year after the birth of my second child.

How was I diagnosed? My body hurt soooo much I thought I had Rheumatoid Arthritis! FINALLY my Dr. checked my thyroid levels; guess what they were only at a 4!! I always know when my thyroid is out of whack because my joints start to hurt, which means my levels have gone over a 1.5! A 1.5!!

I am thankful for my doctor who “listened” to me, who to this day still listens to what my “body” is saying to me and her! Maybe I should write her a thank you note…

I have recently been diagnosed with Graves Disease. I was given a choice of medication or radioactive iodine. I chose medication b/c the
idea of the radioactive iodine scared me. I am now on 20mg 2x day of methimazole and 25 mg 2x day of metoprolol. Before I was diagnosed, my heart went out of rhythm 3x. I really don’t like being on the medicine altho so far (10 days) but I’m not having any adverse side effects. Does anyone have any recommendations for a more natural way to treat Graves?

What a great start on national TV — finally! Not perfect, but worth a thanks, definitely. I hope he keeps it up. My doctor always wants me to tell him my symptoms, but if my TSH is on target, he doesn’t pay any attention to what I am saying. I had my thyroid removed two years ago, but am still having trouble, which is not unusual. How I wish I could find a holistic doctor not married to the money-machine brainwashing about thyroid disease. I am, however, going to try acupuncture, and I have already adjusted my diet. It all helps a lot.

I sent a thank you to Dr. Oz, but Mary, you’re the one we should all be thanking. The information on your website has helped me in so many ways. I was Dx with Hashimoto’s over 36 years ago, so I have many horrific stories of trying to get medical help. I did find doctors who thought outside the box and they have been the only ones that helped me. I also read everything I could find. I’d like to add that besides the D3, acupuncture, meditation, a healthy diet and exercise, and constantly monitoring my health, a compounded T3 made a huge difference in treating my hypothyroidism. I take Levothroid and T3. Dr. Blanchard was the saint that discovered that my body wasn’t converting the T4 to usable T3. Be well.

(37) Beth says:

This is really interesting. I am very lactose sensitive, and have not been drinking milk as a whole for a long, long time. It never occured to me that it could affect my thyroid. I’ve been treated for hypothyroidism since I was in high school, and I am now 51.

I could not drink milk outright or eat ice cream, etcetc. I relied on cheese or yogurt to provide my dairy vitamin needs (apparently, once milk is cooked, I could tolerate it better). Now it might have been a factor in the difficulty I’ve had in getting it properly under control.

I recently (last few months) began taking a vitamin D supplement because of troubles with one hip. My doctor thought I might be getting arthritis there.

I am very glad so much progress is being made in finding out how to help ourselves as much as possible. Now, if only we could actually get medical treatment as often as needed! I know I can only get to my doc once a year due to the cost.

I left Dr. Oz a note on his website thanking him. However I do wish he had made it clear that Synthroid and desiccated pig thyroid aren’t the only choices. Due to the Armour reformulation, many of us are using synthetic T3+T4 therapy with good results.

I don’t understand. I just happened on this blog. I have been taking Synthroid since I was 12 years old. I am now 58, female. For years, I have been complaining to doctors that I am so tired and lethargic and don’t feel well, but every test shows they need not increase my med more than 150 mg.
I am also on bio-identical hormones.
Is Armor another pharmaceutical company? Is it made up of pork (I don’t eat it)? Is there a natural thyroid hormone?
What should I do?

(40) Mary B says:

I am SO encouraged to see this article by Dr. Oz!! I have been SO discouraged with the constant barrage about the TSH test and where the levels MUST be! I am grateful Dr. Oz said TSH up to 10 is fine… because I feel SO much better OFF the hormone. My TSH has come down OFF thyroid replacement from 18 to 7 in one year and still going down and I am losing weight and getting back to where I was. I believe I was misdiagnosed/mistreated and took replacement for 15 years! If you are experiencing insomnia, depression, hypercholesterolemia, restless legs, heart palpitations, shortness of breath with exertion, extreme irritability – all while being on thyroid hormone – well all I can say is I have been there too! All gone now! Now to get rid of the 50 plus lbs after being placed on thyroid hormone with a TSH of 5! Almost 20 lbs off already in one year and going down without much effort! :) There are many other ways to treat borderline hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s like I had. More holistic ways that your body may respond to better. Maybe vitamin D deficiency, maybe WHEAT sensitivity (I have that)… are the real culprits. Cheers to being an educated informed patient and on to great health! :)

I had thiorodocotmey seven years ago, 4 years before I asked my Doctor to check my thiroid as I felt pain. He alwayes say you are fine, your blood test is normal, I was new to Canada, feel shy to ask, yet I told him this is not my nick, it is getting larger and I feel pain, same answer your blood test is normal. After two years I had pain in my sholder, mussel pain, I went to E.R at St. Micheal, the Chest specialist was looking in the XR he told me that I have a lump in my nick and this is thiored problem apperntly, and he sent me to all test you can imagine. So I had to remove my thiroid, I am getting Synthyroid .137mg. The thiroid doctor told me nothing before the surgery, only I will take hirmone pill and that it, after the surgery she told me I have to take pill for my heart because the hermone strong and it will affect the heart, same for Calcum replacement and vitamin d. My period was irregler, although that never happend to me before, and it stoped two years ago I was 47, while all women in my family will have it at least to 55 years old. I feel weak, no energy, depresse, lost a lot of hair. I have two childern to take care of, they are now 12 and 14, they need strong mom, I don’t know what is the best for me, is this the right medecine or not. I have now pain in my nick after so much stress I had with the separation from my husband. Sometime I wish I did not remove all my thiroid, although they removed first half and after two month they said is better to remove the second half, it was not so clear if there is a melagement cell. after that I had to do the radioactive. It effect my heart now, I wonder what will be more.

I have had hypothyroid desease for about 20 years and have only taken synthroid for this problem. I have to have it checked regularily as I always seem to have symtoms. My blood tests are pretty well always normal. After reading this I am now wondering what else I can do as I do have a weight gain and my hair is getting quite thin. I will look into some of the things suggested now. thank you for your info.
I do want to say that when I was first diognosed about 20 years ago, my doctor who is retired now did point out hair loss, eyebrow and eyelash loss mostly on left side of head as an indication of the problem. I went to him at first because I was very ill and extremely sleepy. I would fall asleep for hours.
I am curious now about the vitamin D and can I get what I need over the counter?

Does anyone know a doctor that looks at symptoms in the Houston area?

I took Levothyroxine as prescribed by my ObGyn, for 5 years since my pregnancy with twins at the age of 40. I’ve had no last 1/3rd of my eyebrows since I was 20. Last fall I noticed my hair thinning, weight increases and exhaustion. I called my ObGyn and she decreased the micrograms Levothyroxine. Although I didn’t understand, I took the meds and set an appointment with a Thyroid specialist (endocrinologist) at Baylor. She told me that me my tests after being on the lower dose for 3 months reflected my levels were perfect. I was despondent. I went back to the old dosage and after 3 months my ObGyn tested me and my levels are now normal. She wanted to send me to a dietician.

Mary,
Thank you for clearing this up! I had seen the Oprah episode where she said she didn’t take thyroid medicine anymore and I was totally confused. That information in combination with several doctors who have dismissed my increasing symptoms because my lab numbers were “within” range, had left me doubting myself. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos 16 years ago, and took Synthroid, but my symptoms have increased.

My Internist just switched me to a new med and I have an appointment with an Endocrinologist in a week. I didn’t realize that due to the shortage of Endos, at least in my area, a referral is now needed. Thank you for the new information. I am reading several of your books, now that I know about you.

>There are many who feel that the “Pharmaceutical grade” vitamin D ..

Doctors have seen that while both D2 and D3 produce a similar initial rise in circulating storage-form vitamin D level (25OHD), only D3 produced a maintained rise out to a month after a single dose [60*].

D2 has a lesser affinity for the vitamin d receptor. In 2004, Armas [60*] reports that there was no increase in calcidiol levels from baseline after 14 days of supplementation – although D2 did increase calcidiol level initially upon starting supplementation. Cholecalciferol also has a higher affinity for the Vitamin D Receptor than does ergocalciferol [61].”

[59] Trang HM et al. “Evidence that vitamin D3 increases serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D more efficiently than does vitamin D2.” Am J Clin Nutr. 1998; 68(4): 854-8.

[60*] Armas LAG et al. “Vitamin D2 Is Much Less Effective than Vitamin D3 in Humans.” J. Clin. Endo. Metab. 2004; 89(11): 5387-5391:

“[After a single 50,000 IU dose of D2 or D3], both produced similar initial rises in serum 25OHD over the first 3 d, but 25OHD continued to rise in the D3-treated subjects [..] whereas serum 25OHD fell rapidly in the D2-treated subjects and was not different from baseline at 14 d.

(47) Brian says:

Fluoride also causes thyroid problems as fluoride is absorbed by the thyroid instead of iodine which is used to make the thyroid hormones T3 and T4 among others the numbers represent the amount of iodine that is present in the thyroid hormones. Fluoride is documented for almost over a century as causing many health problems. Some businesses add fluoride to baby feeding and governments add fluoride to drinking water.

(49) Carly says:

I have no thyroid and only 3 parathyroids. Synthroid not only did not work it made my hair fall out and I had terrible fybromyalgia symptoms. I switched to Naturethroid and started taking OTC D3 in dosages of 6000 iu per day. My Vit D levels are now normal, my aches and pains much better and thanks to the Naturethroid my thyroid levels are much better although still not where I would like them to be but that is probably a dosing issue..it is difficult to get the right dosage. Having a total thyroidectomy is quite devastating to the body as is extreme hypothyroidism. Glad to hear this about Dr.Oz but it needs much much more discussion in the national health dialogue and the pharmaceutical industry that keeps trying to shove Synthroid down everyone’s throat (no pun intended) needs to be taken to task over it and the fact that they also push it on doctors to prescribe. There are also other things people can explore like iodine therapy and adrenal support in conjunction with thyroid and D3 supplementation that can help.

I am one of those hated people, endocrinologist-you can start rolling your eyes- Now all you have to do to get this hateful societies to believe you is to show them irrefutable, well done studies that can be reproduced by more than one group of scientist-unfortunately you need those-. It is not easy, but it SHOULD NOT be easy; these are literally life matters. I do use Armour in young women when LT4 does not seem to give enoiugh ummp, but I have seen scores of elderly women treated with Armour who develop dangerous atrial fibrillation d even without suppressed TSH. Most of us get very appprehensive about a medicattion that can provoke a lifetreatening condition even if as uncommon as atrial fibrillation do to T3 toxicosis from Armour. And no I do not get monies from ABBOT-I use generics.

this morning I went to the dr. to see about my bloodwork regarding my thyroid. it came back with t3 being extremely high 36.2 I used to take armour thyroid and started to have heart palpitation and my dr, felt I should take levothyroxine. well I did get the new medication and after two days I thought I was going to jump out of my own skin, so I stopped and called the dr but the dr. had gone of vacation and another dr. said I should just wait until she came back, ok so I did just that, I started to feel really good and with lots of energy to spare. went to the gym every day and worked out, felt great. meanwhile I just stopped taking any medication but was taking lots of thyroid supplements from the health food store, went back to the dr,this morning and my t3 levels were so extreme that it seems instead of hypo I am now hyper,I dont understand this at all and I am now back on armour thyroid 90 mcg, until my next bloodwork in one month. I never felt better while off this medication but then what would make my t3 go so high . I would love to have dr. oz do a thorough investiation on thyroid problems, he seems involved with every part of the body I could use some help

I recently was diagnosed with malignant thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed. Is it okay for me to take Armour Thyroid? The synthroid is not working for me. I still have outburst of sweating episodes. So embarasing. I believe I have leaky gut syndrome. I’m waiting for the results of my blood work and urine sample. I really hope to get some type of satisfaction. I have not worked over a year. I have vasvogal syncope which I believe is all related to autoimmune disease. I really enjoy watching Dr. Oz he has been a life saver!

Armour sounds so much better than Synthroid—but how do you get around the fact that a product made of “pig meat” would have the possibility of prion infection? And also, its not from non-hormone injected pigs. Dr. Weil did mention the possiblity of prion infection (mad cow) from Armour. Anyone have info on this?

(55) Edith says:

Im already suffering heart palpitations for more than two days when I decided to have an ECG (April 19, 2013). result showed PVCs. A GP prescribed Carvedilol and Clopidogrel. Later (April 23, 2013), I went to an Internal Med Dr (we have no cardiologist in the area, available only by schedule on monthly basis) and found my heart in normal shape through a chest x-ray, still have PVCs from 2nd time EKG, series of blood tests showing I have high level of cholesterol, thyroid ultrasound showed I have nodules (probably cystic). The doctor told me I have hypothyroidism who prescribed levothyroxine 100mcg a day to treat the nodules and will increase to 150mcg after a month. I thought I had been also tested with tsh, t3, t4 levels (I didnt understand much about this yet before) but when I retrieved the lab results, no tests for thyroid hormone levels were undertaken. Now I am wondering how the doctor could tell i am low thyroid and I need levothyroxine?
Currently I am feeling like hell, scared of this prolonged heart palpitations, muscle and bone (feet) pains, shortness of breath. I just decided to cut the dose to 50mcg a day this morning. Btw, the doctor also prescribed rosuvastatin for the cholesterol and continue carvedilol beta blocker. My heart palpitations persist, now I am thinking for a travel and go to a cardiologist and to an endocrinologist. Should I continue taking levothyroxine?

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me.. My name is Dorcas, i live in USA,and I’m happily married to a lovely and caring wife, with a kid. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife. so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce. she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn’t love me anymore. So she packed out of my house and made me and my child passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail. and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife. So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited Drenaholo@gmail.com

My name is Raju i am originally from India but based in France. Used to think Indian Guru’s were the best until i had problems with my marriage i even travelled all the way to India to consult some for help they told me not to worry that my woman will be back to me.
After so many month my woman did not come back instead she filled for divorce i was heart broken and did not know what to do not only because of the money i will loose but because of the love i have for her. After so much trouble i finally came in contact with Dr ekuku and can never forget him because everything that looked so difficult for others became so simple for him.
My woman dropped the divorce suit and i am happy to say we live together till date.
So when i see the testimonies of other i laugh because my own case was worst that that of so many people and dr ekuku was able to solve it.
Just want to use this testimony to create the awareness and also make public the great powers that dr ekuku possess.

i once appeared on the Jerry springer show because of my relationship issues with my man on this particular episode he was cheating on me with this young black lady and there on the show he promised not to ever cheat on me again 3 months after the show my man said he wanted a divorce and that he was tired of the relationship and want a new life.

I also had a buyer that desired to pay thru Pay out Pal, she would spend the transaction fee. I checked on Spend Pal they haven’t any these issue, so I told the gal “fine although the vehicle stays the following till the green is in my hands” which was the very last I observed from her. They have all kinds of angles .

Here is naturopathic doctor who gives her clients natural dessicated thyroid hormone and works with you to get the dosing right, you can do a phone consultation with her. Her website is http://www.DoctorValerieNelson.com and one of her specialties is thyroid. If you fill out the form for a phone appointment, be sure to email her as well because the forms don’t always go through. She is really helping people in this area. Very nice doctor.
