The U.S. National Institutes of Health has announced that a clinical trial has just been started at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, in Bethesda, MD, to compare natural desiccated thyroid drugs versus levothyroxine, for the treatment of primary hypothyroidism. In particular, symptom relief, cognitive function, well-being, and quality of life will be the focus of the clinical trial. If you are between 18 and 65, and have been treated with levothyroxine for at least the last six months for hypothyroidism, you may be eligible for this trial. (NOTE: Only active or retired members of the military and their beneficiaries are eligible for this trial.)
Those who qualify and participate in this trial will not only be contributing to crucial research for the hypothyroid community, but may also discover that natural desiccated thyroid is superior to their current levothyroxine treatment.
Learn about the natural desiccated thyroid vs. levothyroxine clinical trial now, as well as information on how to participate if you're eligible.
