I take 90mg of NP thyroid, as I’m hypothyroid and it has made a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference is how great I feel. Energy, sleep, mood, metabolism.

Your endocrine system rules your whole body—it’s the manager of the body.

I’ve lost lots of weight, have energy & my medication works so much better. I’m able to tolerate 10mg now vs just the 5mg.

I think EVERYONE should go see a REALLY good endocrinologist who isn’t afraid to get you feeling “great,” not just “good.” I know alot of people on thyroid that need alot more than the dr. is willing to give them.
Also, I’ve heard really negative things about synthetic vs pig thyroid.

I don’t know what they give you if you’re hyperthyroid, but I imaging there’s something.
Hope you feel better soon!
