Choosing the Right Thyroid Medication – An Evidenced-Based Algorithm and a SIBO Study

Sept. 26, 2018

What is the best thyroid medication? You may have heard that you require a special medication that combines T4 and T3, but this isn’t true for most. The majority of people appear to respond best to T4 alone, although some may need a higher dose to feel optimal. For those who do not respond fully to this, there are other considerations including T4 plus T3 medications or even liquid T3. This is important because if you jump to a T4 plus T3 medication too quickly you could risk side effects, including cardiovascular symptoms. Let’s discuss this and a SIBO case study illustrating why less treatment is often more effective. https://drruscio.com/choosing-the-right-thyroid-medication/
