    Thyro-Gold users? Please share your experience

    I did a search on the forum but haven't found specific reviews about Thyro-Gold. I'm currently on Nature-Throid 2.5gr day but am considering switching to Thyro-Gold, mostly because I don't want to have to rely on my naturopath for the Nature-Throid Rx anymore.

    If anyone is using Thyro-Gold, please share your experience with it (pros and cons) and how you dosed it while on HCG.

    Thanks a lot!

    I have used Thyro-gold now for about 6 mos. Brought my FT3 up, TSH down from over 3. My Free T3 has stayed the same, which i believe to be due to high iron and adrenal fatigue (treating both now). I just ordered T3 from an across the border pharmacy to use to increase my FT3 while i fix my underlying issues. But a large majority of my symptoms are gone, just trying to get my FT3 optimal.

    I also take ACE for adrenal fatigue (after doing a saliva test and being low cortisol)
    PureFormula Thyroid Support Complex (pretty much has everything you need to help with thyroid support).

    Im very happy i started Thyrogold.

    Have you joined the Facebook groups for Thyroid Support? There is a ton of great information there. Started by Janie who wrote STTM.

    Dosing Information for Thyro-gold:

    Procedure when switching from a T4 only medication like Synthroid, Levothyroxine, Eltroxin, etc. :

    Stop your T4 only medication one day and start this the next. Do not take both together as this could make you hyper.

    Purchase the 150 mg. capsules as they are best for multi-dosing. If you buy 3 bottles, you get the best price. If you are not sure where the website is; google "ThyroGold".

    Get a 150 mg. capsule. Open it over a plate. Divide the powder in half with a knife. Take this one half (75 mg.) for two weeks at bedtime. You can either wash it down with water or mix it with honey, peanut butter or Nutella to hide the taste.

    After two weeks has passed, add in the other half of the 150 mg. pill so you taking 1/2 of a 150 mg. pill (75 mg.) at bedtime and 1/2 of a 150 mg. pill (75 mg.) about 12 hours later. Do this for two weeks.

    Then, add in another half so that you are taking one whole 150 mg. pill at bedtime and another 1/2 of a 150 mg. (75 mg.) about 12 hours later. Do this for two weeks.

    Then, add in another half so that you are taking one whole 150 mg. pill at bedtime and another whole 150 mg. pill about 12 hours later. Hold at this dose for 4-6 weeks time.

    Then, either get blood testing or continue to dose by removal of all your hypo symptoms.

    NOTE: If you were already on another form of dessicated thyroid hormone (for example Armour Thyroid or NP Thyroid or whatever), then, you can swap one NDT (Natural Dessicated Thyroid) hormone directly for another. It is awkward to tell the exact dose of ThyroGold to start, but starting with one 150 mg. capsule should be safe and then, you can up it from there.

    Tips: Most patients end up taking around 450 - 600 mg of ThyroGold (approx 3.75 - 5grains of NDT) per day to feel well again. Some need a little more and some need a little less.

    Also, you may find this link useful if you decide to pursue self treatment: http://www.jacemedical.com/articles/...timulation.pdf. This document was produced by Dr. John Lowe for his patients.

    ThyroGold can either be taken on an empty stomach or with food.

    ThyroGold should not be taken within 4 hours of calcium, estrogen or iron.

    One 150 mg. ThyroGold contains 50 mcg. T4 and 12.5 mcg. T3 OR a little more than a typical grain (60 mg.) of other dessicated thyroid hormone. However, I do want to mention, that in practice, we have heard from patients that it has proved stronger.

    Dr. John Lowe (the creator of ThyroGold) was an advocate of taking all your thyroid hormone at bedtime as his research showed that it uploaded to your system between 4-7 a.m. daily. However, at STTM (Stop the Thyroid Madness) patient experience has taught us that multi-dosing imitates how a healthy thyroid gland would function. Therefore, we combine both methods.

    Thank you SO much for all this info! I did purchase some Nature-Throid from the pharmacy link I posted in another thread but will try Thyro-Gold if my Free T3 doesn't get to the upper quarter of the range. IS ACE = adrenal cortisol extract, and which brand do you get? I've never tried it but had to stop hydrocortisone so I'm not currently taking anything for my adrenal fatigue (though I noticed no change in symptoms after stopping hydrocortisone).

    Thanks again!

    I used thyrogold for over a year, was feeling great on it. Then, I got in a new bottle, took my first dose from that new bottle and suffered from anaphylactic shock. I emailed the maker of the product to see if anything was changed in the formula and she said no. She stated "something else must have caused the reaction." I hadn't had anything but that in over 2 hours, so that completely turned me off from trusting another company that pertussis produces these online NDT options.

    I am now untreated since this happened in March of this year and my health deteriorated faster than ever. I think the supplements in that product are what makes people feel better so to speak, I just don't believe in the authenticity of the claims anymore.
