Part 3: Little known facts about thyroid medications

We find that many people find their thyroid medication to be inadequate in relieving their symptoms.  Why?  It could be that it's not taken correctly (on an empty stomach, in the morning, 1-2 hours before eating or drinking anything), it’s synthetic, that the body isn't able to convert/use the hormone appropriately, or that the “fillers”(inactive ingredients) in the medications don’t react well with the patient.  Whatever the case, there are other thyroid medications to consider.
