    Many endocrinologist will not prescribe desiccated they prefer the synthetic T4 why

    I was told I had Hashimoto's Thyroiditis even though I found out today that I was never really tested for it only my TSH level was checked and an ultrasound

    Back in the 50's, the medication wasn't regulated as well and dessicated thyroid caused heart problems.  Today it is well regulated, but the main company that made Armour Thyroid, which is dessicated pig hormone, quit making it.  I've been unable to get it for the past year or so, and I feel so much worse on the synthetic thyroid.
