Treatment an underactive thyroid using natural medication made from the glands of pigs – Natural Desiccated Thyroid – is the best hypothyroidism hormone replacement medication. Natural Desiccated Thyroid contains several types of natural hormones. It is a thyroid medication that is superior to treatment with synthetic hormones.
Natural vs. Synthetic Thyroid Hormones
The pituitary gland secretes a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) that triggers the thyroid to make and release T3 and T4 hormones.
- Primary hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid doesn’t make enough T3 and T4 despite being instructed to do so by the pituitary gland.
- Secondary hypothyroidism occurs when there’s too little TSH stimulating the thyroid gland.
The correct dosage of thyroid medication should not be based on the patient’s TSH levels – but rather on clinical improvement of symptoms.
- Synthetic thyroid hormones – such as Synthroid, Levothroid or Levoxyl – are weak thyroid T4s that must be converted into T3.
- Natural thyroid hormones are animal extracts that come from the glands of pigs contain both T4 and triiodothyronine T3.
