Thyroid Description: The thyroid gland produces the hormone thyroid, used
to regulate certain body functions. Many people are affected by an over or under
active gland, so hormonal treatment is sometimes necessary.
Dean recommends whole-natural thyroid over synthetic because they cover a fuller
spectrum of thyroid hormones, including T1, T2, T3 and T4. (We choose Bio-Throid®
over Armour® because the former doesn't contain the excipients of corn starch
or titanium dioxide. In fact Bio-Throid® only contains natural thyroid and
cellulose). Whole thyroid supplements are of USA porcine origin. Whole thyroid
is measured in grains, 60mg = 1 grain. One grain or higher dosages are potent
and usually require temperature monitoring and occasional blood tests. Persons
with more serious thyroid conditions are often be prescribed it and dosages under
a physician's guidance can often reach 3 to 5 grains daily. However dosages of
more than one grain are usually increased by a grain over one to two weeks. Quarter
grain whole thyroid supplements (15mg) provide a lesser potency and
as such provide a general support to an aging thyroid condition. However long-term
use of quarter-grain whole thyroid extracts may also require occasional breaks
and monitoring. Dosages of whole thyroid extracts depend on your age and thyroid
condition. As a rough guide they are 15mg to 30mg daily increasing to 60mg daily
after a couple of weeks if necessary. Your physician MUST direct higher dosages.
Whenever necessary, increase or decrease your thyroid dosage as slowly as possible
over days and weeks. Reduce or stop thyroid supplementation if any of the following
occur: you feel unwell, your rising-from-bed-in-the-morning temperature is over
98.2 degrees Celsius, your resting pulse is more than 75 beats a minute, your
thyroid function blood tests are abnormal. Do not use any thyroid supplementation
if you suffer from hyperthyroidism (an over-active thyroid).
