I was diagnosed with hashimoto's this year and my doctor started me on levothyroxine. I'm due to see the doctor again and am planning to ask what they think of dessicated thyroid supplements. Does anyone have experience with dessicated thyroid? Do you like it? Why or why not?

      So I did ask my doctor what they thought and they said they were willing to help me try them but I would need blood work much more frequently. They said because supplements are created from many different pigs or cows, there is certain to be fluctuation in thyroid levels from each pig or cow. Their opinion was that it's not consistent and they don't recommend it. I personally think that makes sense so I don't think I will use it.

      It's supplements created from the thyroid hormones of pigs or cows, referred to as bovine thyroid. A lot of people use them for thyroiditis and really like them.
