Hi I am doing some research into thyroid disorders and someone askedme if there was any recent research findings within the lst two ears abtT3 whuch is prescribed for hypothyroidim.

?This follows the TV programme the ONE SHOW where Lyn Mynott CEO of Thyroid UK appeared  discussing the  shortage of T3 due to the price being jackedup by a pharmacutical company thus making it impossible for drs to prescribe  due  to its high cost. This seems very wrong because  there is plenty of evidence worldwide  to show that T3 does change lives because some people need it in conjunction with T$ as the thyroid cannot convert t4 tot3in a largee numberof peoeple. People are committingsuicide because theirthyroid condition is not being treateddueto the shortage of T£ simply because the pharmaceutical  Company has jacked the price up. The NHS is supposed to be investigating this but meanwhile people continueto sugffr immensely.

      Ridiculously expensive meds. None work right because they aren't bioidentical. We spend all this time trying to get the meds right, the right ones, the right dose. The drug companies take a perfectly good natural product, tweak it so they can get a patent, but then the tweaked one doesn't work. Then sell the defective stuff for a fortune, while telling people it's better. It's a racket.
