Gluten in Your Thyroid Medication?

Posted in Hormones, Knowledge is Power Series, Thyroid on 09.09.16


Gluten inGluten in your Thyroid Meds Your
Thyroid Medication?

Not at New Medicine Foundation!

Hypothyroid patients, beware: your medicine might contain gluten as an ingredient. I have just learned that a rep from Pfizer the pharmaceutical manufacturer, has been quoted as saying that the source of the starch in Cytomel, a synthetic form of T3 thyroid hormone, cannot be verified and could come from corn, potato, or wheat.

Pfizer does not seem to know or care that this is not just a problem for those with general gluten sensitivity or, worse, Crohn’s Disease. It may also make thyroid conditions worse, even much worse, totally defeating the purpose of the drug in the first place.

Cytomel contains the T3 thyroid hormone, one of five hormones produced by the thyroid (the others are T1, T2, T4, and calcitonin). Most thyroid medications for hypothyroid patients (those who cannot produce enough thyroid hormone) contain the T4 hormone, which the body is supposed to convert into T3. But not everyone can convert T4, and some must take the T3 hormone instead.

I have heard that Cytomel is the only mass-marketed T3 medication. Now if it is tainted with gluten, and if the patient taking it is gluten sensitive, which many are today and many don’t even know it, then this synthetic medication could be doing more harm than good to their already suffering bodies and deteriorating health.

Buyer beware! You do have options. Come over to the New Medicine Foundation and let the team help you balance your thyroid and put an end to your thyroid woes. Dr. Edward W. Pearson and the team at NMF have spent countless hours researching and assuring our patients that the naturally compounded organic thyroid supplementation that we administer is free of ALL additives. All you get is naturally compounded thyroid medication that is specific to your needs. If you are not converting T3 to T4 as you should, or if you need more T4 than you do T3, a supplementation will be created that will contain T3 and T4 in the exact dosage to your needs.

You don’t have to suffer through the in-efficiencies of a broken medical system any longer. Come on over to NMF and find out how we have made medical care affordable and natural. Find out how we fix what is broken instead of medicating the symptoms away. Connect with Coach D, Donna Appel and get the details today.

With the arrival of virtual medical care including virtual weight loss/ detox support, hormone balancing and more, I have decided to take this meetup group virtual as well. I will be giving out phone numbers and log in codes for those wishing to attend these meetings either live or during rebroadcast. Tonight’s call focused on hormone balancing, an issue that can affect our ability to lose weight and get and/or stay healthy.

My mission is to build a platform where anyone can come for weight loss and health issue advice free of embarrassment, judgement and self-serving opinions. I will strive to only present the facts so that members can make up their own minds about their health and well-being and how best to manage their issues with food and health, both psychological and physical. I hope you will join me soon.

Many blessings to you all,

Butterfly Looking Thyroid Gland

Thyroid function abnormalities and what to do about them are the topics for this week’s HCG detox weight loss virtual support group Meet Up discussion.  We also chatted a bit about hCG during the Q&A portion of our virtual meeting and touched base on quality B Complex supplements.  Thyroid disease including hypothyroidism is on the rise.  Learn to identify the signs, what tests are necessary when determining an individual’s thyroid health and what you can do about correcting the situation.  It is estimated that more than 40% of the population of the United States has some sort of hypothyroid issue going on. Listen in and get an education as we discuss the importance of the thyroid gland, where it is located and a whole lot more.  This event was broadcast live on Monday, March 23, 2015.

Participate live from home, work, auto, anywhere (sign up on MeetUp) or listen to the replay anytime by logging into the A Voice For Change blog page (www.avoiceforchange.com/blog).  Can’t be on the call live, email me your questions, then listen to the answers on the recording.  I would love for you to join us live on Monday evenings to discuss HCG detox weight loss and so much more.  We meet every Monday evening at 8:30pm Eastern time via teleconference.  Topics for upcoming meetings are shown on Meet Up and vary week to week.  These topics include but are not limited to weight issues and weight management, the use of hCG, detoxification, hormone, adrenal and thyroid balancing, addictions, psychology of food, food quality, food prep, recipes, etc and all that goes along with getting and staying healthy.
