Thyroid- Nutri-meds vs Armour

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if anyone takes Nutri-Meds thyroid medication. Are you satisified with this product? Just if anyone has personal experience to share cause Armour is hard to get without a prescription. I read this on sttm this:

Quote:
NUTRI-MEDS PORCINE, a non-prescription brand of natural thyroid, CONTAINS:

Whole Dessicated Thyroid Glandular Concentrate - Porcine
Raw Porcine Thyroid Tissue 130 mg.
Dicalcium Phosphate
Magnesium Sterate (Natural Tableting Agent)
Patients report that over-the-counter thyroid products, including Nutri-meds, are FAR weaker than all the above. Yes, they may be good in a pinch for help, but not for long term support.

My 13 yo dd takes it. She is doing really well on it. I found it easier to dose than Armour - not as strong.
I have taken it in the past, but can't tolerate any thyroid hormone at all now.

I'm curious what others here have experienced with Nutri Meds also.

Nutri-Meds really works!

My naturopath recommeded this and I have to agree it's fantastic. Don't let someone who only knows the product by what they may have heard hold you back. You can read testimonials on their website from people who use it and it is widely recommended by all kinds of practitioners for the simple reason that Nutri-Meds thyroid really works.

I started Nutri-Meds today. I have thyroid symptoms but according to the doc, I am normal, ha ha, so no meds from him. I also have a thyroid tumor they are scanning twice a year. After years of feeling terrible, I am going to try to at least make it better myself. I will keep getting the tumor scanned, of course, and blood work.

I am starting on 1/2 a tablet a day to be cautious.

Any advice would be wonderful!

Same scenario for me!

Joan, I am in the same situation as you! Are you feeling better with the Nutri Meds? Did your tumor shrink? Did anyone else on this thread have continued success with Nutri Meds?? Can't wait to hear! Jen

Anyone else have any experience with Nutri-meds? I'm trying to decide between them and Dr. Ron's Thyroid and Liver. I know Dr. Ron's will be a good deal more expensive to get adequate thyroid hormone, but I know it's a good company.

Those of you on Nutri-meds, how's it going?

Hi,

in order to be successful using thyroid hormone of any kind, you will need to have enough iron in your system.  our bodies cannot use the thyroid hormone if we are low ( or too high ) in iron, or if our adrenal glands are not supplying enough cortisol.  vitamin C helps the body absorb iron.  some people suffer from inflammation, which could be caused by subclinical gluten intolerance--so it might be necessary to take krill oil & to remove gluten from your diet.  vitamin D can interfere with the metabolism of thyroid hormone if it you don't have enough--you can do some reading about that too.   it sounds complicated, but if you starting learning step by step, get the supplements you need & correct the deficiencies, eventually you will get your life back and feel "normal."  there is a website by the name of "stop the thyroid madness" which is a good place to start learning.  everything I am telling you is from my own personal experience.  I had to correct vitamin deficiencies first before my body could tolerate or make use of any thyroid hormone.  best of luck to you in getting the good health you are seeking.
