Janie A. Bowthorpe, M.Ed. became a thyroid patient activist in 2002 after a complete turnaround with the use of desiccated thyroid and correcting debilitating issues which plagued her after T4-only use. As a messenger of what patients have learned all over the world, she is adamant that thyroid patients (no matter the cause of their hypothyroid state) become informed to begin the process of change. In reading this book you will discover:
The TSH lab test and its ridiculous “normal” range is a complete failure for diagnosis and treatment.
T4-only medications like Synthroid or Levothyroxine result in lingering hypothyroid symptoms…sooner or later…
A large percentage of patients on T4, or held hostage to the TSH lab test no matter what meds they are on, end up with fatigue, the need to nap, adrenal problems, poor levels of iron, B12 or vitamin D, depression, rising cholesterol or blood pressure, etc.
