None of them, Get to know the correct tests to do as well as the treatment protocols. You might not get the right information from your treating doctor if he is not aware of the pitfalls of the testing and treatment protocols. That is the reason world wide hypothyroid patients are on life long medications with the the autoimmune component not addressed correctly One has to do the right tests 7 of them and not the only TSH. FreeT4 and Free T3 Which is the common tests done by even endocrinologists all over the world. The remaining 4 tests need to be done and what patients are prescribed is the synthetic. T4 Thyroxine known by brands like Thyronorm./ Synthroid /Eltroxin are not the correct drugs Because T4 is not the active hormone which is what most of the drs prescribe T3 is the active hormone. T4 has to get converted to T3 in the presence of a healthy liver and adequate levels of nutrients like, Iodine,Zinc, B12 etc if your body lacks any of these nutrients and if you have a unhealthy liver your body is not able to convert T4 to T3 and you will be on life long medication The lesson everybody should learn is to not blindly believe the drs. You get educated and empower yourself Do your homework properly and you have to take personal responsibility for your own health. So go to the Right doctor Get the Right tests and get the Right Advice Make your thyroid work for you and not against you. Get a consult after sharing name and phone number and Get educated and not medicated.
