I haven't read the other posts - sorry - but I was on Synthroid for Hashi's and it didn't do a thing for me. I then developed hypothyroidism (because my adrenals came crashing down), and tried synthroid again, and it didn't change a thing for me. My thyroid swelling and symptoms just kept getting worse, until I found a doctor that was willing to prescribe NDT for me.
I seem to have a very touchy thyroid, as if I take/eat anything at all that will interfere with it, my symptoms all come rushing back. Even just one serving of spinach will do this.
Still trying to push my doc for a higher dose, but she's now VERY reluctant - the problem is, she is the ONLY doctor in my area that will prescribe NDT.
