Stop The Thyroid Madness

Hello my thyroid friends. If you’ve noticed (or not), my last blog post was 11 months ago from when I am writing this. So many of you have been posting on previous posts for help. I’ve tried my best to continue giving patient-to-patient information to you. The reason I’ve been gone so long? I was a caretaker last year, then sadly experienced the grievous passing of someone deeply loved and highly significant to me. And loss and grief of that dimension is not for the faint of heart. It’s challenging. It can be a nightmare. And with deep grief can come the need to have an important break from ..read more

An Followup to the previous post titled “Is Armour Working…or Not?”
Stop The Thyroid Madness
by Janie Bowthorpe
1y ago
Four days ago, I was finally able to compose a blog post about two issues: that something fishy/suspicious seemed to be going on with Armour desiccated thyroid for a certain body of hypothyroid or Hashimoto’s patients. Plus some comments were also going around that needed better balance. For anyone new to this topic and scratching your head about any part above: 1) Armour is a brand prescription of porcine desiccated thyroid that has been around for many, many decades. It was, in fact, the only most successful hypothyroid treatment. 2) Desiccated Thyroid has all five hormones (T4, T3, T2, T1 ..read more

Is Armour working…or not?
Stop The Thyroid Madness
by Janie Bowthorpe

Hello to my fellow hypothyroid-of-any-cause or Hashi’s patients! Wow, I am steps away from 20 years (!!!) of making my focus about patient-reported experiences, observations, and wisdom as my focus!! Blows me away. And my focus was the result of doctors who failed ME for nearly 20 years, besides my mother, besides what could easily be millions worldwide for many decades. Let’s talk about the desiccated thyroid brand called Armour. There seem to be strong, black and white rumors going around in some patient groups that today, Armour is working “FOR NO ONE”. Insert loud obnoxious voice: “FOR NO ..read more

NP Thyroid by Acella has once again been recalled!
Stop The Thyroid Madness
by Janie Bowthorpe
1y ago
Yup. It’s happened again. The following lots of NP Thyroid by Acella Pharmaceuticals LLC have been recalled due to sub-potency! 15-mg, 30-mg, 60-mg, 90-mg and 120-mg NP Thyroid® And as the creator of Stop the Thyroid Madness (STTM) patient-to-patient movement, I’m not surprised. Since Acella brought NP Thyroid back after the recall(s) in 2019, there have STILL been complaints by some hypothyoid or Hashimoto’s patients!! No, not all. But enough to cause concern. The complaints have occurred in thyroid groups directly associated with STTM…and even in groups that are not directly associated wit ..read more

When Some People Don’t Get it Yet About Doctors…
Stop The Thyroid Madness

Stop the Thyroid Madness has an excellent and active Facebook page. Daily posts reflect what we as informed thyroid patients have experienced and observed again and again. Nutty information from some groups And this statement in the graphic was made by someone on an important post. That post spoke about years of patient experiences on one particular subject which repeatedly counters what some doctors state. And on one side, we agree about some social media posts!! There can be some pretty nutty information from some groups on Facebook or elsewhere. That poor information can come from members ..read more

Recalls include NP Thyroid by Acella Pharmaceuticals and both Naturethroid and WP Thyroid by RLC Labs Hello everyone.

A Belgium Doctor “Let it Rips” about Crappy Hypothyroid Treatment in France–Good Job Dr. Resimont!
Stop The Thyroid Madness

Hypothyroid patients, whether from Hashimoto’s disease, thyroid removal, genetics, or any other cause of having hypothyroidsim, have been finding out the bald crappy truth about how poorly hypothyroidism is treated by medical practitioners, especially in the use of T4-only. And even worse, this crap treatment with nothing but T4, a storage hormone, has been going on for decades…decades!!! clearly affecting millions worldwide. It’s T3, the active hormone, which changes our lives, NOT the storage hormone T4 by itself. We are NOT meant to live for conversion to T3 alone. Even a healthy thyroid p ..read more
