I have recently been given a new paper written by Professor Rudolf Hoermann, Mel Rowe and Peter Warmingham. The three authors have joined forces to produce to try and improve patients’ knowledge of effective diagnosis and treatment of hypothyroidism.  The title of their paper is, “A Patient’s Guide to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism”.… The post Current Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism are Both Fundamentally Flawed appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

This blog came out of a conversation with a thyroid patient who was still having some issues when on mostly T3 with a little T4 in the mix. She had improved greatly with the T3 but was not quite at the point she wanted to be. I related my own story to her. I simply… The post A Small Number of Thyroid Patients Cannot Cope with Any Amount of Levothyroxine (T4 medication) in Their System appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

Assessing Your T4 to T3 Conversion Capability: Are You A Good Enough Converter of T4? Do you have enough T3?

10M ago
Dr Tania S. Smith, of Thyroid Patients Canada, wrote an article on assessing conversion ability from T4 to T3 in late 2018. It is extremely useful and I think it might help some thyroid patients to understand why they are having problems. Dr Smith’s article is entitled: “Are you a poor T4 converter? How low… The post Assessing Your T4 to T3 Conversion Capability: Are You A Good Enough Converter of T4? Do you have enough T3? appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

I was not going to write this post. I never even thought that it required writing. However, there are so many differing views expressed on the Internet, on other peoples’ websites and by some doctors who practice in this area, that I felt that I ought to write something. It will at least give me… The post Sex Hormones and Cortisol Relationships appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

Autoimmune Protocols (AIPs) for Lowering Autoantibodies – May Not Be Right for Every Thyroid Patient
Paul Robinson Thyroid Blog
by Paul Robinson
1y ago
These days, there is a lot of focus on diet and supplements as a solution to autoimmune thyroid problems. The basic idea behind these approaches is to reduce, and ideally stop, any autoimmune response that may be damaging to the thyroid gland. However, in some special cases, this may not always be the right approach.… The post Autoimmune Protocols (AIPs) for Lowering Autoantibodies – May Not Be Right for Every Thyroid Patient appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

I was asked recently to explain my views on the relationship of the T3 thyroid hormone to Cortisol. This is an easy question to ask but an extremely complex one to answer.  It is difficult to answer questions like this in an email or on a forum and provide a good enough understanding in order… The post T3 Thyroid Hormone and Cortisol Relationships Summary appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

Why Thyroid Patients Need to Get Better Faster
Paul Robinson Thyroid Blog
by Paul Robinson
1y ago
I have described hypothyroidism to a lot of people as being the illness that is the ‘death of a thousand cuts’. Hypothyroidism is often a slow process that gradually wears the sufferer down. Sometimes the symptoms just creep up on the person very slowly. They may not even notice the symptoms to begin with. Issues,… The post Why Thyroid Patients Need to Get Better Faster appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

by Paul Robinson
1y ago
I have worked with thousands of thyroid patients over the past fifteen years. In my Recovering with T3 book back in 2011, when the first edition was released, I made it very clear that I believed that it took between 40 and 80 mcg of Liothyronine (T3) to correct hypothyroidism in most thyroid patients who… The post Pharmaceutical Equivalency of Levothyroxine (T4), Liothyronine (T3) and Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT) appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more

Why T3, or Liothyronine, is Usually Taken in Multi-Doses Per Day
Paul Robinson Thyroid Blog
by Paul Robinson
1y ago
I recently heard of someone who was advocating that thyroid patients should take all of their T3-Only medication in one single daily dose. They suggested that this ‘fills the cells and the thyroid receptors’ so that the T3 is then ‘delivered in waves over 24 hours’. Dr John C. Lowe was referred to as a… The post Why T3, or Liothyronine, is Usually Taken in Multi-Doses Per Day appeared first on Paul Robinson Thyroid ..read more
