“The better informed the patient is, the better the results”
-Neil Nathan, MD
I have been treating Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome for almost 7 years now, and it has become an increasingly significant part of my practice. When I first started, I used cytomel, but found that in its usual form it gave variable results. For some time now I’ve used exclusively compounded long-acting T3 with much better improvement. I have found a significant percentage of patients with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue (I’d estimate at 50%) have Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome and respond dramatically to treatment.
I have also noted that the better informed the patient is, the better the results and the easier it is to treat them. I encourage all to read Dr. Wilson’s book and many have read the Physician’s Manual as well. While not everyone who comes to me gets treated for Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome (some never took their temperatures and when they do, their symptoms are not compatible with thryoid deficiency), the vast majority do get treated as a component of a program that reflects their needs.
Other concurrent deficiencies which I measure and treat which are very common with Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome, include magnesium deficiency, estrogen and progesterone deficiency, B-12 deficiency, chronic candidiasis, food allergy, and mercury toxicity. I have treated hundreds and hundreds of patients who have normal thryoid blood tests and low tempertures, and it is my impression, that without thyroid supplementation as outlined by Dr. Wilson, most of them would have remained ill for years.
There is no question in my mind that Dr. Wilson has identified a significant metabolic problem (mostly unrecognized by conventional physicians) and that by treating it, we have alleviated a great deal of suffering.
