Myth: Thyroid medicine is poisonous if tests are normal

Thyroid medicine (T4 or T3) is absolutely necessary and something “you’ll probably need for life” one minute if your blood tests are low. Then, the medicine automatically becomes very bad for you the next if your tests are normal.

Wait a minute. Thyroid hormones (T4 or T3) have been floating around in our bodies since birth, and they are absolutely necessary for good health. There is nothing inherently bad about the molecules; they can’t and haven’t directly damaged the tissue of your heart, brain, or other tissues. There is no evidence that suggests that thyroid hormones, when used properly, can damage the body in any way. But of course, thyroid hormones are medicine, and as with all medicines, should be used only under the thoughtful supervision of a doctor. Taking thyroid medicine is not completely without risk, as nothing is.

About the Author:

Denis Wilson, MD developed the concept of Wilson 's Temperature Syndrome in 1988 after observing people with symptoms of low thyroid and low body temperature, yet who had normal blood tests. He found that by normalizing their temperatures with T3 (without T4) their symptoms often remained improved even after the treatment was discontinued.
