Toward a New Paradigm for Optimal Thyroid Diagnosis and Treatment
A friend sent me this link.
It makes very interesting reading and really shows that the current protocols for managing thyroid hormone issues are so very wrong. The way TSH is currently used is wrong, the way people are treated as if they are all the same is wrong, and simply being 'in range' on levothyroxine monotherapy is not going to guarantee a good outcome.

It is a quite a complex article but well worth the read. Many thanks to my friend Paul Lundy for bringing this to my attention:
