Self-treatment

Thyroid UK’s first and most important priority is the safety of our members and therefore, we do not advocate or encourage self-treatment with thyroid hormone replacements.

Taking thyroid medication, especially Liothyronine (T3) or natural thyroid hormone (NDT), Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT), without being monitored by a clinician can be very dangerous – especially if there is hidden heart disease.

Whilst we understand that self-treatment does occur and equally understand why people find it necessary, Thyroid UK cannot be seen to be advocating it.

We are working towards a future where people will not have to resort to self-treatment. In order to do this, we must be seen to be professional and above reproach.
