The Barnes Basal Temperature Thyroid Self–Test:
"Keep a thermometer by your bed at night. When you awaken in the morning place the thermometer under your arm and hold it there for 15 minutes (don't get out of bed and move around first). Keep still and quiet.
"Any motion can upset the reading. A temperature of 97.6 degrees F or lower may indicate under active thyroid. Keep a temperature log for 5 days."—Prescription for Nutritional Healing, Third Edition, Phyllis A. Balch, CNC, and James F. Balch, M.D., Page 451.
Dr. Stepen Langer, M.D., and James F. Scheer write in their book, "If your thyroid function is normal, your temperature sould be in the range from 97.8 degrees to 98.2 degrees Fahrenheit. If it's lower, you are probably hypothyroid—your thyroid gland is under–functioning—and your physical problems and related ones have probably been caused or at least influenced by that. The test should be done on two consecutive days."—Solved: The Riddle of Illness: How to feel great from now on! Second Edition.
Take the average for those days. This will give you a good idea of what's going on. If you are low, this will tell you and your medical care provider that T4 is being converted deficiently to T3, the most active form of the thyroid hormones.
Also, have your doctor perform the Achilles Tendon Reflex Recovery Test. We also suggest a Thyroid Panel (TSH, T4, T3), Thyroid Anti–thyroglobulin Antibody test, and a Reverse T3.
We suggest Cytomel® brand (liothyronine) of thyroid replacement. This is T3, the most active form of thyroid hormone, and Armour® Thyroid containing T4, T3, and T2, and T1 hormones, as found in the human body.
Many endocrine disruptors are causing more havoc with hormone systems, as more chemicals are introduced into our waters and food supplies.
Polyunsaturated oils, such as fish oil, vegetable oils, and speciality oils block thyroid action on tissues as well as slowing down thyroid release from the thyroid gland.
Soy is another known substance that hinders thyroid function. ''Ingestion of soy products and thyroid hormones appear to reduce the absorption of thyroid hormones.'' — Natural Parmacy, June 2001. Soy is in practically everything that is pre–prepared.
Dr. Raphael Kellman, director of the Kellman Center for Proressive Medicine in New York City (212–532–0600)/www.kellmancenter.com, writes in Life Extension, September 2004, p. 58, "I have discovered that many people respond better to Armour® Thyroid, which is desiccated porcine thyroid. A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine claimed greater improvements in mood and brain function with Armour® Thyroid than with Synthroid®." This is the most popular such medication and "... is used by about 8 million Americans."
One reason it is so popular with the medical profession is that it is well–behaved and does not get doctors up in the middle of the night.
Another thing about Syntroid® is that it is all T4. As people age, their deiodinase enzymes often become less active because mineral levels drop from bad food choices and/or food absorption problems. Thyroid hormone (T4), if not broken down to T3 by deiodinase enzymes remain normal in the blood stream and tests show that your hormone levels are normal.
The blood level of thyroid hormones, according to Ward Dean, M.D., Medical Advisor to Vitamin Research News, ''is much less than would be expected from the severity of the symptoms." He writes:
"One reason for the apparent stability of blood levels of T3 and T4 (despite decreased production of T4 by the thyroid) is that the metabolic breakdown of these hormones decreases, as well—thus, helping to maintain stable blood levels of the hormones.
"...The thyroid homeostat paradoxically becomes more sensitive to feed back inhibition with aging—i.e., smaller amounts of T3 and T4 are capable of inhibiting the release of TRH. This is opposite to what occurs in the adaptive and reproductive homeostats with regard to estrogen, progesterone, testerone, cortisol, and insulin. Thus, even though thyroid hormone levels might drop slightly with aging, there is reduced stimulus to produce more TRH (and consequently, reduced stimulus of TSH and thyroxine) due to the increased sensitivity of the hypothalamic thyroid receptors.
"Peripheral receptor sensitivity to thyroid hormone decreases with age. This is another reason why so many older people experience symptoms of hypothyroidism despite having normal or near–normal thyroid hormone blood levels."
The body uses the minerals manganase, magnesium, zinc, and selenium in forming deiodinase enzymes. Also, though one takes thyroid hormone for low thyroid function, the body tissues still need iodine. We recommend Iodoral.
