Technical Data

USP Thyroid Powder is Desiccated thyroid, also known as thyroid extract. This is derived from the thyroid gland, from swine (porcine source) for medical use. It is used to treat hypothyroidism in human medicine and has other applications. Chemically this is a mixture of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).

In addition to hypothyroidism, USP Thyroid Powder is also used to treat Hashimoto's thyroiditis, General health, fibromyalgia and fatigue.

In general, this is a natural alternative to Levothyroxine. Desiccated thyroid has been used since the late 1800s and is available as a generic medication. The use of desiccated thyroid is usually accompanied with the practice of dosing according to symptoms instead of dosing to achieve "ideal" lab results (e.g. serum levels of TSH). While there is debate as to what the ideal serum levels are, dosing according to symptoms often results in higher dosages. Most endocrinologists are opposed to these higher dosages as there may be risks of hyperthyroidism and osteoporosis.

Although desiccated thyroid extract is less widely used than synthetics, studies showed that many patients preferred Thyroid Powder as compared with levothyroxine. Studies found that the people taking DTE were happier with their treatment and their doctors than people on the other two types of therapy. The studied also reported fewer problems with memory, weight, fatigue, and energy than the other two groups.
