My history with NDT medication (Natural Desiccated Thyroid) has been long and complicated at best! I originally switched to self-sourced NDT from prescribed Levothyroxine in late 2015. But by July 2019, I had moved from self-sourced NDT to privately prescribed NDT.

Self-sourcing medication is risky. There is no way around that. You have to acknowledge that there are risks involved, especially if you don’t follow advice and protocols set by a medical professional for example, but it has changed my life around, and has done for many other thousands of thyroid patients.

NDT medication is available on prescription in the UK. The problem is actually getting a doctor to give you that prescription in the first place, which can be hard. This very rarely happens on the NHS. Because of this, I made the difficult decision to self-source my NDT originally as I could not afford to go private, but years later was able to finally get it via private prescription. All of the below links follow this journey.
