So, I made the jump from prescribed Levothyroxine, to self-sourcing another thyroid medicine, called NDT (Natural Desiccated Thyroid).

Self-sourcing medication is risky, and so has to be done as safely as possible. You have to acknowledge that there are risks involved, especially if you don’t follow advice and protocols set by a doctor for example, but it has changed my life around, and has done for many other thousands of thyroid patients.

NDT is available on prescription in the UK. The problem is getting a doctor to give you that prescription in the first place, which can be hard. Because of this, I made the difficult decision to self-source, but you must be aware that my GP supports me being on this thyroid medication and manages my dosing and management of it.

Please exhaust all ways of having a medical professional prescribe this thyroid medication for you, before looking at obtaining it without a prescription. I still hope to have mine prescribed one day.

You can read about my journey on switching from Levothyroxine to NDT, on the links below, where I checked in regularly over the course of a year:
