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 any 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 NDT has changed my life around, and has done for many other thousands of thyroid patients. I can’t deny that.

NDT medication is available on prescription in the UK and is widely available in other countries such as the US. The problem we have is actually getting a doctor to prescribe the medication in the first place, which can be hard. This very rarely happens on the NHS in the UK. Read about the complicated history here.

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.

You can read about my journey on switching from Levothyroxine to NDT, on the links below, where I check in regularly:
