Sometimes Natural* is Better
Choosing NP Thyroid®
- NP Thyroid® is an alternative therapy to levothyroxine sodium
- Thyroid hormones act slowly in some parts of the body so it can take several months after treatment is started for symptoms to improve completely3,4
- Periodic monitoring of TSH, T4, and/or T3 levels are necessary to ensure the proper dose is still effective3,4
- If dose is off by a little, it can change your TSH level and possibly cause symptoms4
- If changing the dose of your current thyroid hormone therapy or switching to NP Thyroid® your TSH level should be re-checked in 6 weeks or as directed by your clinician6,8,9
