    Ursobolic and thyroid med


    Ok I know first response will probably be check with your doc, but I am sure he does not know. so here is the question. Should ursobolic be used by someone on thyroid med? I currently use 150mcg synthroid. I have never had a problem with any supps interfering with meds, just checking to see in anyone had good insight on this one. I have 8 bottles so I am hoping its all good

    Do you take calcium magnesium and vitamin D?

    i dont think it does to be honest.

    i think it will help t3 conversion to be honest.

    try that for a little and see how it goes.

    my thyroid crapped out on me. Put my heart rate to 252 and I spent a week in icu. Then the weight gain started and it has been impossible to get a grip on, the best I can do is maintain, but not lose. I was on 50mcg a day for three years and the weight gain continued and I felt like crap but doc would not increase my med and my tsh stayed anywhere from 3-4.5. My doc died and I started a new one last month. He immediately upped my dose and I feel really good. I am supplementing with vitD, kelp, calcium, magnesium, vit B complex, fish oil and q10 and flouride free tooth paste. I am having my next blood panel in a week. Will probably start ursobolic then if things are looking good. According to the pamplet in the synthroid box, the dose should be 1.7mcg per pound. that would put me over 400mcg a day. Doc said if things did not improve at this dose he would start adding in some t3

    why would low thyroid hormone levels make your heart rate go up?

    It wasnt actually from that. The way the doctor explained it, as the thyroid was essentially dying it was releasing microburst of hormone that overloaded the system and I guess at that time was actually putting me into hyperthyroidism. then the thyroid quit functioning

    any ideas as to why ursobolic could cause headaches. After a few days of use I seem to get a headache that last all day. Going to try to rule a few other things out, but seems to be the cause

    evidence exists that ursolic acid stimulates metabolic uncoupling so you may need to adjust your thyroid meds
