NP Thyroid® (Thyroid Tablets, USP): Understanding the Options for Management of Hypothyroidism

For the majority of patients seeking treatment for hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, levothyroxine (LT4) monotherapy is the recommended first line treatment. However, many patients remain symptomatic despite achieving normal lab values and thyroid function tests. There is a growing body of clinical evidence that suggests certain subsets of patients with hypothyroidism, such as those with genetic polymorphisms of the D2 deiodinase gene, may benefit from combination therapy with both T4 and T3. This product theater will provide a synopsis of the management of hypothyroidism with combination therapy as well as an overview of NP Thyroid, which is a natural desiccated porcine thyroid extract containing both T4 and T3 indicated for thyroid hormone replacement in hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
