Cut Down On Your Pork Life
A brief message for the good people who've come here looking for evidence of whether Thyrin ATC works. You'll probably have read this from Consumer Health Digest, which doesn't to us look like particularly impartial and sound material.
But we should stress that we have absolutely no time for any diet supplements whatsoever. This stems in part from our belief, upon which we've expounded earlier, that making up ailments is the first step in any snake oil salesman's repertory. And yes, as a professional victim of Hashimoto's disease we're rather wary of encouraging amateurs in their delusions.
But we doubt that a mysterious combination of minerals can boost one's thyroid function. If you think it's low, ask your doctor to check for thyroid function, and if necessary you can take a prescription hormone supplement. If you're not insured, our sympathies. This stuff is all free in the Old Country. But we certainly haven't seen any side effects in our seventeen years of taking the hormone.
We can see the attraction of the thyroid gland to supplement manufacturers, since it has a hazy effect upon metabolism, and is fairly hard to regulate. A perfect little insecurity to play upon. But our advice is get a blood test or go for a goddamn run. Or try the magic gut-shrinking pills from Relacore. Only three magic beans for a month's supply.
On the other hand, we also suggest a Technorati search, which is where any blogger daft enough to try Thyrin is likely to show up.
Anyway, that's quite enough personal information for one day. Coming up, why we gave up Gothamist for lent.
