looks like Dave is still on the desiccated thyroid (Oct 2016)...
from reading the transcript of the recent podcast 'Solving the Hypothyroid Epidemic with Elle Russ – #353' https://blog.bulletproof.com/elle-russ-353/
i get the impression that Dave will keep taking desiccated thyroid for the rest of his life (currently taking Westhroid)... ie. it does not sound like he has any plans to get off it.
He does mention that he has (or had) Hashimoto's.
here is a little bit of the transcript:
Dave: Okay. That could have been it. What I do now, that’s been stable for years, I do westhroids. I do a grain … one grain in the morning, which is a natural mix of T4 and T3. Then, I do a quarter grain at night, which is way less than I used to take. I’m probably down 75% from my max dose. My Hashimoto’s antibodies are gone, but I still have slightly deficient thyroid function. I feel pretty damn good, to be honest.
Elle: Well, you know, maybe you need a quarter grain increase somewhere.
Dave: Yeah. I could play around with it.
& re the Hashimoto's, "Dave: I did have Hashimoto’s. It’s gone now. "
fake it till you make it
