Some of you may remember that 2008 brought more than a recession – there was a shortage on natural desiccated thyroid (NDT).
Armour Thyroid reformulated their tablets and was off of the market for about 6 months. Even though they’re not my favorite brand, they are still the largest supplier of NDT. When they stopped producing, every other supplier saw a level of demand that they could not keep up with.
Since the Integrative Health Clinic stocks pure WP Thyroid straight from the manufacturer, we stocked up ahead of time so our patients were less likely to run out.
There may be another shortage occurring in 2017. Some of the raw materials used in the production of NDT have been in short supply and pharmacies are already starting to fall behind on many orders.
Please be sure you are stocked up with a 3-6 month supply of your thyroid at all times. We’ve ordered more than we normally need to protect our patients from running out of their medicine.
If you’re due to retest, please do so now and get a good supply of WP Thyroid so any coming shortages don’t set you back.
