The disagreement has surfaced among more than five thousand members of the Thyroid Discussion Group on Facebook.
But the group of sufferers who support each other on a daily basis were sceptical over the doctor’s enthusiastic backing of the drug on Fox News – he said ‘levothyroxine just replaces the thyroid and the patient is back to normal. It’s a great, great medication’.
