Nausea, bloating, gas… is it all from this one problem?
Doctor reveals REAL CAUSE of slow metabolism (hint: relates to thyroid!)
A top U.S. Doctor and researcher has revealed the shocking truth…
The REAL cause of your slow metabolism uncontrolled weight gain has NOTHING to do with diet, exercise, age, or genetics….
But instead is THIS deadly “body setting”
Which, according to a breakthrough latest study published in the Journal of Obesity, is the REAL CAUSE of America’s obesity crisis…
Digestive difficulties — are they caused by low thyroid?
One of the things I normally tell men who are dealing with erections problems and other health issues is…
…how helpful taking thyroid supplements can be for both erections and overall health.
I’ve seen great results with both desiccated thyroid and non-OTC thyroid in small quantities.
Some people take thyroid for reasons like this, and others take it because they have a condition called hypothyroid or low thyroid.
Regardless of my advice, there are a lot of people on thyroid treatments. And they can be very helpful.
But there is something that most people who are on thyroid treatments don’t know.
And that is that popular PPI (proton pump inhibitors) make thyroid treatments MUCH less effective.
These are substances like Prilosec, and they are extremely popular.
What Is Levothyroxine?
The thyroid treatment in question here is called Levothyroxine. It’s used to treat low thyroid (hypothyroidism).
Levothyroxine is used to treat hypothyroidism (condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone). It is also used with surgery and radioactive iodine therapy to treat thyroid cancer. Levothyroxine is in a class of medications called hormones. It works by replacing thyroid hormone that is normally produced by the body.
While this is the substance being studied, my guess is that other thyroid treatments interact with proton pump inhibitors in much the same way.
What is a proton pump inhibitor?
There are many proton pump inhibitors on the market.
They are used to treat acid reflux and come in the brand names: Prilosec, Prilosec OTC, Zegerid, Prevacid, Protonix, Aciphex, Nexium, and Dexilant.
Many people take PPIs for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). By lowering stomach acid levels, they reduce acid reflux into the esophagus and the resulting heartburn symptoms.
Now, I don’t like proton pump inhibitors for many reasons — including the fact that lowering stomach acid production is a bad idea.
There are better ways to deal with GERD and acid reflux (see below)…
But that’s not what this article is about. This article is about how proton pump inhibitors make thyroid treatments less effective.
Proton pump inhibitors can make thyroid treatments much less effective.
If you are taking these two substances together (thyroid treatments and proton pump inhibitors), then you need to watch out.
The PPIs reduce the effectiveness of the thyroid treatments.
They make the thyroid treatments not work as well, which often results in increased strength for the thyroid treatments even when it’s not particularly needed.
The co-‘use’ of levothyroxine and potentially interacting ‘substances’ results in an increased use of levothyroxine. Clinicians should carefully consider adjusting levothyroxine therapy in presence of concomitant ‘substances,’ such as proton-pump inhibitors, which may reduce levothyroxine bioavailability.
Substance interactions happen ALL THE TIME, and it’s not easy to know which substances are causing the problem
That’s because often the problems arrive gradually instead of right away.
If you notice new problems when you add a substance, consider working with your doctor to see if you are experiencing a negative interaction.
Sometimes interactions are surprising and you may have to advocate for yourself and keep pushing until you get answers.
Doctors are great, but they don’t know everything and they are especially bad at figuring out negative interactions, so you need to be paying attention to these for yourself.
This one cheap supplement cleans out the gut, helps the penis???
Men don’t realize that what their penis is doing, depends on their gut…
…because imagine how many toxins and bad fats have accumulated in the gut over the years…
They pile up, causing inflammation and making men’s risks of diseases like diabetes go up.
A bad gut can even hurt a man’s natural penile function.
But you can erase the years of toxins and bad fats in the gut — scrub it out so it’s as clean as a 20-year-olds.
And erections will return like it was decades ago, if not better.
And all you have to do is use this one cheap supplement…
