Diffirence between Eltroxin and Dietroxin
Hello Doc
Me again, thanks for the great advice, I am sure going to follow it, just one question please, my doctor told me she is going to chainge the Eltroxin to Dietroxin, she said the Dietroxin is much better to use when on a diet, because it will not interfere.
Can doc tell me what is the difference and if Dietroxin is safe.
If you Detox before you start with a diet, are your chainge better to lose weight
Thank you doc and enjoy the rest of your day

Dear Tarien
Both medications are indicated for hypothyroidism and should produce the same results. The dr obviously prefers you using Ditroxin, so stick with it. Both products are safe when used for someone who has hypothyroidism. Detoxing is not really necessary. Just start you diet and stick to it and do some exercise.
Have a good day
