Finding NDT-Friendly Healthcare Practitioners

One challenge you may face is finding a health care provider who is willing to prescribe natural desiccated thyroid (NDT), and manage patients being treated with NDT.

Remember that you're not limited to working with just an MD. Your ideal healthcare provider may be a naturopathic physician (an ND) or an osteopathic physician (a DO). Or, you may find that your best partner for hypothyroidism treatment is a nurse practitioner (NP), or a physician assistant (PA). 

 

If you are interested in finding an NDT-friendly health care provider, some good starting places include:

You can also ask for referrals to NDT-friendly providers in your area, from: 
 

  • local natural pharmacies or health food stores

  • trusted healthcare providers, such as nutritionists or acupuncturists

  • friends or coworkers who already work with integrative or thyroid-savvy providers

There are a variety of databases and lists online to help you identify integrative, holistic, and open-minded practitioners. (Keep in mind that you should always verify ahead of time that the provider is open to working with NDT medications.)
