Wilful blindness or medical negligence in Endocrinology?

Interesting study from 1952 trail of the new Levothyroxine versus the established desiccated thyroid extract. Clinically the patients were still hypothyroid and needing more Levothyroxine but the protein bound iodine levels appeared to show thyrotoxic levels. Sixty four years on, not only are patients refused the effective treatment of natural desiccated thyroid, they’re also having their Levothyroxine doses slashed to keep these godforsaken, non verified thyroid test results in some randomly chosen range.


I’d say medical negligence, what about you?
