To Dr. Cinque:
I read your article about diuretics at your website a couple days ago, at just the right moment to prevent me from accepting a prescription and beginning to use the pills instead of implementing optional methods such as you suggested.
Do you have an archive of articles anywhere online? I am particularly interested to know if you have personally written about hypothyroidism and about taking hormone prescriptions (Synthroid, for example).
From Dr. Cinque:
Brenda, I don't think I have written about it, but I agree with the many doctors who say that it's better to take the desiccated thyroid, rather than Synthroid. Either Armour or another brand. Once you reach the point in life that you need it, you need it. And I wouldn't fight it. It is NOT like taking diuretics. There is no comparison between the two. So, find a doctor who will prescribe the natural desiccated thyroid for you, and I really think it is the better alternative. And, I stand by every word I wrote about diuretics. They are terrible drugs that do nothing but hide problems, not fix them. Dr. Cinque
