Thyroid Problems/Thyroid meds and bone loss


Abbvie labs reports a connection between long term synthroid use and bone loss. If this is true please explain or tell me where I can more information on the subject.
Thank you,

Here is a link to an article that explains this issue, I had to look it up myself. They reference the research.

Endocrinologists also work with bone loss and should take this into consideration when medicating.

Questions pertaining to the holistic treatment of thyroid disorders including nutrition and supplementation for Hashimoto's, hypo and hyper thyroidism. Questions relating to Lab tests and proper lab testing for thyroid conditions as well.


As a functional medicine focused practitioner the majority of my practice has focused around Thyroid conditions. I help people to switch to less toxic medications through educating their prescribing physician, support thyroid function with diet/nutrition and natural supplementation as well as educate the patient on support for other systems effected by Thyroid disorders.

Many patients come in to me having been on medications for years still feeling horrible from their condition but told they are "fine" based on lab testing. Other's come to me after having had their "thyroid checked many times over the years and it's normal" to find that many doctors are not properly running lab tests to determine if people have an auto immune attack to their thyroid or looking at more than just TSH levels which checks your pituitary function.
