    How can I find a doctor that will treat my hypothyroidism most likely caused by Hashimoto’s more aggressively? I felt best when I was taking desicrated pig thyroid and was able to keep my weight in better check and felt better. It was through a compounding pharmacy with name brand of Westhroid. I’ve experienced many very stressful life events in the last 3 or so years that also may be contributors to worse health. I live in Wichita KS. Thank you!
