Question
Posted by: Anon | 2007/11/27

Eltroxin

a friend of mine is obsessive about her weight! she has BMI of 27. she confessed to me that she stole ELTROXIN from her mom's, even though bloodtests have shown that her own Thyroid is okay and that she is scared, but wants to drink it . Her sister has an over-active thyroid and she wants to be as skinny as her sister.

what advise can I give her? is it save to drink it for weight loss?

Dear Anon
Absolutely not - she can develop permanent thyroid damage which will leave her with a non-functioning thyroid.
