Thanks for the post. I take 2-3 grams Niacin daily, most days for about a month now. I do have appt. with another NP this week. She is the only one in town who has Wesththyroid. It has taken 5 weeks to get into see her. And I just finished Janie Bowthorpe's Stop The Thyroid Madness. I suspected my hypercholesteremia might be thyroid related. Her book repeats this over and over - wonder why the last NP didn't make the connection????
