Your body is inherently lazy and will take the easy way out. If your body has enough thyroid(whatever) it is, it would produce less. Your body will not differentiate between the synthetic thyroid extract and what it produces. Over a period of time, it could shut down.There is a fine line between too much and too little thyroid function, which is why it is measured in micrograms(mcg) The symptoms for each are near identical and none of them are good.While increased thyroid activity will increase you metabolism, it should not be used to lose weight. It may cause weight loss, but you hair could fall out, among other things.
