Stanford Tests T3 for the Treatment of Fibromyalgia

nav_imageStanford Systems Neuroscience and Pain Lab does it again. Dr. Ian Carroll, MD, MS, and Dr. Jarred Younger, PhD are currently enrolling patients now in a new clinical trial to help fibromyalgia patients. Dr. Younger also worked on Stanford’s research of low dose Naltrexone for the treatment of fibromyalgia.

Stanford says on their site:(via)
“We are investigating whether the thyroid hormone T3 is one such treatment that may alleviate the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. There is significant overlap between the symptoms ofhypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone production), depression, chronic fatigue, and Fibromyalgia. Patients with low thyroid hormone production who have been treated with T3 for depression have had some improvement in symptoms.

This is the first study to examine whether T3 may help with the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Studies such as this are a necessary step to having an investigational drug become a mainstream treatment. Your participation is a vital part of the search for an effective Fibromyalgia treatment.”

To understand how your thyroid works, here’s a great site:www.endocrineweb.com/thyfunction.html

I also found out about Dr. John C. Lowe. Here is a great interview with him about the subject on about.com.

To see any other clinical trials going on, looking at the clinical trials.gov page is always a good place stop.
Look here to see what they have to say about the study.
