    Hi Jam - I read that bentofiamine acts differently in the body than straight thiamine, so I really don't know if increasing the dose of bentofiamine would have the same effect on the thyroid as plain thiamine. My guess is that they would act differently, but I just don't know.

    I felt somewhat jittery again this morning, sort of like I had extra coffee, which I didn't, and suddenly I thought of my thyroid. I checked my body temp and it was 97.8 - high for me. Usually it's around 96, even though I take 2 grains of Naturethroid a day. Actually I noticed the jittery feeling the first time I took thiamine a few weeks ago, but didn't think of my thyroid then, but now think it may have boosted my thyroid from the get go. I may have to cut back on my Naturethroid, which would be a good thing!

    Hi Jam - I didn't feel jittery until I started the thiamine. I think it is boosting my thyroid, and caused my body temp to go up. I'm going to cut back a little on my Naturethroid and see what happens.

    If you started the bentofiamine, maybe it helped your thyroid and helped raise your body temp, or maybe not. Again, I don't know how it would compare to regular thiamine.

    I take selenium too, have done for several years per Dr. Taylor ....

    Good luck!

    Yes, if thiamine is Vitamin B1, it boosted my thyroid function also.
    But too much was bad for me. The dose had to be just right, like so many things.
    Best wishes!

    Yes, I started taking Thiamine last year and it helped my stomach problems incredibly. Probably better than almost anything else except Glutamin and Probiotics.
