Just bypass the usual pay site that includes Paypal credit card section, and go to my email address: Be sure to state you are a Katrina victim, as there is usual fee of $35 for all others, at the official "Ask The Thyroid Doctor" site on

Here is a two thyroid patient points to remember:

1. The thyroid hormone used to treat hypothyroidism is not an emergency hormone. You have several weeks to get a new supply, without serious effects.

2. However, the drugs used to treat hyperthyroidism such as Graves' Disease have a short life in your body.Tapazole has an 8 hour half life, and PTU is even shorter. This means your condition will worsen after 1-2 weeks. If you are taking one of these drugs, please notify the nearest medical facilities you come to, that you need this drug refilled, if you lost them in the storm surge, or flood.
