Manage your thyroid health better.
Do you want to improve your energy, focus, digestion, or sleep quality? Boost Thyroid can help with any or all of these goals. You can now measure how your diet, physical activity or treatment impact nine of the most common symptoms experienced in hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s.
Record and keep track of your thyroid blood lab tests: thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), free triiodothyronine (fT3), free thyroxine (fT4), reverse triiodothyronine (rT3), thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPOAb) and thyroglobulin antibody (TGAb). Set reminders to take your medication on time and get information about the latest research.
WE BUILD WITH SCIENCE
We used peer-reviewed scientific research on autoimmune conditions to build our app.

THE SCIENCE OF AUTOIMMUNE THYROIDITIS (HASHIMOTO’S)
Autoimmune conditions are on the increase in the past 50 years, mostly because of the industrialized world diet and lifestyle.
People with autoimmune diseases experience many recognized food sensitivities .
Science increasingly recognizes the need for personalized approaches and for good communication between patients and doctor to better manage the condition.

BENEFITS OF MANAGING YOUR UNDERACTIVE THYROID
Increase productivity by reducing stress, poor digestion, low energy or bad sleep.
Taking medication on time is important. Quantifying how treatment works for you will help you learn what is your “good” zone. Adapting to the right lifestyle can prevent many health complications.
There are no miracles or shortcuts; there is science. Science can make it easier for you -- and we know science.

Worst update yet - BMR FEATURE Fail
So this new version has fully implemented the mysterious BMR feature, which purports to tell you how many calories you should eat to lose the weight you've gained from being hypothyroid. It's a low number of course because the illness lowers your metabolism. It estimates this feature solely from age, height & weight, irrespective of thyroid hormone dose. Since the WHOLE GOAL of medical treatment is to give you enough hormone to return your metabolism to normal, unless the app takes dosage into account, this estimated number is useless & even anxiety promoting. We hypothyroid people are anxious enough already. When I was diagnosed my Endo told me specifically to STOP DIETING because it's stressful to the thyroid & of itself lowers metabolism. So this app wants me to eat less than 1000 calories a day. I'm supposed to raise my metabolism with medicine but tank it by ultra-low calories dieting? A better way to check metabolism - which we want to increase not decrease - would be daily body temperatures. Temperatures should replace this horrible BMR feature. Once I have my medicine dosage right, my metabolism will return & my body will go back to maintaining its natural weight setpoint. This app has lost the plot with this feature. And what's worse, I can't even turn it off! Please fix. Ty.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback tangogirlny,
Our BMR feature is fresh in the app, and we will soon follow with more information, in the meantime, you can read more on our blog: https://medium.com/boosted/thyroid-weight-and-bmr-cbecf52ed667
We are currently working on improving the technology of our bot. It is not meant to mimic human conversation, but to give you a basic set of knowledge on the thyroid and autoimmunity.
And of course, we are working on additional features, which you might find useful for your daily logging.
Thank you again for a very constructive feedback, and wishing you a great rest of the week!

Very very helpful
I’m excited to be using this app. It’s easy to use and has helpful information. This has been a scary journey for me and my health to find something that helps track and ease my stress have been wonderful. The developer are great communicators. I’ve had question and suggestions and the developer has responded with 24 hours or less each time. If you have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s I recommend this app as a staging place.
A much-needed app for thyroid
My sister recommended it to me and I find it really helpful for tracking symptoms, especially as someone newly diagnosed. Will bring to my next doctor appointment. Looking forward to seeing future updates.
