Thyroidine is prescribed (in relatively small doses) with insufficient thyroid function and (in higher doses) with excessive thyrotropic function of the pituitary gland.

Since the use of thyroidin in thyroid hypothyroidism is a substitution therapy, the effect of which lasts only during the administration of the drug, it is necessary to take the drug systematically throughout life.

In cases of moderate hypothyroidism, 0.1 thyroidin is prescribed daily and every other day.

Children of the first years of life are given 0.05-0.1 thyroid per day, schoolchildren for 0.1-0.2 per day.

The attending physician should select the optimal dose of the drug in each case.

When endemic goiter is recommended, thyroidin is 0,05-0,1 per day or every other day, which does not cause signs of thyrotoxicosis and can be used for a long time (OV Nikolaev, 1961).

In case of obesity, thyroidin is prescribed in doses up to 0.4-0.6 per day in combination with diet, unloading days, and physical exercises.

The drug is also used for edema, regardless of their origin (renal, cardiac, etc.). In the mechanism of this action, direct influence on the pituitary mechanism of diuresis is important. Cardiac patients require caution when taking medication.

With nephrosis, developmental lag and some forms of hypotrophy in children, the drug also benefits.

In tetany, the combination of thyroidin and parathyroidin has a beneficial effect, increasing the release of phosphorus and calcium in urine and feces and increasing the content of these elements in the blood.
