Thyroid Hormones and Equine Metabolic Syndrome In the main article on equine metabolic syndrome (aka insulin resistance), I mentioned in passing that sometimes thyroid hormone supplementation is used to assist in weight reduction with these overweight, laminitis-prone horses. In this article I thought I’d discuss that in a bit more detail. The thyroid gland First, a brief descriptio
