Prolonged use of T3
A reasonably intelligent doctor would realize what was going on and see that T4 was normal or only very slightly depressed, and that TSH was normal. Serum t3 is rarely tested for anyway, so I seriously doubt this plan would fly.
Thyroid hormone is so cheap I would rather just do it on my own if I wanted to supplement, rather than dealing with the constant lab work that would be ordered to make sure T is normalized, and having a record on my insurance that I had a chronic illness
Re: Re: Prolonged use of t3
I would think it easier to simply restrict carb intake (100grms or less) for several days before your intended blood tests. This should send your T-3 levels crashing, yes?
Yes. But T4 levels would be normal.
Keto diets(Or carb restricted diets downregulate the deiodinase enzyme responsible for cleaving off an iodine molecule from the T4 and making it into T3)
The Doc would think you have ESS.
I don't think he would prescribe T3. Most docs don't. He'd probably go the T4 route.
If I want to add flavor to my cooking. . . . . . . I just burn it

nandi you ran T3 at 100 micro for 4 month? no problem? and how you eat?
if i use t4 at 100-200 i'm sure that i don t have problem?
nandi is no longer with us. 200mcg of t4 is ~=50mcg T3 so should not be a problem.
i'm sorry for nandi...it seems very preparated.
so if i run 100-200 micro T4 for 2-4 months isn't a problem...thanks!
i tshould not be a problem, what is your objective?
in the first month is lose a little bit of fat (with aerobic and anaerobic activity), a good diet, rich in protein and vegetables whit a day rich in carboidrates. in the second-third month is not gain a lot of fat because i can't training and probably i can't eat very well.
but i try to run 100 metres (amatorial) it's a problem?
