    Hypo Support Formula or HSF in place of Cytomel

    http://www.thyroidscience.com/Latest...ions/index.htm

    Dr Lowe has been doing a study on something called HSF which is made by the same labs that produce Westhroid and I have never heard of it, cannot even get it up on their site. Anyway if you go into the study it sounds quite good for people taking T3 or needing a combo.

    I am interested in this formulation and why we have never heard of it before?

    lotsa luv

    I got the impression that it is a fairly new thing, if its OK it could be the next good thing since sliced
    bread, PROVIDED it doesn't come too expensive. There is to be another report soon, we may learn more
    then.

    Can't wait Ginny. I feel I might have high RT3 due to my chronic state of health regardless of the hc which I know I need anyway.
    I would really be interested in trying this stuff, hope the study isn't too long away
    luv dawnx

    I asked my Endo to check RT3 and he simply refused to do it saying it's no good and they dont have this test available anyway on NHS?

    Is it true?

    The fact that it is no good is a matter of opinion.
    If done with FT3 and the correct ratio is worked out properly then it can certainly explain a lot of symptoms because in effect you are getting low T3 to the tissues due to their occupation by excess levels of its mirror image. I feel it is a worthwhile test for someone who is well medicated on a combo or thyroxine only to see why they are having ongoing symptoms. Whether it is available on the NHS I simply don't know this.
    Thyroid UK has a lab listed that does it but they don't do it along with FT3 however you can work the ratio out yourself if you have it with their full thyroid panel, for me though it is too expensive to buy both, the RT3 test alone is 60.
    So whether he told the truth? You would have to investigate about the test on the NHS, and as for whether or not it is any good? I think that is definately a matter of opinion, there is definately research where it is successfully used to detect low T3 syndrome.

    lotsa luv
