  2. What should we do about rT3? - Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield

    You may remember that in order for thyroid hormone to work in controlling our metabolism it has to be converted from the basic, precursor hormone T4 to the active hormone T3. You will also remember that the amino acid thyronine (which is made by two tyrosine molecules coming together) when combined with four iodine atoms is how thyroxine is formed (which we know for short as T4). Then one of the three 5: deiiodinase enzymes removes one of the iodiio atoms and forms T3 (triiodothyronine or liothyronine), ...

  5. Off T3

    Well as said before Ive tried T4 + T3 combo, it worked for as long as I was taking it for. Just to experiment, I dropped off the T3 a week ago. Just slept for 10 hours straight, then weighed myself and Im 4lb up
    Im going to go back onto the T4/T3 combo just for next week as I have an Endo appointment on the 17th, so giving the T3 a chance to exit my system prior to appointment.
    My current meds are 250 T4 when taking T3 Im usually on 40mcg, so just under the 5:1 ratio. ...
