Thyroid Treatment:

Some Patients Need the Biologically Active Hormone T3 in Order to Recover from Hypothyroidism

I was misdiagnosed for 20 plus years.  I was always told I was borderline hypothyroid.    Borderline always meant that no doctor would treat me.

Jump ahead 20 years and I finally got a diagnosis when my TSH was 7.23 and my Free T3 and Free T4 were at the bottom of their reference ranges.

I asked for a NDT but my doctor refused, saying he wanted to see how I did on T4 (Synthroid / Levothyroxine), first.  But 6 months later I still felt awful, my Free T4 was up and my Free T3  never budged from when I was first diagnosed.

Obviously I wasn’t converting T4 to T3.

At that point my doctor put me on a combination of synthroid/ cytomel .   Things got a little better but I was still feeling VERY hypo.

I asked to go on T3-Only for a trial and he denied me,  so I fired him!

I found out how to get T3 myself and have been self-treating ever since.

My hypothyroidism symptoms are gone. I now have my life back, after 20+ years!

T3 is the only thing I will take for my thyroid.

It works!

Why wouldn’t it?

T3 is the biologically active thyroid hormone our bodies need.
