Metabolic Effects of Liothyronine Therapy in Hypothyroidism: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Crossover Trial of Liothyronine Versus Levothyroxin

This is another study that I missed from 2011, I am finding it impossible to catch them all. This is in line with Prof. Wiersinga's comments. I'll have to cross check and see if it is one he mentioned. PR

  • I couldn't access the page.

  • shaws, I just tried the link and didn't have any problems so I'm not sure why you are. I'd give it a few hours and try tomorrow. PR

  • I read it. It says,on T3 you can lose weight and lower cholesterol. It does not have an adverse affect on the heart. Did I read that right,hope so. I shall print it off and give it to my endo.x

  • beaton, yes, T3 is an effective modality although don't expect doctors to believe it. The wheels of medical science grind ever so slowly. PR
