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

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
