I so want to continue to see if this it the magic pill as I don't convert t4 very well, until t3 only I tried everything including armourt3 combo e.g I was recently taking 1350mcg thyroid gold sometimes with t3 and was concerned about the amount I was having to take so thought maybe t3 was the answer

I currently take triyotex 75mcg twice per day (which is meant to be weak and the equivalent of 25mcg of other t3) topping up through the day depending on temperature up to 60mcg per day.

but symptoms -


Weak - climbing stairs isn't fun

Muscle ache


Feeling hot

Sometimes cold

Hair brittle

Look ill


Problems stringing sentances together can't find the words

Feel so bad went to endo he suggests going back on armour at night but then the whole t3 type of treatment is impaired?

Bossbird, have you thyroid results you can post since being on 150mcg Triyotex? You may need to try other brands to find the one which is effective for you. If you had problems with T4 and rT3 it can take up to 14 weeks to clear T4 and rT3 from your system. This happens suddenly and you may find yourself hyper and need to reduce dose by up to two thirds.

Thanks Clutter appreciate you replying I've ordered a different make of t3 to see if it helps after hearing that triyotex is weak and possible confusing to medicate with. another symptom I have which I haven't had since before being diagnosed in my early twenties (took specialists20 years and a lot of my insides removed prior to hashi confirmation) is my Achilles' tendon keeps giving way quite embarrassing and a typical hypo symptom


I would do t3 only, raising until my symptoms improved. You sound thyroid hormone resistant. Shaws, on this forum, has info on how Dr. Lowe used t3..i would contact Shaws ASAP.
