I self-medicate with t3, 50mcg daily in 4 doses, my free t3, was only 3.7, range is 4-8.3, according to Thyroid uk, but the endos won't prescribe it here in Newcastle no matter what, I feel much more normal now.
I take my 125mcg T4 at night, so nothing to disturb it, and my coffee in the morning, together with my 1 tbs Kerrygold butter, some say yeuck, I say lovely!!
Just a thought, ldl or low density lipoprotein, and hdl high density lipoprotein are not cholesterol, most people make that mistake. It's all in the above article, I also fell into the same trap.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance made in the liver, and sometimes in foods. Cholesterol is carried in the blood via the the HDL and the LDLs, but as I have said the latter are not cholesterol in themsleves. Most people think that they are cholesterol.
Seems that a substance called Cafestol, can raise the cholesterol levels, and filtering stops that, so seems a good idea to get filters, to remove the oils.
