A little over a month ago I started on T3 only therapy after trying T4 and natural thyroid hormone for about 2 years (with little long term effects). I have Hashimoto’s with usually low T3 values (lowest within range) and low within range T4 and TSH. Symptoms included weight gain, hair loss, measured low metabolism, low body temperature, extreme fatigue, brain fog, hypoglycemia and Reynaulds syndrome. I also have another autoimmune disease to complicate matters.
I started with 12,5 ug per day (in 2 doses) and worked up to about 50 ug (divided in 4x 12,5 ug). The effect on my energy levels, brain fog, blood sugar levels and overall appearance (less puffy face) has been great. However I have 2 problems. First one is that I get very cold right after taking T3 with also extremely cold hands. It has gotten a little better over time but not much. The second problem is that now after a month I started losing a lot of hair. What am I doing wrong? Is my dose too low or too high? Any tips would be very welcome!!!
