Good evening all
I presently take T3 only... long story, was confirmed as being allergic to T4 (levothyorxine) so instead prescribed T3 (liothyronine) only treatment and life has improved since, all the nasty side effects which I experienced on T4 went within around 4 weeks of coming off the medication.
I'm now of an age where I'm thinking about a having a child, however, if being on pure T3 medication meant any risks then I would not pursue it. I've seen two endo's, the first (who wouldn't prescribe me T3 at all) was dead against the idea of a T3 only pregnancy (apparently there hasn't been a single test/study/research of a T3 only pregnancy), he went onto list all the associated risks such as cretinism etc... he put a lot of fear into me so I resigned myself to the fact I would probably be childless.
However, Endo No.2 (who prescribed T3) seemed relaxed about the idea... I'm mixed. There's no way I can tolerate any T4.
I'd love to hear from any mum's who experienced a T3 only pregnancy.
