Has anyone on this forum published their experience of adding T3 to their T4?

Hi guys,

Out of curiosity, has anyone from this forum published anything about their experience of adding T3 to their medication? There's obviously a lot of us on here unhappy about T3 not being prescribed easily on the NHS. A lot of you are undoubtedly very knowledgeable about the subject and give some great advices. I don't know what I would have done without this group. Other than petitions, I was wondering if there's been any other kind of research or publication by group members. I haven't looked through the old posts, so if this has been asked before, please forgive me for asking.

One of our Advisers and the team were successful in proving that T3 added to T4 was beneficial. Other research teams have found the same. I'll give you a link but you'd have to send a message by clicking on Diogenes' name then select message.

I added T3, against the advice on my endo, around 18 months/2 years ago and it made a vast difference.

It is a lifesaver for many. The Associations have ignored the research by several Research Teams which came to the same conclusion. That some of us need T3 added to T4. They ignore research and the patient suffers.

I am glad you have found it beneficial.

Its a big step to take, and scary. But I have never regretted it.

I was rxd a baby dose of T3 5mcg to be halved to 2.5mcg a day added on to Levo 150mcg that my endo wanted to decrease to 125mcg...only bc I hv a suppressed TSH but normal.TFTs. I didnt decrease so take 150mcg w T3 5mcg (every other day). Yes T3 is an.energizer even at this dose. Your brain function and energy levels will increase in a smoothe not edgy way. It's not expenisive at this low dose.
