Has anybody noticed different effects of different supplies of T3. In February 2017 I started taking uni Pharma T3 at 12.5 µg per day. I had been seeing Dr Toft for several months but he refused to supply me with either T3 or NDT. I felt fantastic within a few weeks of taking the T3 my total my total T3 went from 1.4 to 2.2 the range 0.9–2 .5. I really did feel fantastic but my TSH went from 3.01 to 0.01 range 0.35-5.00. Dr Toft was not happy that my TSH was so low. He then prescribed SANOFI THYBON 20 HENNING T3 and told me to cut the pill in half and take 10mcg a day and said he wasn't sure the T3 from Greece was safe. After 8 weeks my T3 dropped to 1.6 and my TSH 0.03. I felt very underactive .
I saw Dr Toft again 8 weeks later and he said to carry on 10mcg of T3 and he then prescribed PERRIGO T3 which come in 5mcg tablets so I could take them twice a day. My T3 levels have remained consistent at 1.4 and my TSH has remained consistent at 0.02 to date. I have felt terrible my hair has been falling out I have been extremely breathless and feel underactive . Dr Toft has assured me that this is not a thyroid related he will not increase my T3 and is happy with my results as they are.although he would like my TSH to be around 1.00.
To be honest both types of T3 that doctor Toft have subscribed have made me feel no difference whatsoever. There are days I have felt that they might even be Placebo . Two weeks ago in desperation I started taking Uni-Pharma T3 at 12.5 split in half over the day and I have had loads of energy and the most important thing Is my breathlessness has gone and I have felt more alert. I could barley get up the stairs now I am running up them.
So my question is has anybody had either of the brands I have mentioned and have they seen a difference? My husband did a experiment taking the same amount of each brand over three days. He said he saw no difference in the SANOFI OR PERRIGO T3 but felt slightly hyper on the UNI-PHARMA T3. I did not tell him which one he was taking over the three days until after the experiment.
I shall have my bloods done again in eight weeks and let you know if my T3 levels have gone up.
Thanks in advance for any feedback .
