A brand new year is upon us and I live in hope that I can be renewed too. My question above is directed at those taking T3 alone like myself. I have now been taking T3 only for the last two yrs roughly and whilst I definitely feel better than I did on thyroxine it has done nothing to reverse my dry skin issues, straw hair and puffiness of the tissues. I suppose in many ways I feel this is as good as it gets and perhaps the damage has been done for so long that it is irreversible now.( I was diagnosed hypo in 2001) I am not overweight, if anything I'm a bit underweight possibly due to me being a stressed out type. But I don't look well and it does get me down.
Is there any success stories out there? Is it that I'm just not taking enough T3? I am on roughly 40mcg daily and weigh just under 8 stone. Sometimes I wonder if the T3 has a lasting effect on reversing thyroid starved tissue if it leaves the body so quickly? Can anyone elaborate on that?
