• tca300: I understand this is off topic from what you typically teach, but I was wondering if you have run across any information or learned on your own, things that help people grieve over lost loved ones, and or fear of losing others to death? Thank you!

    Anyone having success on T4 monotherapy or T4 with a little bit of T3?

    If yes, please specify your dose. Common dosages for T4 range from 50 to 200 mcg, which is higher that what I see on this forum. I'm currently doing 75mcg T4 + 25mcg T3.

    Is T4 important?

    Apart from coverting to T3, is there another reason why we need T4?
