    Did I make a mistake by getting T3 only?

    I placed an order from the Mexican pharmacy a few days ago and they already shipped it! Most likely because I paid extra for fast shipping. The thing is, I only bought Cynomel (T3). I’ve had hypo symptoms for so many years and I’m finally taking the plunge into thyroid medicine. Thinning hair...

    Day 7 of thyroid supplementation, few questions

    Hello all, I have been taking T4/T3 (2:1 ratio) for seven days now, slowly titrating up. I began with 3 mcg T3 and 6 mcg T4 once daily and now am up to triple both doses on day 7 (too fast?), split into three doses throughout my day. I have upped my calories and I am including as many nutrients...

    Protein and saturated fats beneficial, PUFA detrimental for thyroid

    A good new study, which again confirms that saturated fat is anything but detrimental to our health. Most of the studies until now demonstrating improved thyroid function from saturated fat used coconut oil, and that has led to attacks from mainstream medicine that this pro-thyroid and healthy...

    One of the best TRT alternatives (natural potent stack)

    Going on TRT can be a challenging decision. How long are you going to be on? How are you going to get off? Do you want to get off? What about fertility, risks, success rate, etc? I'm not trying to say TRT shouldn't be an option, but want to give an alternative. Fixing hypogonadism naturally is...

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/26374392/ Has anyone come across this study before? I don't have access to the full study but it would appear cinnamon lowers circulating levels of T3. Based on the keywords, I believe Ceylon cinnamon was used. The human equivalent dose, about 65mg per kg, is...

    Uncoupling increases T3

    It has long been shown that T3 increases uncoupling ,but this study shows that it also works vice versa : Uncoupling (through BAT activation) increases deiodinase type 2 ,which catalyzes T4 toT3 conversion . This should create a positive feedback loop. If you uncouple your metabolism with...
