I would say the gut is the problem most of the time. Gut problems overload the liver. However gut problems are connected to thyroid underactivity as well.Maybe because almost no one has a thyroid issue. Perhaps everyone has a crappy liver that cannot work at full capacity... If indeed the liver is mostly what is making it "active thyroid hormone..."
99% of health problems go back to problems with the thyroid or endotoxin overloadI would say the gut is the problem most of the time. Gut problems overload the liver. However gut problems are connected to thyroid underactivity as well.
I strongly disagree that "almost no one has a thyroid issue". Very high TSH and very low T3/T4 can not be explained by overloaded liver.
But couldn’t a temporary but long enough thyroid replacement regimen have long-lasting/permanent improvements in regards to endotoxin/liver health? Assuming one maintains their diet, etc.99% of health problems go back to problems with the thyroid or endotoxin overload
? don't be so vague. A healthy metabolism that supports the cognitive function necessary to make proper lifestyle and dietary choices is the first line of defense against any harmful health condition or intermediaryGo back to basics and check the definition of endotoxins.
yes fam, its same as me, thyroid were accumulated in the serum unused with high rt3, now starting t3 onlyI've been trying T3/T4 for 1,5 year now - been following Danny Roddys and Ray Peats recommendations.
Trying different brands, different ratios etc.
No success in increasing temps or pulse, even on high dosages.
It has impacted my blood work though:
TSH has dropped from 3.4 mIU/L to <0.010.
T3, free has raised from 5.9 pmol/L to 8.3.
T4, free has raised from 11 pmol/L to 13.
Testosterone has raised from 12 nmol/L to 19.
But I feel no difference then before taking thyroid.
Thinking of trying pure T3.
I am diagnosed with CFS and as I understand some patients with CFS have had great results with pure T3:

If you where going to take pure T3 for CFS - how would you take it?
Been saying this lately as well. T3 is king. When you're hypothyroid, T4 is likely to convert to reverse t3 which has antimetabolic effects. I don't think lack of T4 is the problem for someone who follows Peat's guidelines and has adequate vitamin D and other micronutrient levels. So taking T4 can be counterproductive. I plan on taking 12.5mcg of T3 with breakfast/dinner daily, so one cynomel tablet per day.

First of all, 2 weeks is very little time to draw conclusions When someone is prescribed T4 medication, it takes several weeks for the dose and effects to stabilise.Switching from T4/T3 (I started thyroid over two weeks ago) to T3 solo I started to gain way more benefits compared to both
All is stable now. Everything is going smoothly for me (good temps/pulse) in regards to thyroid dosing since making this post.First of all, 2 weeks is very little time to draw conclusions When someone is prescribed T4 medication, it takes several weeks for the dose and effects to stabilise.
What works in the short term does not necessarily work in the long term. You will soon realise this.
