So I have ultra high RT3. Endo and Dr think likely my bacteria due to a massive haul on Anti Biotics and a sluggish Liver.

 

So recently I started a T3 only protocol. Its very hard at first. I received a high pulse at times and a low pulse at others. The same with blood pressure. Make sure you consult your Dr, a holistic one if need be.

 

I would promote not doing this alone, (or via internet groups). There are really good Drs out there.

Plus you are potentially covered by insurance (although I couldnt assure that one every lol).

It is scary and you really need support.

 

I think Im about half way there now.

Jenny V had success.  She's a Mod - 


Free T-4 and Free T-3 are absolutely necessary to properly dose yourself.
My experience is that 1/2 - 3/4 of range is your goal for optimal treatment

My Journey... 7 years to receive a diagnosis. TT 2004 after 4.5 years on Tapazole that had to be adjusted monthly - endo ran labs every 4 weeks. Remission was never going to happen for me so I opted for surgery to remove. Final DX by surgeon was Hashitoxicosis, TPO antibodies over 2000 and TSI 316% within the year prior to surgery. I never had a ultrasound or any lab testing to rule out cancer - pathology was negative. Post surgery I was kept hypo for many years - until I figured out how to dose my self, relying on where I fell in the FT-4 and FT-3 labs. I run TSH below range due to positive TBII antibodies. Horrible time adjusting to addition of Cytomel = patience pays off when adding this drug to the mix.

The happy ending ---> Stable dose since 1/10 Unithroid 125mcg, Cytomel 12.5mcg - labs I can live with.
