my last two blood works or six months apart and both showed low thyroid levels and I have been having trouble losing fat my doctor prescribe me
thyroxine at 100mcg i’ve been taking one pill in the morning for a month and haven’t noticed any changes in weight maybe even a slight weight gain without really changing my diet is this the same hormone is T3?
Low thyroid definitely runs in my family is anyone else prescribe this when I look it up it appears to be T4

Have you had a complete thyroid panel? If so what were the results.

Might not be a good doc if they didn't order a complete panel including TSH.

Dosing t4 correctly requires multiple bloodwork follow ups and also the drug has to build in your system. If the doc did not explain this you need a new doc.

If your doctor tested TSH only, move along and find a doctor who knows what he/she is doing. Not everyone's body efficiently converts t4 to T3.

It is important to know your free T3, reverse T3, etc. Most doctors will stubbornly insist that if your TSH is in range, you're fine.

No good reason to just take t4. If going to supplement thyroid look to desiccated thyroid as it covers all the base and is natural. Nature-throid, wp thyroid, np, etc.

maybe you should check not only TSH, but also the ability of t4 to t3,averse T3.

My dr ordered a tsh and t4 work... But nothing in regards to t3 or free... Thinking I might get a full panel on my own at the local lab..

Many doctors are ignorant at prescribing the correct thyroid bloodwork. You need
Tsh
Total T4
Free T4
Total T3
Free T3
Reverse T3
T3 uptake
Thyroglobulin Antibodies
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies

And then if there are any issues you can investigate further with
TBG
TSI
Thyrotropin Receptor AB
Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin

Before anyone gets on synthetic thyroid ...

My levels tested low and doc of course wrote a synthroid script... tossed that out and started supplementing tyrosine, selenium and iodine... within 6-8 weeks retest showed normal again!

At the MOST if this isn’t as effective as you’d like then Nature-Throid is an excellent option to try out at low dose...this product supplements T1, T2, T3 and T4 from a dessicated thyroid.
