I like to run a low dose of t3 for a few months when dieting. Like 50mcg every morning. Would it be better to run maybe 25mcg T3 and 100mcg T4 v.s. 50mcg T3. Its the same total dose of T3 but is there any benefit of using the t4?
I've heard a lot of people with thyroid deficiencies tend to feel better on a t4/t3 blend rather than either hormone alone.
I've also heard a reason people feel sluggish/tired while taking t3 is because t4 is not only important in the conversion to t3, but that also other tissues in the body require t4 to work properly..... or something
As you can see, I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to t4... or even t3 for that matter. Im glad someone started this thread.
Pretty much the same results here. This combo is milder but very effective if you're on GH.
I'm actually using prescription Armour Thyroid. The formula is 38mcg of T4 + 9mcg of T3. I use double the dosage for a daily total of 78mcg T4 + 18mcg T3. So one pill AM, and one pill about 15-20 minutes before bed.
The tabs I have coming i believe are 100mcg t4 and 20mcg t3. I think one per day will be plenty. Thats almost the same as 50mcg T3 and I dont like going over that dose. I'd rather stay lower for longer periods of time, then come off and use around 1g kelp daily with 1500mg L-tyrosine.
