Surfer376. I was interested in your success with adding cytomel to your t4 medication. Did you seriously notice a difference in how you lost weight? I have been dieting for 6 weeks. Initially I lost 5 pounds (which was water weight from being bloated) and then. nothing. I have been so careful on my diet but it doesn’t seem to make a difference. Nothing I do makes my weight change so I was thinking of adding some t3 (cytomel) to the mixture. ) How long did it take before you noticed weight loss? Did you notice any other positive changes? I find I have a very hard time feeling comfortable temperature wise. I am always hot/cold hot/cold. I hate it. anyway. I will wait to hear back form you. )
The persistence of clinical and laboratory evidence of hypothyroidism in spite of adequate dosage replacement indicates either poor patient compliance, poor absorption, excessive fecal loss, or inactivity of the preparation. Intracellular resistance to thyroid hormone is quite rare.
T3 was originally formulated as a medicine by way of an extract from the thyroid gland. Many hormonal medicines originated in the same way, as being derived from the endocrine glands from the cadavers of animals and humans. The very first application of this thyroid extract was administered in 1981 to an individual who suffered from myxedema, which is a skin disorder that is normally the result of hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones were some of the very first hormonal medicines used in the field of endocrinology and in the treatment of many disorders and diseases. The very first thyroid extracts not only contained T3, but also T4, and these extracts were utilized for over 60 years in medicine. In the 1950s, methods of creating thyroid hormones synthetically took over and the previously used thyroid extracts were done away with. Liothyronine Sodium (T3) and Levothyroxine Sodium (T4) are the two most popular currently used synthetic thyroid hormones, and are widely available both in the United States as well as internationally. Cytomel tends to be the most widely utilized and most recognized brand name of T3, especially in the United States. In The USA, Cytomel is manufactured by King Pharmaceuticals.
