Losing weight: No, in my opinion you are not right. Steroids should only be given to make up for lost steroid production in your body or to overcome a medical disorder controlled by steroids.
Diotroxin is related to thyroid replacement and, to my knowledge is not available in the USA. Levothyroxine is more readily available and probably less expensive.
