? reverse T3: Slightly elevated TSH in the presence of normal T3 and T4 suggests a higher than average level of reverse t3. T3 is what's actually used by cells for metabolic activity; it's produced from T4 passing thru the liver. The average person makes only about 10% reverse T3, but if you make more than than you'll have subclinical hypthyroidism with normal T4 and T3 values and slightly elevated TSD. ...Read more

Subclinical Hypothyroididsm: In a difficult case like yours I take into consideration ratio of T4 to TSH. If the ratio is less than 2.5 I have found out that patients have hypothyroidism. I would take small dose of synthyroid like 0.25mg for a month and recheck T4and TSH then decide whether to continue or add some more. This will depend on how you tolerate it and what's your T4 and TSH. Obviously you have compound problem in situation like this hypothyroidism needs to be corrected first. Let me know how you do. ...Read more

Multifactorial: There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.

We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.

Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.

Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

What are efffects and results of cytomel (liothyronine) for hypothyroid?

Short-acting T3 (liothyronine): Cytomel (liothyronine) is the trade name for tri-iodothyronine, (t3). It is considered the active form of thyroid hormone, although all cells can convert T4 (the predominant product of the thyroid gland) into t3. Can be used to replace thyroid hormone, but it is short-lived. This means it must be taken multple times a day, and gives levels which are constantly going up and down (not ideal, hard to adjust). ...Read more

Why does liothyronine cause loss of appetite?

It doesn't: Liothyronine is a form of thyroid hormone called t3 (liothyronine). Unless you are truly hypothyroid, taking thyroid hormone to lose weight doesn't work because appetite is increased at the same time that metabolism is increased. You would have to be on a toxic dose of thyroid hormone before you would see any significant weight loss. ...Read more

Why T3 (liothyronine) is not routinely used in hypothyroidism?

Why T3 (liothyronine) is not routinely used in hypothyroidism?

Ignorance!: Doctors are taught that most people only need to be given T4 as our bodies convert T4 to t3 (liothyronine). This is true for some, but many people don't make that conversion adequately. In my experience almost all patients on thyroid benefit from taking t3 (liothyronine) as well as T4 (or natural thyroid which has both).

Can liothyronine be taken even when thyroid levels are normal?

Yes, but why???: Hi. Sure, most people with normal thyroid function could take a low dose of liothyronine (T3) without it causing hyperthyroidism. The pituitary sees the T3, and secretes TSH accordingly to maintain overall normal exposure to thyroid hormone. But why on earth would you want to do that? In my humble opinion, don't take a hormone you don't need! ...Read more

What will the treatment be for a free T3 (liothyronine) of 1.76?

Maybe none: The units and normal ranges for free t-3 vary widely. In addition, the free t-3 is never used by itself to diagnose a thyroid disorder. It is only even minimally helpful when it is in combination with more useful and conventional thyroid tests like the free-4 and tsh. Free t-3 measures free t-3 in the blood, but what's really important is the t-3 level in the cells, which the test can't measure. ...Read more
