If my thyroid hormone levels are "normal, " is there any harm in taking a T3 (liothyronine) compound? And then what if I stop the T3 (liothyronine) after 2 months for example?

If my thyroid hormone levels are "normal, " is there any harm in taking a T3 (liothyronine) compound?  And then what if I stop the T3 (liothyronine) after 2 months for example?

Depends: There is no harm if you are monitored correctly. Too high of a dose can indeed cause atrial fibrillation and/or osteoporosis. The TSH test is not sufficient to monitor thyroid without measuring the entire thyroid hormone panel which would tell if you needed T3 (liothyronine) supplementation.

If you've evaluated all of these things on your own, perhaps you got one or more wrong. That's not too surprising since learning medicine takes years of studying. See a professional. Good luck! ...Read more
