T3 and T4

Having discovered a wonderful consultant, the delights of Thyroxin treatment and subsequent gradual return to a near normal life, I need to know more. I have read that a combination of T3 + T4 may help the return of full memory and concentration. My consultant, patiently explained the risks of T3, particularly immediately after taking it, when there is a surge of T3 into the system. Is it possible that a pharmaceutical company out there may be able to develop a T3/T4 medication in a Slow-Release version? Would this reduce the extent of the arterial risk?

Time Release T3 can be made by compounding pharmacists and is the most physiologic way of treating hypothyroid and thyroid imbalance problems. Use Library Search above and type in Time Release T3 for details. Don't hold your breath for the pharmaceutical companies to do something so useful yet unprofitable. As to reducing arterial disease risk, to the extent that your metabolic rate is normalized, that is accomplished. Nothing does that better than time release T3 in cases where hypothyroidism is the main problem.
