I've seen quite a few conflicting answers regarding what a baseline t3 dosage is, and how much is necessary to actually lose weight.
What amount is the consensus for what is basically just replacing what your body normally produces, thus putting you at a T3 baseline, and how much is needed to go above that a bit to actually lose fat?
Also, does anyone have a quote un quote "good" answer for why straight t3 is hardly ever prescribed for hypothyroidism? It's always a derivative of T4 first, like thyroxine that is prescribed, which mostly gets converted into T3 anyways. Is it just because for safety precautions it's best to get away with as little as you can to achieve the right amount for your body? Or is T4 really a better treatment for hypothyroidism than T3 would be?
