Im running a mild cutting cycle consisting of T3 (50-75 mcg/day MAX) along with PP (just to combat catabolism) and E/C. Its the first time I've ever tried T3. I did it out of curiousity mostly. I am in week 4 and I have noticed that my hair seems to be shedding faster than normal. I am prone to MPB and have used PP and numerous other things in the past. The last time I ran PP (bulking) I had hardly any noticeable thinning. Obviously harsh dieting isnt great for hair but I'm wondering if the T3 is coming into play. I know that thyroid disorders can cause pretty drastic shedding. I have also seen mention of hair loss with T3 but I was not aware of it being a common side effect. I thought that it was a side attributed mostly to -low- TSH levels only.
Has anyone else experienced minor shedding while on T3? It "seems" to be a more uniform thinning. In other words, more evenly across the whole head rather than classic MPB shape loss. Its nothing major yet though so its hard to be sure. It does seem like its thinner in general rather than major loss in the classic MPB zones (crown, forehead hairline, widows peaks). Im wondering if I should continue until week 5-6 or just end the T3 now. Still not sure if its the T3 or the dieting/PP. Otherwise everything else is going great...
Here is a cycle layout with my T3 dosing from a previous post. I ended up going into the 75 mcg range rather than 50 as my max.
