You guys are pretty smart. I did look up the connection between thyroid function and cortisol levels. I have more to study.

Just wanted to update anyone who may be following along with what I'm dealing with. Last Friday I had some levels checked and on paper, everything is where I want it -- Reverse T3, TSH and Free T4 all down (low, out of range) and Free T3 in range. In theory, everything is working and it should just be a matter of time before things start working -- key point being, in theory.
These numbers reflect ceasing T4 (Synthroid) in the last week of June and starting T3 on July 1 (25mcg on Day 1, 50mcg from Days 2-7, 75mcg from Days 8-10, 100mcg starting July 11th).

This is great that you post up your actual labs in this thread man. I mean I know you always keep ME in the loop. But for the guys who don't understand bloods, and the importance of getting them done, what the results look like, what they mean, etc.. This is a really great thread for them to stumble on and hopefully understand the importance of it all and use it to their benefit. HUGE props bro.

I find myself very hopeful that as I personally regain more normal thyroid levels I will see some benefits in terms of body composition/muscle gain/strength etc. I would love to hear if you have noticed any difference in the gym or in any of these areas since you've been on the T3.

The gym has only gotten worse for me lately, so I don't have much positive news to report in that area at this moment. I'm just playing the waiting game and will await feeling the thyroid meds kick in.

Okay now seriously! This is a great thread, it's right up my ally, I can totally relate. It's like pulling teeth to keep the weight off because of hypothyroidism. I've been doing research on the topic myself and a lot of experienced guys on here are telling me to do the Alpha-T2/Erase stack. I've ordered both and I can't wait to see the results. I'm obviously going to decrease my calories and increase my cardio. I'll put up a before and after when I'm done.

I'm not sure how the other posts weren't showing up when I responded lol. I even refreshed the page. Odd.
I'm glad the info is helpful to you, man. I used AT2 with OEP a little over a year go myself and enjoyed it. That was back when i was just hypo and hadn't had the Reverse T3 problem rear its head.
