T3 and hypertension; is T2 a better option?

A few years ago I developed hypertension which seems to be the norm for men over 40 in my family. I tried adding low-dose t3 recently as my weight loss has hit a plateau, but it greatly exacerbated my high BP. When I say low dos, I'm talkin between 25 and 75 micrograms a day, and it still raise my blood pressure from a moderate 130 / 85 to a high of 155 / 110. I ruled out any other contributing factors and within a week of stopping at t3 my blood pressure return to normal. I've used t2 in the past (liquid labs) with decent results, but I'm curious as to whether or not it will have a similar effect on high blood pressure. Any thoughts?

That is not low dose. T3 is very powerful. Start at 5mcg per day and slowly increase. 10mcg daily puts some people at the top of the range. Make sure to divide in two doses, AM and before lunch.

I wouldn't go lower than 25mcg personally, don't see the point in suppressing your hormones if you're going to end up taking less than you can naturally produce. Having said that, if you have hypertension I would try and find my sweet spot between 25 and 50mcg. Research is important, so is airing on the side of caution, especially if you know you have a pre-existing condition.

T2 isn't as effective, in fact you need 100 fold the amount of T2 to get the same effect as on T3.

Thanks for the feedback guys. The hypertension seems to be getting worse no matter what I do or don't do. In fact my doc wants me to see a kidney specialist cuz the BP meds stopped working, so getting my "beach body" back is no longer a priority

T2 does literally nothing, t4 on the other hand works very well for most

You could have resistant hypertension. BP meds didn’t touch my issue. Only sides.

Let us know how you do?
I’m looking to alternatives to meds to affect my higher bp.
