Darlene Shares Her Experience with Cytomel (t3)

Darlene sent us this post in which she explains how the addition of Cytomel (t3) resulted in a great improvement in her symptoms of hypothyroidism. Many physicians including endocrinologists continue to dispute the benefit of adding t3 in situations such as Darlene’s. Perhaps posting her comments and others like hers will help sway opinions.

I have been on synthroid for Hashimotos thyroiditis for over 10 years. I am on 300MCG. l have experienced severe fatigue and chronic joint pain for most of my life. I also experience bouts of depression. Four weeks ago I was placed on 5mg of Cytomel along with the 300mcg of synthroid. I am happy to say that my fatigue is almost gone, I have lost weight, my depression is gone and my joint pain is almost gone. I have never felt better in my life. I feel better than when I was teenager. I am now 37 years old and feel like life is starting over for me.

    Hi my name is Debbie Oct. 19, 2009

    I have a goyter, which nobody seems to understand. It developed after my second son was born. I have no idea on how it got there, and have been trying to understand why it is there. And am just hoping that one day, it will just go away on its own. But every time the doctor sends me for a ultrasound, which is once a year. He only tells me that it is getting bigger, and to come back and get a blood test.

    I am just wondering why dont they just put me on a medication, that will help shrink it or something. I don’t really want to undergo surgery, if that’s what they reccomend. Because I am scared that I’m not going to make it through surgery, and I don’t want to leave my two boy’s. etc.
