Specifically Compounded T4/T3 Thyroid Meds?


#1

I know many times testosterone is not the only hormone we are deficient in. For those of you with thyroid issues, is anyone taking a specifically compounded T4/T3 thyroid med other than NDT? I’ve noticed Empower Pharmacy offers specifically compounded ratios of T4/T3. I’m currently taking NDT(Natural Desiccated Thyroid) but have heard of people taking slow release T3 with NDT or taking a specifically compounded T4/T3 formulation. If you are taking a thyroid med other than a NDT formulation or Levothyroxine, can you elaborate on what specifically you are taking, how it makes you feel, and what led you to take it? Thanks for any info you can provide.
