Re: No added T3 during pregnancy??

We (me and a few of my other "thyroid friends") think he's referring to some fairly new guidelines by The Endocrine Society and somewhere there's a line stating that T4 treatment is the preferred choice - but no references proving T3 hazardous (obviously, T3 only is not an option as the fetus needs mom's T4).

She's afraid to fight this endo as he is supposed to be "the guy to see" but as we've seen in the past he certainly isn't perfect. After only a couple of weeks on T3 she was already starting to feel better, before added T3 her FT3 was in the pits (I'm afraid what'll happen to it now ).
