Re: No added T3 during pregnancy??

hugs to your friend and congrats with the pregnancy of course.

so far haven't encountered anything like that either (sure am interested in it).
Even when it's written in a guideline i kinda wonder:
1) is the guideline pro T3 in general or T4 only (quite a lot guidelines are 'T4 is all one needs")
2) is it based on T3 as such or other motivations? Not many doctors know how to medicate properly, even less when it concerns T4and T3, since most doctors will lowed the T4 dosage I can see the baby/fetus not getting sufficient T4 and consequently that might be a motivation to keep T3 out of it (although it's not due to T3 as such)
Can she ask the doctor about the guideline or is it to be tracked somehow?
