Barking up weird tree

Do we know what other hormones the thryroid gland makes besides t3 and t4? I heard there were seven Ts? Is that in fact true?

Are there replacers for them? I've heard you could buy T2 for instance, but have not heard anything about the others.

Are there tests to measure the serum levels?

Re: Barking up weird tree

Yes there are more T's but drs know little about them. I have read that T2 is needed for metabolism. You would think that if our bodies make them to begin with then they are needed for some reason. Maybe one day they will figure all that out a bit better. I have also heard that natural meds like Armour actually have some of the other T's in them.
