Re: Starting cytomel
Yes, this is generally done as a temporary measure and usually after a trial of natural desiccated thyroid or at least a saliva test to check for adrenal fatigue.
My RT3 ratio was very low too but I didn't go onto T3, I started on Nature-throid instead and am having a reversal of my hypo symptoms now that I'm up to 3 gr. I also had a lot of adrenal fatigue symptoms but my saliva test showed me to be a little high in cortisol, not low so I didn't do any HC supplimenting, instead, as you are, I supplimented my other vitamins that were deficient.
I assume your doc is planning to switch you over to NTH after a period of time? I'm curious to see how you do on it.
