Re: HELP... Symptoms getting worse on synthroid!!!!!
If you have high reverse t3, you should be taking t3 (such as cytomel) not synthroid, which is t4 only. Normally your body produces t4 first, then converts it to t3 which is the usable form. However some people convert T3 to reverse T3 instead which is not usable by the body. By taking additional T4 in the form of Synthroid, your body has more T4 so it can create more reverse T3. There's also great book by Paul Robinson called Recovering with T3 that explains how he got better after having high reverse t3.
Hope this helps!
