Crash Course Needed on T3/T4

Crash Course Needed on T3/T4

I've been on Synthroid for about 10 years now. Over the last few, I've noticed a decrease in energy and a complete inability to lose weight. I haven't pushed the issue with my doctor--apparently she doesn't think it's severe enough to change my treatment.

However, I've been reading a bit about T3 and T4, and I'm wondering if I should talk to her specifically about adding these to my treatment. (I'm assuming that if my prescription says "Synthroid," I'm not currently getting either of them. Yes or no?)

I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning. Can someone give me a brief summary of what these are, what they do, and some advice on how to approach a doctor who's fairly conservative? (I already know she won't prescribe Armour.)


Thanks very much!
