Hi,

I recently read about this sustained release form of T3 and would like to know how readily this is available in Europe. I also read about transdermal application of T3. Has anybody heard more about it than what is written on these sites:

I have also seen references to timed release T3 but have not been able to find it in Europe (UK), some of the research'pubmed is also talking now of Liquid T3 as being more suitable..

You do not need sustained release T3. I am an RN and have been for 20 years. I am currently studying BioChemistry and if you read the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) you will see that the biological effects of T3 go on long after it is absorbed. It is absorbed in 2-4 hours, but it is not absorbed by the tissue at this same rate. It takes about 3 days to work its magic. It has a half life of 24 hours. So taking it once daily works just fine. If you read the pharmaceutical companies web site, they list the half life as 24-48 hours and the prescribing information says to take it once daily. I am sure that the BioChemical enginers that made it know how it works. Since they know 10 fold more then doctors about the effets of chemicals in the human body. Go to this web site and you can educate yourself about many things thyroid. Web site: WWW.DRLOWE.COM
This doctor is well versed in the biochemical function of cells. Do yourself a favor and go to this site. Take care.

Both my internist and endocrinologist prefer the sustained release form of T3 (Liothyonine) as they think the non- sustained release can cause heart beat irregularities. Since I am in my 60's this is a cause for concern. I did take the regular stuff years ago with no problems but it was a lower dose than what I am on now.

 I don't think the sustained released formula is avaible in the US as a matter of course, so I use a compounding pharmacy that makes up capsules of the stuff in the dosage I need.
