Triiodothyronine, also known as T3 (triiodothyronine, liothyronine,) is a thyroid hormone used by the body in the processes of metabolism. A large variety of reasons can alter the body's ability to produce the normal amounts of Liothyronine. In such cases Triiodothyronine is taken to replace the body's natural hormone. Used as therapy for hypothyroidics, T3 may hold some promise as being a short-term fat burner and cognitive enhancer vicariously through the effects of thyroid hormones. T3 is fairly commonly used for fat loss, particularly in the context of anabolic steroid cycles. T3 is naturally produced in the body as a result of T4 (thyroxine) production by the thyroid. Oral administration of T3 can yield higher levels of serum T3 than would occur naturally, allowing faster fat loss and in some cases potentially greater GH production and greater anabolism.
T3-Max-100 (Liothyronine) 100mcg is used in the following conditions:
- Low thyroid function
- Prevention and treatment of goiter growth or enlargement of the thyroid gland
- The goiter can be caused by radiation exposure, surgery, cancer or hormonal disbalance
- Fat loss.
Starting dose of 10 or 20 micrograms every 8 hours, increasing after one week, if necessary, to the usual recommended daily dose of 60 micrograms in two or three divided doses.
5 micrograms daily (Liothyronine sodium tablets can be crushed and triturated with lactose for administration as a powder).
Triiodothyronine is in the pregnancy category A meaning that it can be used during pregnancy and does not pass into the breast milk.
Due to the fact that Liothyronine is a naturaly occuring hormone in a human body nearly everyone can use it. In certain cases however it should not be taken or the state of the organism should be monitored by your local health care professional:
There are possible side-effects associated with Liothyronine that can affect individuals in different ways. If a side effect is stated here, that does not necessarily mean the fact that all people using Liothyronine will experience it or any other. Serious side effects like an allergic reaction (swelling, difficulty breathing, closing of throat or hives), vomiting, chest pain, shortness of breath or irregular heartbeat are rarely to occure. Other, less serious side effects consist of:
