How can Proper T3 Therapy Help Normalize Body Temperatures Even When Thyroid Blood Tests Are Normal?
-It’s like understanding that there’s more to making ice than just water. The glandular portion of the thyroid system provides the raw material (what is measured by thyroid blood tests) needed by the peripheral portion (downstream to the glands) to deliver the right mix of the thyroid hormones T3, T4, and perhaps RT3, to provide proper thyroid stimulation of the cells in order to generate an adequate body temperature to prevent symptoms of unbalanced thyroid system function. If the glandular portion, or coarse tuning, wasn’t working well enough, then insufficient raw material would be produced, which would show up on the blood tests, and the shortage would be felt all the way down the line, eventually resulting in symptoms. This is analagous to it being hard to make enough ice when there’s not enough water. But if the glandular portion was perfectly fine, and there was a problem in the peripheral portion, you could still get symptoms as seen in Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. That’s bec
