    T3/T4 affect on GH

    Sorry bro, meant to incorporate this in my last question. Without going into the technical aspects (which im sure you are familiar with no doubt), what is your opinion on the T3 vs T4 with GH? I have recently been leaning to the theory of T3 but in moderation, 12.5 mcgs. Thought being im not in precon so im not concerned with extreme fat burn but the research does show T3 greatly assists GH at the right levels. But, is possible that utilizing T4and allowing the body to convert to T3 in the necessary amounts more logical? The question then is, does the body know the proper amount to convert and will it if so. Seems to me it would be easier to control exogenously?Many thx again brother, hope i dont drive you crazy!

    When taking gh, it is possible that it will speed up the turn over of T4 (inactive thyroid) to T3 (active Thyroid). So for this reason, t3 levels may be a little higher than normal, but T4 levels can be a little lower than normal. So if this happens, a low dose of T4 would help. If you feel ok while on gh, not having symptoms of hypo-thyroid, then I would not add additional drugs. Keep it simple is always the best option. But if you are feeling hypo throid, you should get some labs to see what your levels are. If you are low on T4, you can add it into the plan. I would start very low. It should not take much. 50mg T4 would be the average amount that someone would use
