Re: Tyroid (T3) Augmentation and Hair Loss Questio Bill LL

I thought that was weird as well. But then I thought maybe he meant that he would use artificial TSH (T3). Seems drastic to me when the thyroid was working properly before the T3 was being used.

> Your doc said that you can completely shut down the TSH? I've read a lot about thyroid supplementation and even the most aggressive docs won't let your TSH go below 1.0. I think that one complication of going too low is osteoporosis. You better double check this with your doc.

I have read that some sort of alopecia might be caused by impaired convertation of T4 to T3 in the skin of your head.
