    Default How to Come Off Cytomel T3 and T3 and weight loss. liothyronine sodium

    Cytomel

    (liothyronine sodium)

    Cytomel is a synthetic T3 hormone. As you may already know, most natural T3 is not produced directly by your thyroid gland, but rather is converted from the T4 thyroid hormone. (8)
    Cytomel T3 Weight Loss

    Natural T3 is a regulator of the oxidative metabolism of energy producing substrates (food or stored substrates like fat, muscle, and glycogen) by the mitochondria. The mitochondria, as you will recall from your high school biology class, are usually referred to as the "cellīs powerhouses" because they produce ATP. Taking Cytomel (supplemental T3) greatly increases the uptake of nutrients into the mitochondria and also their oxidation rate (i.e. the rate at which they are burned for energy), by increasing the activities of the enzymes involved in the oxidative metabolic pathway. Everything is working harder, in other words, and more fuel is needed to supplement this increased work rate. Therefore, as you can guess, taking supplementalCytomel will increase your bodyīs energy demands. And if you are in a hypocaloric state, you will begin burning even fatter primarily due to an increase in ATP. This increased ATP causes an increase in overall metabolic activity. (8)(9)This is exactly what we want, and is why we would be taking thyroid hormones like Cytomel in the first place. If you arenīt taking Anabolic Steroids with your Cytomel, however, your body may start to eat away muscle to provide energy for you to function. Remember mitochondria/ATP arenīt very picky, but they are very efficient. What I mean by this is that they will use whatever is on hand to generate energy for your body to continue functioning, fat, protein, glucose; it doesnīt matter to ATP, as long as thereīs something to give them energy. Taking this drug will increase their need to find something to burn to create this energy. Ergo, if we arenīt taking Anabolic Steroids while taking our T3, we may lose too much muscle, especially while dieting.
    Thus we can see that there are many advantages to using Cytomel to optimize our metabolic rate. It will also increase your bodyīs ability to synthesize protein, but from what Iīve seen personally, it acts as a catabolic when it isnīt administered with Anabolic Steroids. It is often the last thing added into a precontest diet, as it has a reputation for getting rid of the last few percentages of bodyfat& the "sticky fat" as itīs called in bodybuilding, the fat that just doesnīt want to leave you in the last few weeks of dieting. I think this is a poor use for this drug, and that it should be the first thing added into a diet to lose fat, as it will optimize your metabolic rate, which should be done at the outset of a diet, not after the calorie restriction has diminished your thyroid output and you are adding it in simply to replace what was lost.
    Cytomel Side Effects

    Unfortunately, in all of the studies Iīve seen, T3 also increased growth hormone production. (5)(6) As we all know, GH is also a strongly lipolytic compound, and this is another mechanism by which T3 may exert its effects, although I suspect this would only be a small percentage of its overall effects. This being the case, it has always been somewhat problematic to me to note that when GH and T3 are used together, the increased nitrogen retention normally found with GH use is negated. (7). If you were only using T3 and GH this may be a problem, but as Iīve already stated, you are going to need some anabolic agents if you are using T3. And as you have read previously, I recommend the veritable anabolic/lipolytic orgy of Insulin, T3, Anabolic Steroids, GH, and Insulin, for 100% maximum results in minimal time.
    On the brighter side, and of special note to dieters, administration of T3 has been shown to upregulate the beta 2 receptors in fat tissue. As you knowClenbuterol and similar compounds downregulate this receptor, so using T3 with your Clen will help stave off or reverse this downregulation. (1)(2)(3)(4). I would still recommend taking your benadryl every third week, though.
    Going off Cytomel

    Finally, I would like to address the issue of recovery of your natural thyroid function after you stop taking Cytomel. The horror stories of people on permanent thyroid replacement just arenīt true. I remember a few years ago, the rumor was circulating that the current Ms.Fitness had permanently shut off her thyroid gland, and was now fat and on thyroid hormone permanently. This is just another horror story based in nothing but conjecture and rumor, the studies Iīve looked at have shown people recovering their thyroid hormone relatively quickly (within months, at most) after going off of several YEARS (!) of thyroid replacement therapy (10)(11). I speculate that you can optimize your metabolic rate with Cytomel for 9-10 months a year, and just normalize yourself for 2-3 months (perhaps the winter, when you are mostly covered up), and then go right back on. Some people in the studies I read were on T3 for 30 years and recovered their natural thyroid function within short order. I think we can safely spend an athletic career using Cytomel 9-10 months out of the year, and just taking those few months off to normalize ourselves. Is this aggressive? Yes. Is this unsafe? NO.

    Default cytomel weight loss - human growth hormone HGH - Clenbuterold

    cytomel weight loss

    Clenbuterol is regularly used along with HGH with T3 Cytomel for a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. It may be used alone in a Clenbuterol only cycle, also known as a Clen only cycle, to access extraordinary and nearly long lasting upgrades in the perspective of muscle definition, weight loss, body fat loss, protein synthesis, and nitrogen retention.To get the best value from the Clenbuterol only cycle, dosages of this weight loss drug should be properly selected. The most typical quantity routine followed by men is between 60-140 mcg every day and ladies use Clen mostly in doses of 40-120 mcg every day. It is worth noting that the doses should be increased by 20 mcg every day from the lowest to arrive at the highest stage (140 mcg for men and 120 mcg for women) and then decreased by 20 mcg every day from the highest possible to arrive at the lowest stage (60 mcg every day for men and 40 mcg every day for women).A perfect Clenbuterol only cycle for men would be in the order of 60mcg, 80mcg, 100mcg, 120mcg, 140mcg, 120mcg, 100mcg, 80mcg, and 60mcg and the best Clenbuterol only cycle for women the order would be 40mcg, 60mcg, 80mcg, 100mcg, 120mcg, 100mcg, 80mcg, 60mcg, and 40mcg.Most athletes choose using Clenbuterol in a 2-day on and 2-day off or 3-week on and 3-week off cycle as it allows their individual body not get safe from the activity procedure of the medication.Clenbuterol use is also contraindicated to those suffering from health problems such as tachycardia, tachyarrhythmia, heart or thyroid diseases, urinary retention, glaucoma, ischemic heart disease, hyperthyroidism, myocardial infarction (acute period), high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, prostatic hypertrophy, hyperthyroidism, or hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. Sportsmen and others who are already making the use of drugs such as terbutaline, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, cardiac glycosides, oxytocin, propanolol, digoxin, dinoprost (Lutalyse, Prostamate), beta-blockers, sugar lowering drugs, insulin, CNS stimulants, MAO inhibitors, and sympathomimetic agents, or inhaled anesthetics, should avoid this weight and fat loss drug.

    T3 Cytomel is one of the best drugs for treating obesity, metabolic disorders, and fatigue and stimulating metabolic rate of the body. It is popular among professional athletes, especially muscle builders, to lose fat and boost benefits of anabolic steroids during a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. It is popular among both men and ladies as use of T3 cytomel does not cause any virilization.Use of T3 Cytomel is also efficient for excessive diets and getting muscular firmness without limiting on muscle size and mass. It is ranked by many as the best weight-loss and muscle building drugs as it helps in losing fat, maintaining muscular size, and getting trim overall look simultaneously without limiting on strength and endurance. T3 Cytomel also shows efficiency in up regulating the beta 2 receptor in the adipose tissue.The naturally occurring metabolite of the endogenous thyroid hormone triodothyronine (T-3), Cytomel, has the unique ability of increasing metabolic rate of the body rapidly. Use of T3 Cytomel is related with an increase in the conversion rate of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. This means that the body is able to utilize nutritional value in the food at an enhanced speed because of improved mobile activity.The recommended dosage of T3 Cytomel is 25-100 mcg per day for a period less than six weeks. The dosages should be divided into equivalent amounts and taken in the morning or at the time of going to bed. After a steroid cycle including T3 Cytomel, use of the drug should be stopped for at least eight weeks so that the body does not get immune to its action procedure. The misuse of T3 Cytomel or overdosing can cause adverse reactions such as heart palpitation, trembling, irregular heartbeat, heart oppression, shortness of breath, ex*cessive perspiration, and diarrhea.

    T3 Cytomel and weight loss. Ramping T3

    This may or may not be too technical for some. Regardless I thought this was pretty interesting. There has been huge debate/controversay regarding the prescribing of T3 for problematic thyroid patients vs using T4. However, concidering some people will self-prescribe this product to aid in weight loss during a cycle I thought it was worth mentioning.

    It seems that apperently T3 dosage in accordance with certain anti-depressents has been used to increase and speed up the affects of the anti-depressents in regards to helping the treatment of depression. Please note as well that even these doctors use at least half of the diamond dosing (upwards with no mention of the downward side of dosing when doing a cycle of T3). It does not mention the affects after the study regarding thyroid condition after study patients came off of the T3 vs a placebo.

    T3 for weightloss without the prescription or correct diagnoses from a doctor is not advised, but I put this here as just another source of information regarding the use of T3.

    The final thought I wanted to put out there and ultimately ask people WHO HAVE USED T3.

    1)Were you using anti-depresents while using it?
    2)Do you remember ever feeling relief of certain stress related issues (maybe subconciously)
    3)Regardless of anti-depressents, do you remember if you had a feeling a depression AFTER the usage of T3? (I ask, because depression worry after a cycle is always a concern - I'm curious if this could be a major factor depending on the popularity of this product in cycles anymore??)

    T3 Supplementation Raises Patients' Response to Sertraline
    JANE SALODOF MACNEIL

    PARIS — Triiodothyronine supplementation significantly increased the antidepressant effects of sertraline in a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial presented by Dr. Bernard Lerer in a breaking news session at the annual congress of the European College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

    Israeli patients treated with sertraline (Zoloft) and triiodothyronine (T3) were nearly three times more likely to respond (odds ratio 2.93), compared with a cohort given sertraline and a placebo. Some 69.8% (37/53 patients) had at least a 50% reduction in their Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) scores on the active drug combination vs. 50% (25/50 patients) in the control group.

    The sertraline-T3 cohort also was much more likely (odds ratio 2.69) to go into remission by the sixth week of treatment. At that point, 58.5% (31/53) of the T3-augmented patients but only 38% (19/50) of the placebo group was in remission.

    “Results of the current controlled study support the efficacy of T3 as an enhancer of antidepressant action,” said Dr. Lerer, director of the Hadassah Biological Psychiatry Laboratory and a professor of psychiatry at the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in Jerusalem.

    Both groups of patients started on 50 mg per day of sertraline for 1 week, followed by 100 mg per day for 7 weeks. The T3 dose also was titrated up from 20–25 mcg per day the first week to 40–50 mcg per day for the rest of the trial.

    T3's effects in the trial appeared to be related to the hormone's effect on thyroid function, according to Dr. Lerer. He said patients who responded to the active-drug combination tended to have lower baseline levels of T3 than those who did not. Patients who remitted on T3 and sertraline also had greater reductions in thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) than those who did not go into remission. Neither effect was seen in the sertraline-placebo group.

    “The precise clinical role of T3 needs to be further defined, and predictors of response need to be identified,” Dr. Lerer said in his conclusion.

    In September, an antidepressant trial in the United States reported that T3 augmentation resulted in more remissions and fewer adverse events than lithium augmentation in treatment-resistant patients (Am. J. Psychiatry 2006;163:1519–30). Reviewing this and previous studies of T3 and antidepressants, Dr. Lerer said researchers suspect patients with thyroid dysfunction are less able to respond to antidepressants. Prevalence of depression is higher in patients with hypothyroidism, he noted, whereas thyroid dysfunction is also more prevalent in patients with depression.

    Though some studies have shown T3 to elicit responses more often in women than in men and also to speed response to antidepressants, Dr. Lerer said neither effect was seen in the new trial. He also reported no difference in adverse events with T3, compared with placebo.

    Sertraline was chosen for the study because it is little used in Israel, Dr. Lerer said, and therefore, the trial was better able to enroll patients. Patients with clinical hyper- or hypothyroidism or other thyroid disorders, including subclinical hypothyroidism were excluded from the study.

    The study received support from the Stanley Medical Research Institute in Chevy Chase, Md. Investigators from Beer Yaakov Mental Health Center in Israel and Global Medical Institutes in Princeton, N.J., also participated in the trial, which was coordinated by Dr. Lerer's group.
