PRODUCT INFO > 07. FATLOSS AGENTS

DRUG CLASS: SYNTHETIC THYROID HORMONE. (ORAL)
AVERAGE REPORTED DOSAGE: 100-400 MCG DAILY.
NOTED COMMENTS: SIGNIFICANT SUPPRESSION OF THYROID FUNCTION DURING USE.

SYNTHROID IS A MAN-MADE SYNTHETICALLY MANUFACTURED VERSION OF T-4/L-THYROXINE. THE AVERAGE PERSON PRODUCES ABOUT 76 MCG/D OF T-4/L-THYROXINE WHICH IS THEN CONVERTED BY THE LIVER INTO THE MORE ACTIVE T-3/L-TRIIODOTHYRONINE. THIS IS TRUE OF THE ORAL T-4/L-THYROXINE MEDICATIONS AS WELL. THE AVERAGE CONVERSION RATE OF T-4 TO T-3 IS ABOUT 30-33%/ MCG. SINCE THE CONVERSION OF T-4 TO T-3 IS DEPENDENT UPON ADEQUATE LEVELS OF SINCE AND SELENIUM, ATHLETES COMMONLY INCREASE DAILY INTAKE OF THESE MINERALS DURING SYNTHETIC T-4/L-THYROXINE USE.
AS IS THE CASE WITH ALL THYROID HORMONE DRUG USE, MOST ATHLETES WERE NOTED AS WISER TO BEGIN AT A LOWER DOSAGE OF 100 MCG/D AND SLOWLY PROGRESS TO THEIR CHOSEN DOSAGE. DAILY DOSAGES OF T-4/L-THYROXINE THAT EXCEED 400 MCG WILL NOT INCREASE METABOLIC RATE BEYOND WHAT IS REALIZED AT 400 + MCG/D.
DOSAGES THAT WERE INCREASED TOO RAPIDLY OR THAT WERE TOO HIGH COMMONLY RESULTED IN DIARRHEA, EXCESSIVE SWEATING, RAPID HEART BEAT, NAUSEA, VOMITING, INSOMNIA AND TREMBLING.
T-4 DRUGS SUPPRESS ENDOGENOUS THYROID HORMONE PRODUCTION SIGNIFICANTLY. AFTER DISCONTINUANCE, MOST ATHLETES EXPERIENCED A METABOLIC LAG PERIOD OF 3-15 DAYS BEFORE THYROID FUNCTION REBOUND OCCURRED. INTERESTING FACT IS THAT MOST MONITORED ATHLETES EXPERIENCED A 120-130 % INCREASE IN ENDOGENOUS THYROID HORMONES AT THAT POINT. AND SOME MAINTAIN THAT LEVEL PERMANENTLY.
