“…4 months off the T3 and feeling better all the time” – Nikki

Issues covered in the account below:

  • Normal off treatment
  • Fatigue

…I am now going on 4 months off the T3 and feeling better all the time. I just cant believe how wonderful it is to feel warm healthy and energetic. It has been so long since I was healthy that I forgot what it meant to feel this way. I had almost every symptom on the list and they have all disappeared. Can you believe it. Its been over 30 years at least since I was healthy. Once I weaned off my 2nd cycle I was scared but all has gone well and I even feel better than I did taking the T3 and I never would have believed this could ever happen. I have had some very major stress in my life this last month and all has been fine with my health. I was worried about that and was watching it very closely but my temp has stayed at 98.6 and I feel great and have been able to cope with it all.

… Thanks Dr Wilson you gave me a new life and it is so exciting. Nikki

About the Author:

Denis Wilson, MD described Wilson 's Temperature Syndrome in 1988 after observing people with symptoms of low thyroid and low body temperature, yet who had normal blood tests. He found that by normalizing their temperatures with T3 (without T4) their symptoms often remained improved even after the treatment was discontinued. He was the first doctor to use sustained-release T3.

    Hello Dr Wilson,

    I developed Hashimoto’s in my lat 20’s and am now 49 (female). I identify well with the symptoms of WTS (and have had a very high rT3/T3 ratio) and am going to ask my doctor to consider the treatment for me.

    I am desperately depressed and despairing and have very low temperatures, despite my dessicated thyroid dosage doubling in the past few months – with no response (temp or heart rate). I simply can’t imagine my temperature going up – this would be a strange thing after so many years of sluggishness.

    It is as if my body is immune to the replacement hormones, and I feel ‘flat-line’. I am intolerant to many foods and have been on a limited diet to reduce gut symptoms and the easy weight gain. I am in the healthy weight range due to much diligence and find it extremely difficult to remain there………

    May I ask – after ‘capturing my temperature’, do I go back on dessicated thryoid extract, or remain on a maintenance dose of T3? Does the maintenance dose usually lower after this treatment?

    Thank you for this promising work you are doing for others,
    Kind regards,

      Hi Leisa,
      The resetting phenomenon of staying well after treatment has been discontinued doesn’t occur with Armour. It only happens when a person’s temp has been captured with T3 therapy. Armour has T4 which can be converted to RT3. T4 and RT3 can downregulate the deiodinase enzyme that converts T4 to T3. If you’re on T3 now, I can say what your prognosis might be long term since I don’t know what your thyroid function was before you started and because I can’t discuss it over the internet anyway. I can speak with your doctor though if you wish.
