    Alright T3 people, new guy needs some help

    What's up guys, my order of T3 will be arriving in the next couple days and hopefully I will be able to jump on that ASAP with all of the proper precautions taken.

    I plan on taking a trip to the doctors to get all the blood work and check-ups done to make sure my body is ready and capable of handling the cycle. My questions for now deal with taking a sample BBT before beginning.

    Would factors such as the air conditioning level have an effect on my waking temperature (I like it cold, about 72)? I also have a box fan blowing right in my face all night long, any effect?

    Bro, learn about T3 then. Try going to T3101. You should be monitoring temps like you thought but I'm not sure if a fan blowing right at you would alter your reading. I know I'm doing the same (fan in the face) and taking my temps right now to get ready for T3 and I'm reading at 97.2-97.5 which is normal. That's as most as I can help you though. Where's our Mallet?

    What a good example of someone who shouldn't give advice on the topic at hand. You never felt hot so you say no. He wasn't even asking what you're answering. He's steps ahead of you as far as knowing what he's doing. Don't try to lead him away from that for the sake of posting something.

    I have read up so much on T3 it is insane, almost anything that Mallet has written I have read. But I could not seem to find the answer to that question. I know what the temps should read for a properly functioning thyroid, but I didn't know if these two outside factors would have an effect on my waking body temp. I mean, if they did not the why would there even been such a thing as hypothermia if the body was not effected by the external temperature, so obviously outside factors affect body temps. I was just inquiring as to what degree.

    Also I can't seem to find the T-100x anywhere, could someone let me know? The colleus is easy enough to get though.

    My guess is it's a negligible effect but I'm not sure. Try PM'ing Mallet with this question and for a site for that T-100x. He hooked me up with the site I got mine from but I don't have it handy. If I can post it up here for you I will but don't count on it.

    aor.ca is the manufacturer of t-100x and coleus. From thier website, you can find a site that sells their products closest to you.

    To answer the other posted question, it is very unlikely that ambient temp can affect your basal temp. The core temperature is quite evenly maintained. That is why you sweat and shiver in those circumstances. It is part of your bodies regulation mechanism for temperature.


    The stupid editor keeps f'ing up. Here, read this link. Obviously, ignore the pregnancy info. But it tells the proper way to check your BBT and also things that cause low temps.

    Trying the boards first is definitely a good idea but it wasn't going so well so that's why I suggested PM'ing him. Luckily Superman saved the day. ... or was that Supirman? Close enough.

    Yes your Outside temp has nothing to do with your core temp! Fans and airconditioners will not effect your BBT. To much movement, or getting up for a piss first will effect your BBT, so be still and take it before your feet hit the floor.

    Acctually I've read every post on this board about it. My advice was based on both knowledge and first hand experience.

    So how does this make sense exactly then. Maybe I missed something. Sounds like you are infering you don't monitor your temps at all because T3 doesn't raise your temp. That's 100% wrong. Were you saying something else?

    Nope I was just answering his question, all I said was that having fans pointed at you wouldn't have an effect on BBT. The comment about DNP was for the fact that I was assuming he was having the fans pointed at his head mearly for the sake of t3, I found it ammusing.

    As has been said....outside/ambient temp has nothing to do with your internal workings....unless you're submerged in ice for hours....but otherwise a fan won't matter....we have our air on right now, and my bbt is higher than ever.

    Bro, I refuse to argue, but if you will look at his post you will see he only asked one question. And I answered him correctly.

    Bro, not trying to argue. I just don't get that from your wording. That's all. That's why I said oh well. You obviously meant different than what it sounded like to me initially. The oh well also meant I was done here.

    The coleus and T-100X should be fine....I also take kelp too....so you shouldn't need more, but maybe if Mallet sees this? He could tell you more.

    I got the idea to pick up these products from Mallet's post on Thyroid PCT. I am looking in to picking up some kelp/Iodine.

    The t-100X contains bladderwrack which is a good source of iodine, probably better than Kelp.

    Make sure your multiple vitamin is high in Selenium (200mcg) chromium (200mcg) iodine (75mcg) zinc (50mg) copper (3mg) these are necessary for the synthesis of t4 as well as the production of the enzyme iodothyronine deiodinase that coverts t4 to t3.

    Are we taking one of these 2 to 3 times daily?

    The doses above are in 2 pills, I take 3 spread out during the day though, 1 upon waking, 1 at mid-day and 1 right after workout.

    On a side note, I am going to begin taking a sample BBT when I wake the next few days leading up to my Doctors apt so I can tell him some extra details such as a low/high BBT, etc.

    Yeah, I am making my appointment for sometime next week. Are there any specific tests I should ask to have run?

    On a side note, I took my BBT for this morning and it was 97.4.

    Alright, I took a sample of my BBT over the last 4 days and the reading were,

    6/18-97.4
    6/19-97.1
    6/20-97.3
    6/21-97.5

    Seems pretty consistant, no real huge leaps. Now I just want to get my bloodwork done and then I'll begin my cycle. Hoping to do the 7/5 splits for 3-5 rotations.

    Thos etemps aren't bad, your just outside of the low end of optimal..I don';t forsee any negative feedback from your blood panel with those numbers, it isn't going to take much t3 to get your BBT into the optimal range either.
