T3 or T4 for cutting?
hi bros... i am planning a cutting cycle... i wanted to use T3 but many people say its dangerous and recommended me T4 instead? whats the difference is T4 as effective as T3? and is T3 really that dangerous?

I don't regard T3 as dangerous.It surely isn't any more risky than running anabolics.If taken in short term runs,your thyroid will recover rather easily.

T4 is very weak in comparison. I would just stick with t3

If you pm marcus300 he will tell you all you need to know, he is very knowledgeable and cant do enough to help. Id say go with the T4 though because T3 is far more likley to damage your thyroid gland FOR EVER!

T3 is also safe for long term use. See the T3 Profile.

Ive done plenty of research and know of at least one person who after taking T3 now has to take thyroid drugs daily. If the were no risks at all everyone would use it.

Why look for a pissing match when you are so new to this board?

Good post Pinnacle.
Doctors regularly perscribe T3 for people with hypothyroidism (low output).
Some take it for ever on a daily basis to replace their lack of production. Taking it without the aforementioned condition does not cause the condiition even for long periods of time as numerous studies attest. Again do some research XXTERXX, and by all mean READ THE VERY INFORMATIVE T3 POST IN THE PROFILES, WHICH EVEN SITES SOME RELEVANT STUDIES!!!

I think it would be great if someone put an educational thread up about T3. cause i did search after search about that compound and everything i came up with was all opinionated and wishy-washy. I would love to try it too but i would like to see some good concrete guidlines on how to use it properly and medical reasons why it should be taken that way. so if anyone one can help i'll definitley keep this thread checked cause im interested too....thx bros.-------P.S. i aint tryin to steal ur thread dude oops lol

Eat beef it has T2 in it, haha (true tho). Yes T3 is much more powerful and suppressive to natural thryoid prodcution b/c is bypasses all stages of production. T4 does NOT bypass ALL stages just the first stages. It is converted in the liver to T3. During calorie restricted diets, the enzyme responsible for t4-t3 conversion is limited so T4 many be of little use in 'starvation' diets.

The standard cutting diet requires one to ingest less calories than are necessary for maintenance. As stated above, the limiting factor in t4 to t3 conversion is an enzyme. The enzyme's production is reduced drastically when caloric intake is less than maintenance...making exogenous t4 administration all but useless.
I'd stick to t3.

Whoever is saying that taking T3 is behind his usage of long-term thyroid hormone more than likely either:
a) Misused the compound.
b) Likely was hypothyroid to begin with to some extent.
T3-usage have never been linked to permanent thyroid suppression.
