    Hypothyroidism and steroids

    What is advisable for a friend of mine who has Hypothyroidism and doesn't know if he can still use steroids ? Would T3-T4 be a good one for him to start using?

    The man is stubborn, he doesn't want to touch any thyroid drugs even though he has a problem. He is avoiding any kind of AAS since he discovered Hypo 1 year ago. Lately it has come to his mind to go back to using steroids but his fear is due to a thyroid problem, how can he use steroids having hypo? Would t3-t4 thyroid medications be needed together throughout your cycle or is there another way to manage the problem

    If he's willing to take T-3 or T-4 then he should get on thyroid meds, because they are thyroid meds.

    T3= Cytomel /liothyronine (manmade T3)
    T4= Synthroid /levothyroxine ( manmade T4)

    Honestly, if he won't take thyoid meds, I seriously doubt he would be interested in steroids . If he is willing to take steroids, but not thyroid meds, his priorities are way off

    I would tell this friend to go see an endocrinologist and trust that doctor's opinion. If he thinks taking medication is in your friend's interests, then he should listen to him.

    As far as taking gear goes, first he should get his thyroid situation under control.
