    Low T3 Issue

    I've had issues with Hypothryoidism due to a Pitutitary Gland tumor that I had removed 5 years ago. For the past 5 years I've been on Levothyroxine to treat the Hypothyroidism along with other medications to treat issues with my hormones since my Pituitary Gland doesn't function as it should. It's only recently that my new Endocrinologist ordered some blood work and told me that my T3 was low and to start on new medication called Liothyronine. All these years no one has ever talked about my T3 levels so this is new to me. I've been on this medication for a month and hoping this will make a difference in how I feel. It's just amazing to me that my other Endocrinologists never brought this up before.
    Has anyone else been on this medication and has it made a difference in how feel?
