T3 helps reverse insulin resistance and diabetes.

But also, what kind of thyroid medication and dosing it takes to get there.

Is your Free T4 really in the Normal Range? Optimal vs Normal levels & More

Chances are VERY high that your Free T4 level isn't actually normal even though it may be in the "normal range".

Most people tend to blow off the Free T4 level because it isn't the 'free and active' hormone like T3.
