T3 and Weight Loss Q & A for Hashimoto's, Thyroidectomy, & Hypothyroidism with Dr. Amie Hornaman

Today I have Dr. Amie Hornaman on my podcast for a follow up Q & A based on our previous podcast! Dr. Amie is known as the thyroid fixer and both her and I share a similar philosophy when it comes to treating and managing hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, and thyroidectomy patients.

Our conversation today focuses mostly on T3 thyroid medication, how to use it, who should use it, its safety, how it impacts thyroid lab tests, and much more. We also talk a lot about weight loss and common pitfalls that thyroid patients face when they try to lose weight.
