Armour Thyroid T3/T4 (60 mg)
The Master Hormone, thyroid, controls every cellular activity and everything about you. This includes your mood, metabolism, libido, heart rate, activity, skin and hair and more. Nearly everyone over the age of 40 becomes thyroid resistant and needs more thyroid to function at optimal levels. It is dismaying that most physicians cannot diagnose acquired thyroid resistance except at the extremes. Vie provides the most useful form of thyroid which is T3. Vie has the guidance and the thyroid medicine that is most effective to supplement your body’s needs and keep levels safe. The correct amount of thyroid helps with weight loss, more energy, less depression, better skin and hair, and raises your body temperature giving you an inner warmth.
- the Master Hormone. This needs to be fixed first!
- symptoms of low thyroid are: weight gain, lethargy, cold intolerance, depression, low energy, poor skin, brittle hair, hair loss and pain
- most people acquire thyroid resistance with age
- Vie’s T3 penetrates to the brain without needing modification, thus it crosses the blood-brain barrier
- thyroid resistance can be determined by a lab test
- thyroid replacement gives you what you need to feel young again
- if your thyroid is wrong, nothing else is right! It is the master!
- usage protocols are sent on receipt of order

notes: Thyroid T3/T4 is natural thyroid replacement. Not synthetic. It contains the most active form T3 that is essential for brain activity, alertness, memory, and depression. It is ready for your body to use. The T4 is used in the body outside of the brain. Most prescriptions are T4 only and can’t cross the blood brain barrier without conversion. Thyroid T3/T4 is considered the Master Hormone because it is essential for nearly every cell action in our bodies. If thyroid is not right, there are many problems and we do not function properly. As we age, the body becomes resistant to the thyroid hormones. So, labs can tell us we have plenty of hormone, but it is not having the same effect as it did when we were younger. Symptoms of your body not having enough thyroid are:
- Trouble losing weight / weight gain
- Fatigue: Low Energy and Feeling Tired or Worn Out Coarse hair or Hair Loss
- Dry and Itchy Skin Depression and Feeling Down Cold intolerance
- Weakness or Pain in the Muscles/Joints
- Trouble Concentrating or Remembering
There is a hormone that measures how satisfied your cells are with thyroid. This is TSH. High values mean the cells are begging for more thyroid.
Subclinical hypothyroidism or acquired thyroid resistance are terms used to describe patients with symptoms of low thyroid yet have normal thyroid levels and high TSH levels.
There is a sweet spot for treating subclinical hypothyroidism. You can correct many problems in patients. There are numerous studies showing improvement in cardiovascular parameters, bone density, body composition improvement (less fat), more energy, less spontaneous fetus loss, and less depression.
The sweet spot is TSH 1 – 2.5. Treating TSH above 2.5 with low dose thyroid is the most common up to date recommendation. Treat to achieve this range. Do not over treat and make TSH <1 as this has bad side-effects to include arrhythmia and loss of bone density. Treatment with low-dose natural thyroid T3/T4 is nicely tolerated with virtually no problems. Vie can help patients get the right supplement and correct dose, but patients must coordinate with their PCP for ongoing total management. Typical safe dose is 30 – 60 mg a day. We do not recommend dosing above 60 mg.
Impaired Sensitivity to Thyroid Hormones Is Associated With Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome https://doi.org/10.2337/dc18-1410
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS
We calculated the aforementioned resistance to thyroid hormone indices based on a U.S. representative sample of 5,129 individuals
‡20 years of age participating in the 2007–2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
Higher values in resistance to thyroid hormone indices are associated with obesity, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and diabetes-related mortality. Resistance to thyroid hormone may reflect energy balance problems driving type 2 diabetes.
The Normal TSH Reference Range: What Has Changed in the Last Decade?

in order to define the serum TSH reference interval more accurately (10). They suggested that the upper limit of the TSH reference range be lowered to 2.5 mIU/L (10).
In fact, in 2007, The Endocrine Society and the ATA recommended that the upper limit of the TSH reference range be lowered to less than 2.5 mIU/L in the first trimester and less than 3 mIU/L in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy
On commonness and rarity of thyroid hormone resistance: a discussion based on mechanisms of reduced sensitivity in peripheral tissues.
Tjørve E1, Tjørve KM, Olsen JO, Senum R, Oftebro H.
Reduced sensitivity to thyroid hormone (TH) in peripheral tissues can occur as defects in TH transport into the cell, intracellular TH metabolism, cytosolic mechanisms, TH entry into the nucleus, thyroxin receptors (TRs) and receptor binding, transcription and post-transcriptional mechanisms. Current literature reveals an extensive list of mutations, drugs, toxins, metabolites and autoimmune antibodies that may impair TH action in the cell, but such impairment may not be picked up by assays of TH and TSH in blood plasma. Substances may induce tissue specific resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH),
e.g. by affecting numbers of different TR isoforms. Recent literature also indicates mechanisms by which different conditions, for example, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), chronic renal failure (CRF) and nonthyroidal illness, can be accompanied by acquired RTH caused by inhibition of TH metabolism, cell uptake, TR binding and transcription. This prompts us to reassess commonness and rarity of congenital vs. acquired RTH. We hypothesise that observed clinical symptoms of hypothyroidism in chemically euthyroid patients are typically caused by changes in hormonal systems, autoimmune antibodies, metabolites or other substances in the body, leading to reduced sensitivity to TH in peripheral tissues. These changes may be a by-product of other processes and a reversible biological response in the body, and may also result in chronic acquired RTH. Antibodies may prove to be the most common cause of chronic reduction in TH sensitivity. It is argued that the acquired form of RTH, caused by endogenous and exogenous sources, may indeed be more common than the congenital, as in insulin resistance. If acquired RTH exists, then it may not be picked up by blood assays of TH and TSH. An appropriate test to assess TH action in peripheral tissues is therefore greatly desired.
Underactive thyroid: Deciding whether or not to treat subclinical hypothyroidism
Created: October 8, 2014; Last Update: August 10, 2017; Next update: 2020.
Subclinical (latent) hypothyroidism means that the thyroid gland is still producing enough thyroid hormones. But some blood values may suggest the early stages of a hormone deficiency. Experts don’t agree on whether subclinical hypothyroidism should be treated. It’s not clear in which cases treatment would have advantages.
If you already have noticeable (“overt” or “manifest”) hypothyroidism, the thyroid is no longer producing enough thyroid hormones. Thyroxine is the most important of the thyroid hormones. It helps regulate many of the body’s functions to balance your metabolism. Too little thyroxine can cause a number of different health problems. The symptoms range from cold hands to physical weakness, difficulty concentrating and depression. Hypothyroidism can be treated easily by taking a tablet containing the thyroid hormone once a day. These tablets act to replace the thyroxine that is not being produced. This usually makes the symptoms disappear completely.
Experts don’t agree on which TSH levels should be considered too high. Some suggest that TSH levels of over 2.5 milliunits per liter (mU/L) are abnormal, while others consider levels of TSH to be too high only after they have reached 4 to 5 mU/L.
Both children and teenagers as well as older people have somewhat higher TSH levels than middle-aged people. Because of this, thyroid specialists have been debating whether a higher threshold should be used for these age groups. Being severely overweight and certain medications can also increase TSH.
Does thyroxine treatment have side effects?
No good-quality research is available on the side effects of treating subclinical hypothyroidism with thyroxine, but it’s generally considered to be a well-tolerated drug. Because the body usually produces this hormone on its own, there are no problems if the dose is correct. If it’s too high though, side effects can’t be ruled out. Possible side effects include heart problems like atrial fibrillation or a racing heartbeat.
