Thoroughly enjoyed the results from using t3 with tren and dnp.. but it took forever to get back to normal once coming off it, like several months. I had minor swelling, but nothing at all compared to what your pics are showing. Was concerned I may have permanently accelerated my heart rate.

My resting pulse rate has always been high even when hammering cardio, typically 82-85. During that time it was pushing 110 BPM.

I probably should have posted these early before the thread runs its course but I want everyone to see what I meant by bloating. The first one is how my ankles were and I normally have skinny ankles. You can even see my sock line. The second is my midsection, all ab definition is completely gone. Anyone that knows me knows how lean I stay.

On a positive note, your calves sure did look big.

Don't forget the swelling/burnt sensation of the tongue.

Ow how could I forget that?! It was like having hot wings 24/7.

One other side to add; it thinned my hair some but Doc said that should return in a few months.

Hey man, thank you for sharing this. t3 is one of those compounds I've been thinking about taking. I'm at that stage where it would be helpful. After reading this, it's definitely off the table for me. Nevertheless, you handled this really well by responding quickly. Me? I wait for things to get bad before I go to a doctor. I have a strong feeling that you just saved me a trip to the emergency room. Very much appreciated, Snake.

A few months back I ran some T3 and wanted to share my experience with my UG family.

This will be a long post but it's important and worth your time. Started the T3 at 50 mcg, ran it for about 5 -7 days. Truth be known, I was going to compete in a BB show and was on schedule 5 weeks out when the wheels came off.


I wasn't feeling so good and since the T3 was the only factor I never had in the mix, decided to stop it. Shortly after stoping the T3, my ankles started to swell and I was holding water. It was concerning enough to get to the Dr. Doc ordered a scan that I got in for the next day. The night of the chest MRI my Dr, who I know personally called me and said he wanted me to get to the ER. Yeah, Oh fuuk! So I grabbed some clothes and off to the ER. They started running tests at the hospital; a lot of tests! Blood work, this scan, that scan. I think they have imaging of every part of my insides. The blood work came back off on some things that were never out of range. Men, here's why doing blood work is important, I had BW done 1 month earlier, 3 months before, and 6 months before that so I had a baseline.


One thing that came back way off was my T3, T4 and TSH, almost bottomed out. Here comes my disclaimer; I'm not a Dr so I am going on what the experts said, what I know and what I researched from a hospital bed. Apparently, there's a bio-loop with the thyroid and pituitary gland. At no time should all of them be bottomed out. As for the water retention, the thyroid hormones were causing very low albumin and protein levels. Albumin holds the water in the cells and when the levels are low, the water is released into the body causing the swelling.


I really didn't want to mention immediately that I was on gear because I thought they would blame that and send me home that night. That was another story but I told the Cardio Dr. about the gear the next day.


In conclusion, 3 nights in the hospital and they sent me home with for the most part, no answers. The swelling was gone and they said to follow up with my GP which I did 3 2 days later. I did BW 3 weeks later and my protein was in mid range and albumin was just a tick under range. T3, T4, TSH and some other thyroid specific tests came back in range.


I still need to hit another BW test in a month but all my issues pointed to the T3 use. I spoke to a few guys who had the same issue with T3. Maybe you will be fine using T3, then again, you may not.
what brand T3 did you use? I've never heard of anything this concerning. Glad you figured it out.

That’s scary bro! Ya t3 is definatley not a mild thing I did it once lost a fuck ton of muscle mass and hair never again stuffs dangerous af. Mind you I didn’t know what I was doing and had no business taking it but I didn’t exceed 100mcg and I didn’t run it long either and it only thing I got from it was negative

Thanks. I'm back to normal now but it was the worse I ever felt. Pre-comp makes you feel like shit anyway. Getting 10 lbs of the 16 I had lost made it more bearable.

The company was Peptide Pros. They are a solid company.

Oh fuuk ya it thinned my hair notably. At 55 y.o. you hope it returns. I can see the hair filling out now but I read it's a 3-6 month return time

Did you have the fatigue and bloat?

You're knowledge and experience has not advanced far enough to make that statement.

Would I be correct in assuming you have never cycled?

I’ve never cycled? I’ve been cycling for 14 years bro and t3 fucked me up bad. So that’s just my opinion to not use it unless you actually need it in your sport to win and by know what your doing I mean a doctor monitoring.

I don’t think it’s a good drug for recreational users it’s not some beginner shit like test you can actually fuck yourself up very nicely In a short amount of time with t3 once again this is just my opinion but I don’t see how that can even be disputed! But I would like to hear your take on how I’m wrong……..I’m here to learn stuff. And anything I say it’s because I’ve done it to myself lol it’s not some bs I’m parroting from the internet bro but everyone is diffrent so what fucked me up could be just fine for a lot of other ppl but in my experience be very very careful with t3 if it’s your first go. I though I knew what I was doing because my freind advising me is a top ifbb pro but clearly it didn’t agree with me at all
