Seems like it's going well, but it's too early to say for sure.

However, it makes me really, really tired! (Apparently this is cos it lowers stress hormones.) Yesterday I took it right before bed time and it worked well. Apparently if you take it at night it absorbs better too. Trying to avoid taking it too close to any dairy too, as calcium inhibits absorption of t4.
I do remember you posting that - but how do I check that the t3 is there?
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
