This allows the body to get used to the declining hormone level and the thyroid gland can react to the sinking exogenous supply of the thyroid hormone levothyroxine (T4) and slowly increase the self-production again.
In bodybuilding, athletes speak of dosages between 200 – 400 mcg / day when levothyroxine is used for diet support.
The dosage usually begins at 100 mcg / day, is increased by 25 or 50 mcg / day every 1 – 2 days until the maximum dose of administration is reached.
At the end of the course, the dose is slowly lowered. Every 2-3 days the dosage is reduced by 25 or 50mcg / day (to zero).
It is important, That the dosage is slowly increased when starting and decreased when ending the cure so the thyroid gland will be adjusted smoothly.
