Our expert says:
Hi Ann - Your thyroid gland produces two thyroid hormones known as thyroxine (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3).
In your body T4 is slowly converted to T3.
Products containing T3 only (TERTROXIN) is therefore faster acting (and more potent) than products containing T4 only (ELTROXIN), but has stays in your body for a shorter period of time. DIOTROXIN contains both T3 and T4.
