How effective are Thyronamin tablets 25 mcg from Japan for hypothyroidism, thyroiditis and goiter (liothyronine sodium, Cytometol, Tertroxin)?
Thyronamin tablets contain liothronine sodium, a sodium salt form of liothyronine, a synthetic form of the levorotatory isomer of the naturally occurring thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3). It works by binding to nuclear thyroid receptors which then bind to thyroid hormone response elements of target genes. As a result, Thyronamin tablets promote gene expression that is required in basal metabolism in the body.
Who should take Thyronamin tablets 25 mcg from Japan?
Thyronamin tablets are effective for the treatment of hypothyroidism (particularly in cases of hypothyroid coma), thyroiditis and goiter. Liothyronine sodium is more active than levothyroxine and has a rapid (few hours) onset and short duration of action, making it also useful in the treatment of myxedema coma (F. S. Celi, M. Zemskova et al. “Metabolic Effects of Liothyronine Therapy in Hypothyroidism: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Crossover Trial of Liothyronine Versus Levothyroxine”. The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2011, November, 96(11): 3466–3474).
