Abstract:  The author, a naturopathic doctor, focuses on symptoms of Wilson’s syndrome; patients most likely to be affected; diagnosis; causes of low body temperature; T3 therapy administration, regulation and monitoring; features of the 2-day compensating schedule; the patient log; thermoregulation variations; features of the 1-day compensating schedule; maximum dosing; additional benefits; hypothyroidism misconstrued as Wilson’s syndrome; cycling safely; thyroid medication and osteoporosis; contraindications; drug interactions; side effects; the value of the compounding pharmacist and slow-release T3 and prognosis. Tables provide information regarding a 2-day compensating schedule for doses of T3, a 1-day compensating schedule for doses of T3 and commonly prescribed dose increments taken as 1 capsule every 12 hours. Graphs representing sequential T3 cycles ending with improved thermal regulation after five cycles of slow-release T3 in a 51-year-old woman are provided. In addition, the author provides an algorithm for assessment and management of thermoregulation.
