Paediatric Drug Trial using Thyroxine (T3) & Amphetamines for Weight Loss

I was a participant in a drug trial as a pre pubescent child for weight loss. They administered large amounts of Thyroxine (T3) and Amphetamines over a 5 years period.  As a result I cannot loose weight and have all the chronic diseases associated with that.

Is there more to look forward too?

Why is T3 not used in drug studies anymore on non hypothyroid patients?

I believe that genetic mutation took place. Is there a way of proving this?

Thyroxine is a T4 hormone; triiodothyronine is the T3 hormone.  

Since T3 is a thyroid hormone, it should not be used on non-hypothyroid people, as it can cause them to become hyperthyroid, which can have grave effects on the body, such as heart damage, excessive weight loss, bone damage, etc.

Don't know how you've prove genetic mutation, but maybe a geneticist would be able to help you.
