Wilson disease refers to the reverse of T3 in the system -  a conversion of T4 into stored T3.

The protacol of releasing the stored hormone is to use direct T3 hormone ( ie Cytomel) for a certain amount of weeks until the conversion lag is released.

This must be discussed and monitored with your doctor closely.

If the reverse T3 released in large quantities - you could hyper elevate to quickly.
