The effect of L-thyroxine on the dynamics of body mass changes was investigated in the adult guinea pigs. The acute administration of thyroxine had a strong effect on their body mass. The animals receiving thyroxine had a statistically significant less increase in body mass comparing to the euthyreoid animals. However, this effect of thyroxine appears after a latent period required for a depletion of the present energetic depots and overcoming the energetic compensatory mechanisms.
