Having a low TSH is felt to put patients at a higher risk of developing bone loss and cardiac problems (heart problems), but is this true?
This video will walk you through the various studies available on the topic and teach you how to think about having a suppressed TSH and how to determine if it is dangerous for your body.
There may be instances in which having a suppressed TSH will not cause long-term harm and may actually benefit you as the patient.
Learn more about how other thyroid tests can give you more information than the TSH and why you should never base your dosing off of the TSH alone.
