Do you have the symptoms of hypothyroidism? Have you been told that your thyroid lab tests are normal? If so, this video is for you.
The reason for this discrepancy has to do with how doctors look at thyroid lab tests and the results of those tests.
Doctors are trained to look at a very broad reference range which includes people who are both healthy and unhealthy.
A better way to look at your thyroid lab tests is by narrowing down the reference range to what I call “optimal” levels.
You can use these optimal levels to tell if your thyroid is ACTUALLY working correctly.
In addition, you’ll also find that there are far more thyroid lab tests in my recommended set when compared to the TSH and maybe free T4 that your doctor might order.
By looking at all of these thyroid lab tests (TSH, free t3, free t4, total t3, reverse T3, thyroglobulin antibody, and anti TPO antibody) you will get a much better picture of thyroid function.
