WHAT TO DO IF YOUR TSH IS “NORMAL” AND YOU ARE ANYTHING BUT!

Professional Village Compounding Pharmacy & Medical Supplies Sacramento & #CompoundingPharmacySacramento & #CompoundingPharmacyRoseville wanted to share this with you…Most conventional physicians use the TSH test to determine if one has a thyroid disorder and to dose thyroid medications.
However, this test can often times be misleading, as levels of circulating hormones may fluctuate at different times, such as in Hashimoto’s, the person affected may fluctuate between highs and lows.
Additionally, when scientists first set the “normal” ranges of TSH for healthy individuals, they inadvertently included elderly patients and others with compromised thyroid function in the calculations leading to an overly lax reference range.
This resulted in people with underactive thyroid hormones being told that their thyroid tests were “normal,” based on this skewed reference range.
