NOTICE

I am not a doctor. Anything I write about hypothyroidism is purely from my own experience and should not be taken as gospel.

I created this environment so that I could share my own experiences, start a conversation and give others a place to share and be supported. No medical advice will be given here.

Thyroid deficiency is a serious condition and if you have any reason to believe you may be suffering, you should consult your GP. (And then come back here and share and find/give support).

The need to know basics about your thyroid hormones?

When looking into your thyroid’s efficiency, doctors will look at your TSH level, which is your thyroid hormone level.

Your TSH level can be anywhere from 0.3 to 3.0 to be classed as ‘normal’. That means, if you’re level is below 0.3, you’re thyroid is underactive, and is you’re level is above 3.0, you’re thyroid is overactive.

However, as you have probably noticed, the range for a ‘normal’ hormone level is HUGE. So how are you supposed to know where you sit? Basically, you don’t. So drs will keep adjusting your medication, a process that can take months, to find the right balance for you.

Your job is to stay patient and always know you’re numbers.

Even at 2.0 I was still feeling symptoms of hypothyroidism, whereas for others they feel like a new person. When it comes to TSH levels, your ‘normal’ is completely unique to you. So if you’re on medication but still feeling symptoms, don’t despair, just go back to your dr.
