People start getting symptoms 🤒 even when TSH crosses 2.5. Doctors 👨⚕️ can only prescribe medication if it crosses 5. So they are handicapped in this situation.
You must look at the thyroid reports 🧪 with the lens of the optimal range, not the conventional range. Anything above 2.5 is not a normal function.
So you have the symptoms & the doctor has to wait for the complete dysfunction. Then only you will be prescribed medication 💊. Our medical system is not designed to bring our biomarkers to the functional or optimal range 💪.
Several studies show that any TSH above 2.5 is associated with metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, elevated fasting triglycerides, elevated blood pressure, and higher body mass index.
