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 💪.
This needs to be changed. With the right approach, you can keep your thyroid function within the optimal range without the medication.
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.
