Some docs will check TSH and then think that if its normal range - problem solved.
So docs thing that near TSH=1.0, but many feel hypo unless TSH is pushed very low.
Body temperature is the best measure of overall thyroid function. One can use body temperature as a dosing guide.
Oral 98.8 when you first wake up and near 98.6 during the afternoon.
Some do not convert T4–>T3 adequately and need to take T3 to feel well.

You use iodized salt now? Were you using iodized salt prior to your thyroid problems?
yup, i’ve read most of your threads… thanks for the info, by the way.
i don’t really use salt, in general.
i need to start tracking my temp… i have a new doc i’m hopeful will test/try more things, but if not, i have more baseline bloodwork than i ever have and will be able to manage things on my own for once…
