After doing a ton of ‘google’ research and digging in to the best of my limited comprehension on our Thyroid Sticky, I see that my numbers, according to labs/doctors etc. puts me in the Mild Subclinical Hypothyroidism category.
Had my labs done thru LabCorp San Diego which used 0.45 -4.5 as ‘normal’. After a lot of research, I see that .3-3.0 is a much better range to use, especially seeing that I am only 40 and having a general distrust of the medical treatment establishment.
So from here I go on to read article after article(medical doctors) describing iodine as gasoline to the fire in my situation with a few alternative doctors calling gasoline to a car… Reading our sticky, it seems the consensus is iodine is the solution but I am just so damn confused at how there can be such a huge chasm in treatment/understanding between the 2 camps.
I’m not dissing anyone here as I have found the information here to be insightful and beneficial, just more or less questioning ‘why’ the solution might/would be iodine. Either way, I’m bummed at this test result but want to find the healthiest and most long term beneficial solution.
My symptoms that seem to align with this condition would be minor at this point but here they are; low energy, poor sleep pattern(fall asleep easy but wake up constantly) and slight depression. The TRT has helped quite a bit with the energy but I am still not where I think I should be.
Thanks in advance
