Confusing Hypo Test Results

I've been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism for 10+ years and had taken medication for it until I lost my job and insurance about a year ago. Recently I requested a Thyroid test to restart treatment as I wasn't feeling well (exhasted, depressed, cold, thin hair, etc). My test came back in the NORMAL range.

I was under the impression once your hypo, you will always be hypo. How would this condition have cured itself? The doctor had no answers for me, basically told me to pay $100 and have it checked again soon.

  • You still have hypothyroidism. It is in most cases that it does not go away. If you have symptoms you must check your free T3 and free T4 antibodies TPO ect. and your ferritin. . . which is an iron storage. Please remember that a range is just a range, and you may feel the best somewhere outside of the range. Wellness is the key not the ink on the page. P.S.- the TSH test tests a pituitary hormone, not your thyroid hormones. The theory behind the TSH test is good considering the production of TSH normally correlates to the production of thyroid hormone VIA a feedback loop, but this is not always the case. Test the actual thyroid hormones that I listed above.Good Luck and be well"STOPTHETHYROIDMADNESS"
