Why am I still having thyroid symptoms when my labs are normal?

 

When a low functioning thyroid is suspected, your doctor will typically run a TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) blood test.  This is all that’s needed to be put on a thyroid replacement drug.  Millions of people have “normal” labs but still feel sick and tired.

 

If you are still having low thyroid symptoms, something is not being addressed.
