TSH: What Your Doctor Should Know

Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is the hormone produced by your pituitary gland to control the function of your thyroid gland. A high TSH means your pituitary senses that your thyroid is underactive.

 

Many labs are misleading physicians by using outdated ranges of normal for TSH, thus preventing doctors from giving their patients the most effective thyroid treatment they need. 

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III)  demonstrated that the mean TSH in apparently normal, healthy participants is 1.4 uIU/mL.

Based upon the results of NHANES III, The National Academy for Clinical Biochemistry has recommended since 2002 that a serum TSH level between 0.5-2.0 uIU/mL be considered the optimal therapeutic target for replacement treatment of hypothyroidism.

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Thu, Oct 24, 2013

In the immediate and distant aftermath of an auto accident, you might find your quality of life compromised by a series of physical ailments whose symptoms are intense and somewhat debilitating but whose precise underlying causes are mysterious.

Getting at the heart of your ailments seems the more impossible, since your recurring discomfort occurs throughout your body, especially in your neck/head region. Also, your moments of acute pain come and go randomly or remain with you constantly, a muted unease that flares intermittently.
