I'm a little concerned about some of the advice being given here. We're ALL different and for me, my TSH level of around 2.11 is optimal. This is where I am at present. I know this is optimal for me as I track my symptoms and watch out for them like a woman possessed! If my TSH went any lower I would become hyper. So when I see a response where advice is to go lower, below 1, irrespective of symptoms I wonder if this advice and attitude, although well intentioned, is becoming as narrow as GPs who think a TSH level above 5 is also ok irrespective of symptoms... Remember that the TSH test is not a perfect science!
