Just a quick question for those who have been diagnosed and have their Drs "insight"
A person who has a TSH range within the NHS range of 0.27 - 4.2 is considered "normal", symptomatic or not and wont be treated. Yet many have a result over this range and they won't treat until a TSH of over 10 is achieved....so what is the point in having the range limit as 4.2? In addition to this, people who are diagnosed are given treatment aim to get a result of about 1 in the range for TSH in order to be considered as being optimally medicated. Why? Why dont they say "It's ok your result is below 10, you should feel brilliant! People who are diagnosed are told they should then be aiming for a TSH of about 1. Why if the range goes up to 4.2? (Or 10 for consideration of treatment) None of it makes sense? If TSH is so important to Drs why the disparity?
