I am told by a Consultant surgeon that ranges are based upon the normal average 1000 people who use that blood lab! and this time he promises me its not a money budget thing ! and 5X of people will go either way on the range and drs should allow for this !
So have I been given a dud deal as most other places I see have a T3 top of range is at 6 plus? and where i get tested it is only 4.9
My T3 feels better at 5.9 and bit over but I get told i'm over dosed..
is it possible most of the normal people may have just had a lower T3 at my Lab than other areas it seems a bit of a bad way to set ranges by to be honest
Is this a fair way to set a range as don't most people have bloods done as they are unwell , unless they are having an operation to which I don't think they test the thyroid unless you are on medication or they suspect Thyroid disease ?
