Most medical professionals only look at TSH levels for the diagnosis and treatment of low thyroid. The problem with this is there are six patterns of low thyroid that may cause problems and not affect your TSH levels. If TSH is only looked at for diagnosis, something is bound to be missing. Additionally, the lab normals for TSH are greatly contested. The Endocrine Society changed the TSH normal lab levels to 1.8 to 3.0 and most lab normals have yet to catch up. This is why your lab work may come back “normal” even though you’re experiencing one or more of the symptoms above. Dr. Starling takes a unique approach to thyroid help using neurological and functional medicine to get to the root cause of the issue.
