Well, I guess they are normal. I got the exact number and even the lower standards they are normal for. I don't know why, but I am almost disappointed. I guess I felt like if I found a problem I could fix it. I feel like I am grabbing at straws. The number was 1.58. I know the doctors said they were completely normal, but I just wanted to post it here for you ladies feedback just the same.
Yep, right smack dab in the middle! It could still be that your Free T3 is off but IDK that I'd bother with a TSH like that. Maybe someone else can be a little bit more helpful. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but thanks so much for the update!
my levels are normally a 4.4 before being pregnant & now its a 1.7 & 1.9 which is way to low for me, now I am sleeping 12hrs/day my skins is dry & itchy & my hair is falling out in handfuls everyday!! my ob didnt want to change my dosage but today my family doc sided w/me & up'd it a lil bit.... yea what is normal for one person is not normal for another - ya there is a normal range but it may not be our normal.
Some women actually feel better when their TSH is a bit off. I personally feel best when my TSH is fairly low - as long as my free T3 & T4 are fine. The closer my TSH is to normal, the less energy I have. Also, some women have subclinical thyroid issues, where their TSH is normal but their free T's might be off. The thyroid can do weird things - 2 months ago my TSH was hyperthyroid but my free T3 and free T4 were both measuring hypothyroid. So, if everything else checks out ok and you can't get the problem figured out, I'd suggest getting a full thyroid panel done - you may have to shop around a bit for a doc who will do that when your TSH is normal though.
