So, had high hopes for my new primary care physician regarding my TRT, they did an initial test on me to see where my levels are at. Been off any medications for over a year. Total Test came back at 325 and TSH was 3.1,
which according to the blood work results were in range So no more testing will be done.
I live in Atlanta, I could travel - I was just hoping my new regular dr would take care of it so insurance would pick up part of it. I am more worried about my TSH then my Total Test at the moment. The range went for .something all the way up to 5. My last doc said anything over 3 was defined as hypothyroid given the latest standard. I should make an appointment and just go see dr. john I guess.
Thanks. Exactly, but my previous dr just ran the entire panel, and the active t3 and t4 were low and he said you could tell that by the tsh given the new guidlines.
sorry but that is not correct. TSH is the signal your brain sends the thyroid to prpduce hormones. If for some reason, your thyroid isnt working properly, no amount of tsh will matter. Therefore tsh just doesnt tell you much.
