Re: [IP] Euthyroid

Yes, it means your thyroid is in the normal range.  But let me warn you of
something.  The TSH test or "Thyroid Stimulating Hormone" test is usually
considered normal if it falls between .5 and 5 (sometimes different labs
have different ranges though).  Having said this, some people say they feel
like hell at TSH levels much less than 5.  Dead on normal is about a 1.
Some Endo's gauge you by the numbers AND how you feel.
Other Endos are "numbers" guys.  They feel that if you fall in the .5 to 5
range, you feel fine, no matter what you say.
Still other Endos consider you to be Hypothyroid if your TSH is greater than
a 2.
This TSH range thing is a constant controversy in alt.
