Re: TSH - Why it's useless!

I'm sorry but I cannot allow this assassination of the TSH test to go without comment. The scientific and medical literature contains many hundreds of authoritative articles that attest to its proven clinical value. If it is as bad as you say then why were more than 20 million TSH tests performed i...

Re: Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is caused by too little thyroid hormone in the system (hypothyroidism). Have you had a Thyroid Function Test (TFT) done and, if so, what are the results with reference ranges? You need to get a your TSH, free T4 (thyroxine) and free T3 (triiodothyronine) done (the last one is important ...

Re: For the experts...

Dr Kerbel, you are a breath of fresh air. Thank you so much for being so honest and open with your response. I so wish you were my doctor! There is a fundamental problem in that the BTA and the RCP continue to confuse the definitions of Hypothyroidism, but because this is so long, I have put in a di...

Two physiologically different definitions for HypoT!

First, thank you for organising this Thyroid 'talkhealth forum' and giving us the opportunity to ask the expert panel questions.

Re: Being weaned off thyroid replacement. Please advise!

I would be grateful if my question above could be answered. I would also be grateful if any of the Expert can tell me what they would do to lower extremely high cortisol metabolites?

Re: internal trembling

Your GP should be getting onto the phone to the lab technician demanding that the do it. :evil: At my insistence, mi...

TSH - Why it's useless!

Not only are patients with OBVIOUS hypothyroid symptoms being told they have no thyroid problem because of a “normal” TSH (i.e. a TSH number in range), they are being held hostage to the TSH range when on thyroid medications, EVEN THOUGH the patient continues to have typical hypothyroid symptoms whi...

Re: reactions to levothyroxine

What I mean is that normal levothyroxine has several fillers in, even talcum powder! If we have a reaction to the tablet, it is usually the fillers that don't agree with us. You are speaking for everyone when you should be speaking for yourself. Levothyroxine does NOT work for everyone... with or w...
