the lab is not up to date with the ranges (.2 to 2.5, or sometimes 3.0), and the doctors are at fault i guess ... therefore, they say, "everything's normal! now off with you and live your life!! be well!!" without any further study of just why you are so pooped all the time
print off what the AACE has to say about the ranges (i think in the Info Archive near the top of the board) or you could Google "aace ranges" or some such ... my GP will only accept reputable (ie, double-blind) studies, so make sure that it's not just anecdotal ...
such a study might have been carried out by the british endo association, but i don't know it's proper name ... sometimes british doctors may think american doctors are foolish -- my experience with only one
when i lived there ... many, hopefully, will not ...
~ my GP doesn't folliow the lab ranges, my endos have -- go figure!!
