Keep in mind, that even if the test results come back in range, it doesn't mean your thyroid is working properly. With thyroid, the range is only a gauge and being in range is not good enough, a lot depends on where in the range your results fall. For men, the FREE levels and totals generally need to be at least at mid range. To find mid range, take the high and low number of the lab range, add them together and then divide by 2, this would be mid range and your number should be at least that high.
Please keep us updated.
