hi

i wanted to ask where i could get a copy of something professional to give to my endo and my friends endo who are unaware about the change in the ranges - or the intrepretation of such for the TSH test.

Thanks so much for this information.

Re: New Range

I don't understand why it seems that so many doctors are unaware of the newer ranges? Why doesn't this type of information get dispersed better?

Re: New Range

Are you talking about the new TSH lower limit of 3.0 or the newer thinking that a sustained level of over 2.5 is indicative of hypo?
