Re: thyroid

It's usually somewhere in the mid range of what is posted at your particular lab's normal reference range. Readings at the far ends can sometimes be suspicious. On TSH, regardless of the lab's range, the accepted level is between 0.30 and 3.0 and usually somewhere around 1 to 2. But the TSH also has to be read in context with the other hormone levels.

If your thyroid hormone levels look perfect, then maybe, with those symptoms, you might also wanna look into adrenal issues (maybe addison's?) or diabetes. There's other disorders that can cause symptoms that very much resemble thyroid disorders.
