: I will leave the other questions to others more knowledgeable in those areas.
3.6 is in the lab range but does not mean it is the right level for YOU. Many doctors believe females need to be at TSH below 2 to be well.
: My own endo is striving to get my TSH at one.
: Read my post with the URL. It is a doctor's article showing that most patients deemed normal fall in a much smaller range than the usual lab range for normal, more like the range deemed normal by the latest endo findings.
: Also, TSH does not tell what is really going on at the cell level, which is what matters. TSH only shows how much thyroid is in the blood. There is so much more to it than that.
: I was never hyperthyroid, so the other questions are beyond my experience. Blessings to find all your answers! TF
