: On my lab tests I see that the normal TSH range is .035-5.50. Mine was 1.49 and not sure where that falls on the spectrum. If your TSH is a higher number does that mean you are "more" hypothyroid or is it the other way around. I know I fall withink normal limits but was wondering if my values were closer to hypo or hyper.
Your TSH level would be considered to be optimal. You are right in mid range and studies are showing that the ideal should be between 1-2 now.
But the most important thing is...how do you feel? The TSH is not the end all and be all to determine a thryoid problem. Also we are all individuals
and feel "our" best on different levels. So please tell us...how do you feel? Why did your Doctor run a TSH test?
