Have you been told that your thyroid levels are all normal based on your TSH and T4 level? Or, do you seem to feel all the symptoms that correlate to low thyroid function, even when your bloods are considered ‘normal?’. If so, read on as your blood results are not everything….
What is the Thyroid?
- A gland, found in your neck
- It releases T4 and T3 - hormones that are released into our blood and have a huge effect on all of your cells and organ function.
- T4 is converted to the active form T3.
- T3 is the important one - this is the one we need to be high, to feel well.
- There are two antibodies that indicate an ‘attack’ on your thyroid gland and decrease its function: Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody and Thyroglobulin Antibody.
