TSH of 2.1 is a good level. The lower, the better (.5 - 2.0 being ideal).

>>>>>>>>>Thanks Barb! I didn't know that lower was better.

However, TSH alone does not measure how the thyroxine is getting into your cells or if you have an autoimmune form, thyroiditis or Hashimoto's. A thorough thyroid workup includes free T3 and T4 levels, thyroid antibodies, and reverse T3 tests, but few docs will order these unless you insist.

>>>>>>>>>OK

Are you already taking thyroid pills of T4 only (synthroid, levothroid)?

>>>>>>>>>No, I'm not taking any drug for the thyroid. I have reason to believe that my adrenals may be at least part of the problem....thanks Barb!
