I think it curious that you say skew. Then diagnosis or medication would not be needed? Helping the body work better, with a goal to avoiding hormone supplements, is my hope. There is no hormone supplementation regime which even comes close to matching the pattern and sensitivity of normal hormone release. I would not wish that "treatment" on anyone, if it can be avoided.

Well, if somebody made the situation worse, we wouldn't likely know, as no test series had yet been conducted.....but I again will state that I know of no such cases, except those where extraordinary and toxic intakes of supplements have occurred. (As there are always conditions underlying statements I make, I will say that some people have very "fragile" thyroid function, akin to "brittle" diabetics, and what might be a minor intervention in others might lead to exaggerated disturbance in the "fragile" members....but you only learn that by 'doing the experiment'.)

That's my philosophy, applied to this case.
