... Please post the results and ranges for TSH, free T4, free T3, and the antibodies. They absolutely may not be as "normal" as you're led to believe, and we can help you determine if your MD is missing something. TSH above 2 is suspect, even if it's still within range.

... Hi Crystal, I can't help on your dosing although I think I've heard of higher doses than 100mcg often enough.

I've had several ANAs over the last few years and they have all been positive and my gp... (7 replies)
