Thyroid Tip

Are you still tired despite taking thyroid medication?? The best screening tests for thyroid function are TSH , free T3, free T4. The normal screening test, TSH alone, will not tell you if you can convert stored thyroid hormone to active thyroid hormone. You could be taking thyroid medication and not be able to really use it. It is a little like having money in the bank, but as you age, your debit card stops working.
