With the new year upon us, I'd like to re-visit a few of my favourite topics in health. First here is an excellent review of thyroid function and the symptoms of poor thyroid function just posted on Dr. Mercola's site. Click this link to read the whole article. I'd question only his thought that a free T3 of 260 is adequate. In my experience with many patients, this value should be closer to 300 for best results. Other than that an excellent way to brush on your knowledge of thyroid function. If you suspect you have a thyroid problem, find a physician who will order a freeT3, a freeT4, and a a TSH for you.
