Thyroid Optimization: The Role of Normal Vs. Optimal Thyroid
“Normal” is a dangerous word. It sounds positive: you’re just like everyone else, hooray! In reality, “normal” indicates that you merely fall within the standard margin of the average unhealthy adult. If the average adult is overweight and borderline diabetic, do you really want to stay in the same lane as them? No, definitely not. That’s why there’s such a dramatic difference between normal thyroid function and optimal thyroid function. “Normal” thyroid function is imperfect. It keeps you chronically operating at 70% of your best self. Sure, you can survive like that, but it’s not how you want to live your life.
There’s no single “perfect” thyroid level. Everybody is different, which is the beauty of what we do as we individualize treatments, but with that said, most women usually feel better with natural thyroid free T3 levels between 4 and 4.4 pg/mL.
