When I got my thyroid tested a couple of months ago, my TSH levels were at 3.67. When I went to my naturopath, she said that I had a borderline thyroid problem. However, I came across this release from the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists yesterday that said that "Now AACE encourages doctors to consider treatment for patients who test outside the boundaries of a narrower margin based on a target TSH level of 0.3 to 3.04."(see complete link here: http://www.aace.com/newsroom/press/2003/index.php?r=20030118 This information was actually released in January 2003.
So, according to the AACE, my thyroid level is too high. I am finishing my detox in a couple of weeks and getting my thyroid retested after that. I am wondering what the next step should be if my levels are still high......Go to a traditional endocrinologist? My whole reason for going to a naturopath was because I didn't want to go on synthroid, but I am also concerned about this finding.
