How high should your T4 levels be?
Some say the most important thing is to feel your best and have normal thyroid levels.
Another idea is that you must have T4 and T3 levels as high as possible.
- Which is true?
The quick summary is that you don’t need T4 or T3 as high as possible if you’re feeling well. If you don’t feel well, taking more medication is usually not the solution, even if it feels like it at first.
It is essential to make this distinction because many who chase higher levels don’t get to feel their best, miss the real cause of their symptoms, and create health risks.
