Hooray!! A handy “Lab Values reference card”
It will show you where we know lab results need to be as far as being “OPTIMAL”. Optimal means the good results will not go away like lower results will…sooner or later!
Understanding where our labs should fall is crucial in getting well. This two-sided reference card, 4″ x 8″ with different labs per side, and painstakingly created by Janie A. Bowthorpe, is meant to be handy and within reach.
You can even use it as a bookmark in your new books–the updated revision of Stop the Thyroid Madness, or the book Hashimoto’s: Taming the Beast!
The bottom line is that lab results are NOT about falling anywhere in those ridiculous ranges. It’s about where we fall in those ranges. How do we know?? From years and years of observations of lab results and as reported on Stop the Thyroid Madness, compiled over the years by Janie Bowthorpe. We see “where” it should be falling when all symptoms are removed, and when the good results LAST. Staying non-optimal means symptoms can return or never go away.
