What Are Normal Thyroid Levels?
Having normal thyroid levels is vital to overall health. If your thyroid levels are off, your whole body could be affected as well as your mental health. Understanding what is considered a normal level of thyroid hormones in the body can help you better monitor any potential changes.
What Is The Thyroid?
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck and is part of the endocrine system. It uses iodine to produce two different hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones are crucial for regulating metabolism and other bodily processes.
Measuring The Hormones
Both hormone levels can be tested using a simple blood test and should be monitored regularly. Your doctor will measure the levels of T3, T4, and the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
