  1. Yikes - a TSH that high is definitely too high IMO. The newer ranges ARE between .3 and 3.0, I agree. I have thyroid disease for 18 years. I've learned through years of research and becoming my own champion that a TSH near 5.0 makes me feel miserable. Mine hovers (treated on armour thyroid) right around 1.0 for me to feel well. Check info on for tons of great information about thyroid testing, optimal ranges, and treating for symptoms, not just a number on a lab test. Good luck!
  2. I agree with hiding them - works great to get extra veggies into kids, too. I grate zucchini into tomato sauce and chili, and add tiny chopped vegetables to soups. If they're chopped very small and cooked well, they blend nicely with the rest of the recipe.
  3. Thanks! As someone newly diagnosed, I'm always happy to have more resources.
