Individual Variations in T4, T3: Clue to Subclinical Thyroid Disease

This article introduces an entirely novel concept: patients may actually have lab values within normal range that are abnormal for that particular patient. All sarcasm aside, I will always ask for patients’ prior bloodwork so that I can begin to evaulate all values, not just those that fall outside of the reference range for the lab. I fell that subclinical thyroid disease is underdiagnosed and undertreated in Western medicine and articles like this can begin to pave the way towards an individualized approach to lab values.
