What does 1.4 Thyroid mean?

Commented on August 23, 2013

Excuse my ignorance but I just spoke to my doctor who said my thyroid was "optimal" and at 1.4. She said the ideal range is between 1-2.

I always thought I had a fast metabolism because I eat whatever I want and I really don't put on weight...that runs in my family, too. But I guess my metabolism isn't fast at all? Elsewhere I've seen people say that 1.4 is slow, or even close to the danger zone.

I guess I'm just confused. Can someone make sense of this for me?

if you don't have any hypothyroid symptoms, then 1.4 is fine imo. tsh varies through the day anyway, ie it will be higher in the morning & when fasted
