Understand these Crucial Hormones
Your endocrine system generates a multitude of hormones that serve crucial functions in your body. One of the most important is the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Created in the pituitary gland, TSH is a precursor hormone. This means TSH is essential for the thyroid gland to release its hormones thyroxin (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). It is also essential that the body have enough free T3 and free T4 available.

TSH, Free T3 and Free T4 Levels
Having balanced levels of TSH, free T3 and free T4 is crucial for your thyroid health and overall wellness. In addition, checking reverse free T3 levels and thyroid antibodies can be included in a comprehensive thyroid exam. Both high TSH levels and low TSH levels can cause serious health problems.
TSH, T3 and T4 imbalance can cause serious health problems and numerous symptoms. Most of these symptoms are signs of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism:
- Weight gain
- Hair loss
- Memory loss
- Rapid heart beat
Thyroid Hormone Replacement
Correcting your TSH, T3 and T4 levels revolves around supplementing your natural thyroid production. This is done with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT uses free T3 and free T4 that’s chemically identical to what your body produces to naturally rejuvenate your thyroid.
