I didn't know mine was low, until I went to the ER with chest pains. The ER doc checked my thyroid with 2 tests. He explained the test docs do is very inaccurate, the second tells the truth. My doctor refuses to do the second test (t-3-4?). Anyway, I started putting iodine tincture (your thyroid needs iodine) on my forearm (inside) and it is helping. What else can I do? I had to have 5-bypass, and the ER doc said a low thyroid can cause plaque buildup.
