No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your TSH is in the normal range. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Check your labs: You might ask your doctor to check your thyroid function studies, as your levothyroxin dose may need adjusting. Some people also say they feel better when using other formulations (such as Armour Thyroid or nature-throid). These contain a blend of T4 and T3 (liothyronine) (active form of thyroid hormone). Levothyroxine (synthroid) contains only t4; your body must convert this to T3 (liothyronine) as needed. Discuss w/your doc. ...Read more

Thyroid: Most US laboratories will report a TSH of 3 as "normal," but most endocrinologists in 2014 consider normal or be under "roughly" 2.5 (dissenting opinions welcome.) It's so close you might get different opinions from different doctors whether this makes you hypothyroid or not, but it's a close call either way.
