Episode - High vs. Low TSH, Balancing the TSH


High vs. Low TSH (How can I balance my TSH?)

TSH is a pituitary hormone that communicates with the thyroid gland and essentially tells it to produce more thyroid hormone.

As a result, when someone has hypothyroidism – low thyroid hormones – typically, they’ll have elevated thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. On the other hand, when someone has hyperthyroidism – elevated thyroid hormones – they’ll generally have lower TSH levels.

Today, I’m sharing the foundational details you need to know about TSH and how to balance TSH levels, whether you have hypo- or hyperthyroidism.


During this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • Different considerations for balancing TSH levels in hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
  • Reference and optimal ranges for TSH according to different labs and practitioners
  • Medication and natural agents for balancing TSH
  • Hormones to be tested in a comprehensive thyroid panel
  • How long it can take for medications versus natural agents to impact hormone levels


As always, I hope you found this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
