I feel its true, because I feel bad all over and hypothyroidism is affecting me greatly. I tell my doctor all of my symptoms. The depression and brain fog is the worse and all he says is my TSH is normal and my thyroid is fine..i need AD's and other medical test. I just want my old self back. I feel stuck, with no help. My doctor won't even LISTEN- he cut me off entirely.

Very interesting article and it makes sense. After all, TSH is released by the pituitary to regulate thyroid function. It's much more about the pituitary than the thyroid. rT3 is also elevated in high stress states, and there is plenty of data to show what elevated cortisol does to insulin receptor sensitivity and its impact on weight gain.
I always make sure patients order all 4 of those tests. It's amazing how difficult it is to get most endos and MDs to order them. It can be so frustrating. It's the physiology!
Thanks for sharing that.
