In this snippet of an interview with David Brownstein, MD he describes the problems inherent in not only thyroid testing, but all forms of medical testing.
The thyroid is a “sentinel organ.” That means it’s sensitive to changes in the outer and inner environments. Thyroid function is particularly impaired by a high toxic body burden or a history of extreme dieting. The main sign of that is that we tend to be cold, in fact some authorities insist that measuring body temperature is a much better way of assessing thyroid function than TSH.
