what is potasium/sodium ratio?
do i need to just watch the salt and sodium in the foods I eat?
40-50 % of the population has some form of thyroid imbalances so normal for people is TSH >2 can indicate hypothyroidism and ft3 <3.3 and ft4 < 1.2 can also indicated this. Dr mariano has made this issue very clear and dr's need to treat symptoms rather then numbers on the scale.
