Okay...it's 16.3 mU/L with a Ref Range of 3.0 - 25.0

Here's an example of what I mean...my Free T3 is a 2.31 with a bottom range of 2.30 so there's just not enough which is part of the reason I'm on Armour Thyroid. Another...my VitD is 32.4 with a bottom range of 30.0 so I'm to take about 6000iU. Some medical conditions use up VitD far more quickly by the body than normal.

Hopefully you can see why I'm asking just where 16.3 falls into the reference ranges. I'm really not being anal about this, just trying to understand this new situation.

Thanks!

I'm curious on your thoughts of a Fasting Insulin level at 16.3 with a range of 3.0 to 25.0. I know it's in the range but at times certain levels with other hormones it can be indicative of something.

So I'm putting it out there.
