Episode 435: Unwrapping the subclinical hypothyroidism enigma

In episode 435, Mike and James unravel the evidence around thyroid testing. We talk about an approach to deal with the lack of research and the variation in the measurement of TSH and many other things. At the end we both complain of fatigue, dry skin, puffy eyes, anxiety and depression – and immediately get a TSH test.
