2. TSH Tests

TSH tests are simple and widely available. The required blood test takes fewer than five minutes, is close to painless, and can be analyzed quickly. A normal TSH level is typically from .04 to 4.0 milli-international units per liter. Certain medications can affect these results, so people who take the test should inform their doctor of all of their current medications and supplements beforehand.
