Your Weight-Fate Hormone

A "normal" thyroid test score may actually mean you're susceptible to weight gain, finds a new study. Your thyroid produces a metabolism hormone called TSH; a TSH reading between 0.5 and 5.0 is considered normal. But researchers at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in Massachusetts found that women with TSH levels closer to 5.0 gained 4 pounds more on average over 3.5 years than women with lower TSH levels. Medication can regulate TSH if necessary.
