Hi my mum s 67 &she has an hyperthyroidism, TSH 0.01 but t4&t3 r normal&she has an ovarian cyst wiz ca125 444. Is it cancer?

Possibly: Tumor markers are to be taken in context with the clinical picture because they can go up in non malignant situations and there can be some debate on what number should be considered abnormal. That said, 444 is quite elevated. Rather than freaking out, make sure she sees a good gyn and gets this properly evaluated. Best wishes to you. ...Read more

What can you about 0.00 levels of tsh in hyperthyroidism?

What can you about 0.00 levels of tsh in hyperthyroidism?

Comply: Forgive my frankness. You are not treating a lab value. There is no home remedy or "pop" cure. You need to accept medication, surgery, or radioactive iodine for your hyperthyroidism, or you will die from it like thousands of others over the years. I suspect that you already are aware of this. Glad you were diagnosed. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi
i am hyperthyroid and use to take 350mcg utroxin.I left taking mediine since 3years.Now i went for normal chekup and my TSH was516. What to do?

See endocrinologist: Your TSH level of 516 is remarkably elevated, strongly suggesting hypothyroidism and a requirement now to take supplemental thyroxine. It is not uncommon after ablative treatment of hyperthyroidism to overshoot the goal of "normal", and end up hypothyroid needing replacement therapy. ...Read more

Get evaluated: You have autoimmune thyroid disease and need further testings. You need to check ft4 and ft3 and probably graves' antibodies as well to see the degree of hyperthyroidism and help determine the cause. A thyroid uptake and scan might be necessary. Please see your physician to get this evaluated and treated. ...Read more

Having hyperthyroidism symp. Initial test showed low end norm TSH, elevT4. 2 mo later no better, but now test results fall in normal range. What next?

Thyroid studies: Thyroid problems should be fully evaluated. If you had hyperthyroidism that was transient, you may have an autoimmune problem like Hashimoto's disease, but it could also be Grave's disease. You should have thyroid antibody studies done and repeat your thyroid function testing, TSH, T4 and T3 (liothyronine). It might also be prudent to scan you thyroid to make sure there are no nodules or lumps. Best of luck ...Read more
