Blood pressure reading of 120/50 is this normal also thyroid blood results TSH 0.21 and Free T4 is 19.3.. are these now within 'normal' range ?

Looks okay: If you feel okay, there is no such thing as "low blood pressure"; it need be only high enough to keep your body perfused. Whether these thyroid labs are okay depends on the units. Reference ranges are arbitrarily set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. Glad you're staying proactive. BEst wishes. ...Read more

More tests: Current test points to hypothyroidism. I recommend a free T4 and thyroid antibodies to complete the workup. It's possible that you will need thyroid hormone replacement but not until a final diagnosis is made. Please discuss this with your doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Go see your doctor: So you got your results. Whoever ordered the test(s) should have interpreted your results for you and offered you a diagnosis eg hypothyroidism & treatment plan, eg start or increase levothyroxine, then plan to recheck labs in 6wks. Communication w/your family doc is imperative. ...Read more

Hi, 31y, male. Low sperm analysis results. My blood results for : s-tsh - 1.05 miu/l; FSH - 14.9 iu/l; LH - 12.6 iu/l. Where could the problem lie?

Testicular problem: Your lh and fsh levels are elevated. This is consistent with a problem with your testicles producing both testosterone and sperm. There are many possible causes for this including genetic (klinefelters syndrome), infections (mumps), trauma, drugs. Many times we don't know why it occurred. You should see a urologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Sounds like it: In the grand scheme of things, 2 weeks means not urgent. Of course, if one has any worrisome concerns or questions, one should contact her doctor sooner. ...Read more

My last blood results showed a high TSH levels but t3andt4 in normal range. Should i see someone regarding hypotyhroidism?

My last blood results showed a high TSH levels but t3andt4 in normal range. Should i see someone regarding hypotyhroidism?

Yes: An elevated TSH indicates that your pituitary gland feels that your thyroid level is somewhat low. The fact that the T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are normal means that the problem is still mild. If you have symptoms of an underactive thyroid, treatment with thyroid hormone is indicated. If you have no symptoms, and the TSH is only mildly high, one can repeat the level in a few months and see if it has changed. ...Read more

Can they determine if a nodule is hot or cold by just going by blood work results? Such as Tsh t3 (liothyronine) & t4 levels? My t3 (liothyronine) is high at 4.3 tsh and T4 are ok

Can they determine if a nodule is hot or cold by just going by blood work results? Such as Tsh t3 (liothyronine) & t4 levels? My t3 (liothyronine) is high at 4.3 tsh and T4 are ok

Need more work up: I'm assuming you have a nodule. "Hot" or "cold" is determined by a radioactive iodine scan. A "hot" nodule may produce too much T3 (liothyronine) and/or T4, but if it did, the TSH should be low, and you say yours is normal. A "cold" nodule is more likely to be a cancer, and thyroid cancer usually does not affect the thyroid blood tests. You may need an Endocrinology consult, and a biopsy of that nodule. ...Read more
