Blood Test Tsh Levels
Can you please tell me, should a blood test of TSH levels show problems with the parathyroid gland?
I had a blood test, the TSH level was 5.69. I am seeing my primary care physician today. Do i need life long meds? Can i breastfeed? Can i conceive?
I had a blood test. The TSH level was 3.18, free T4 18.6 and free T3 4.3.Is it safe to try to concieve or is it harmful to baby?
Maybe less med,,,: Your ranges are upper normal to slightly above normal. It would be a good idea to get your meds readjusted by your doctor first and then think of conceiving. Also your thyroid meds might need to be adjusted during your pregnancy. It would be a good idea to talk to your doctor and plan this out with him/her for the best result. Best of luck. ...Read more
Overdose of levothyroxine? I took a blood test and my TSH level is 0.174 mul and i also take 75mcg of levothyroxine, what's wrong!?

Get a physical exam,: It would be best to get a physical exam with blood pressure readings and a thyroid panel if you didn't get it to go along with the tsh.
