Yes: You need to make sure you're not hypothyroid. Get the test repeated with the free hormones. If low, you need you treat. The baby needs thyroid hormone to optimally develop. ...Read more

TSH: TSH is the level of thyroid stimulating hormone, and if it is elevated means that you have hypothyroidism. Your physician should study other hormone levels and the gland itself by ultrasound or CT Scan to determine the cause. Bilirubin is a byproduct of hemoglobin produced by the liver. These two levels being affected may not have anything to do with your intake of fluoxetine. ...Read more

Could a TSH blood test detect low testosterone levels?

Could a TSH blood test detect low testosterone levels?

No: Tsh or thyroid stimulating hormone is only good for assessing thyroid function (either good, overactive or underactive). With that said, during that same blood draw, your blood could potentially be checked for testosterone to determine how much you have. This is best done in the morning. Remember that we really should treat the person (and symptoms), not just a number. Make sure benefit > risk. ...Read more

I recetly got a blood test done, my FT3 is 4.6 FT4 is 13.41 however TSH is 8.66. How can I lower my TSH levels? Are these levels alarming or normal?

Thyroidologist: This elevated level of tsh is indicative of an underactive thyroid and should be accompanied by abnormally low levels of ft3 and ft4. A thyroidologist or endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate you and advise you about these values. Make sure that you inform him /her about any medications or supplements you may be taking and bring a record of your previous test results or endocrine therapy ...Read more

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. That way the doctor can discuss the TSH result with possible symptoms and blood pressure readings to see if there's one or more than one problem to explain this. Good 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!?

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!?

Need dose adjustment: Whenever someone has low thyroid hormone the dose of levothyroxine may need to be adjusted occasionally. If you are on 75 mcgs and the TSH is low then your dose needs to be adjusted down a little bit. Tsh stimulates the thyroid to make more hormone so when it is low there is a bit too much around. If TSH is high then the dose needs to be adjusted upwards. It is common to have to make these changes. ...Read more

Does HIGH mean BAD?: Please explain to me if you believe HIGH means BAD in your case or ABNORMAL? I don't see how those 2 numbers BY THEMSELVES can have a direct connection to your taking fluoxetine. If TSH is abnormally high many other tests should be affected. You have to be careful about overestimating isolated laboratory values.
