Can someone tell me if it is possible for your blood tests to show hypothyroidism even if you don't have an underactive thyroid?
Thats how we tell: Screen with Thyroid Stimulating Hormone(TSH) and follow up testing with T4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels. There are 2 main differrent types of Hypothyroidism, with the most common being underactive thyroid whicvh would cause the T4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels to be low and the TSH to be high.

Accutane levels: An 80 mg dose of 14c-isotretinoin as a liquid had a half-life of 90 hours.

After 5-6 half lives you should be essentially free of drug. Levels can be done but may be quite costly. If you want to become pregnant would wait a week or more. ...Read more

Is it possible to get home tests which tell you if you have adrenal insufficiency or problems with the gland?
Yes: The 'normal' TSH level is determined statistically, not clinically. Some people in the upper part of the 'normal' range will have symptoms and will benefit from treatment. This is similar to people on thyroid hormone treatment who have an increase in tsh, due to further failure of the thyroid, report recurence of symptoms and improvement with adjustment of their treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
