Can You Have Hyperthyroidism Without A Low Tsh
With low TSH: 0, 09 (ref 0, 4000 - 4, 000) & 5, 9 fT3/rt3 rate could mean I have T3 resistance?I`m having both hypo and hyperthyroid symptoms.Thank you
With low TSH levels hyperthyroid is off the table right? What other issues, full normal blood panel, could cause a major weight loss?
Low tsh?: Normal TSH values fall within a range. If the TSH is low, or in other words, below the lower limit of normal, it may suggest your thyroid is overactive. When your body produces too much thyroid hormone, the brain tries to compensate by making less tsh, and therefore the levels show up low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
In hyperthyroidism, would a low TSH be caused by a pituatary tumor? If so, what would blood tests indicate?
I'm concerned. I have a low TSH and high t4. I'm symptomatic of hyperthyroidism. Can't take ptu or tapazole. What happens now?
Diagnosis first: You may or may not have grave's disease. Your doctor needs to determine the cause of your test results before treating test results. Meanwhile, if not contraindicated, a beta blocker could be useful in terms of treating hyperthyroid symptoms.

Hyperthyroidism and weight gain, can a low TSH level cause weight gain? And how would menopause effect TSH level?
No: Rarely hyperthyroidism manifested by a low TSH and elevated thyroid hormones can cause increased hunger leading to weight gain. Most hyperthyroids lose (muscle) weight. Menopause has no effect on TSH levels, but as we age hypothyroidism with increased TSH becomes more likely. 20% of women on medicare have elevated TSH and have frank or subclinical hypothyroidism. ...Read more
What could cause hyperthyroidism if it's not graves, hasmitos, pituitary problem? I have low TSH 0.01 but normal free T3 and T4 and normal total t3t4
Already answered: Hi. I already told you: hyper-functioning ("hot") thyroid nodule is most likely, but a phase of subacute thyroiditis (ST) is certainly a possibility. Following thyroid function over time, or a 123-I thyroid scan (and uptakes) would tell the difference. This all assumes you're not surreptitiously TAKING thyroid hormone (which would look like ST, but unlike ST would have a suppressed thyroglobulin). ...Read more
