? reverse T3: Slightly elevated TSH in the presence of normal T3 and T4 suggests a higher than average level of reverse t3. T3 is what's actually used by cells for metabolic activity; it's produced from T4 passing thru the liver. The average person makes only about 10% reverse T3, but if you make more than than you'll have subclinical hypthyroidism with normal T4 and T3 values and slightly elevated TSD. ...Read more

T3 (liothyronine) determination: Isn't helpful. If "normal" means you TSH was normal, then don't worry because everything is ok unless you're already taking some sort of thyroid medication. Ask your doctor to explain the test results, that's what they're there for. ...Read more

Level of TBG: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, if you have high level of thyroglobulin binding protein (TBG) that will make your total T4 high when free T4 may be low. However, if your TSH is in the normal range, you are not likely to be thyroid deficient. ...Read more
0.70 level of anti-TPO and very low cortisol. T3 (liothyronine) T4 is normal. What could it be?Can it be the cause of recurring gynaecomastia even after the surgery?
Anti-TPO Antibody: Is an antibody produced by your immune system that attacks your thyroid gland and causes hypothyroidism. Low cortisol is concerning for adrenal insufficiency and you may need a Cosyntropin stimulation test to evaluate. The majority of gynecomastia tends to be idiopathic or related to medications. There are rare instances of tumors producing hormones that cause the findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
