What causes tsh level to go up and down?

Variations

Thyroid_gland
in your level of thyroid hormone. TSH is secreted in spurts, and sometimes the lab test can detect a peak one time and a valley the next, but it's usually a fairly reliable indicator.

Dr. David Sneid answered:

What causes tsh level to go up and down without medication?

Thyroid inflammation

can cause variable tsh results. Tsh tests are very sensitive but often not real reproducible. Levels vary by time of day. TSH is secreted in spurts and may vary depending upon when it's drawn. Plus some labs are better and more reliable than others.

Dr. Donald R. Nino answered:

Back in April, 12 I got my levels checked - TSH 3.24 & T3 was 2.8. But now my TSH is 2.57. Is that good that the TSH is going down some?

Thyroid

Hormone
In general, a TSH level that is less tha 4 is considered normal. The TSH is a measure of the hormone that stimulates the thyroid to produce its hormone. A higher TSH means your body wnats more thyroid hormone. Your doctor should be able to explain all of your numbers.

Are there any specific foods or products that can naturally enhance ones TSH levels? Would like to avoid a low dosage of medication if I can!

No

Hormone
There are no such foods such as that. If your TSH level is low, that means your thyroid is overproducing thyroid hormone and that could be a goiter or other thyroid disease - you definitely need that checked and treated. If your thyroid hormone is low, then your TSH would be high. In that case, you need to take some form of thyroid replacement med - there are different options for that.

Can there be any natural remedies for high levels of tsh?

Yes

Thyroid_stimulating_hormone_-_blood_test
If you call 'natural' the ones from animal thyroid, there exist several. Armour thyroid is one. The most commonly used form of thyroid is levothyroxine generic or brand which is manufactured but identical to the human T4 which our body produces. The problem is that sometimes an individual requires more T3 than the amount that can come from T4. Armour thyroid has more T3 relative to the T4 content.

27 yrs old, on 5 th day of period my LH 6.52, FSH 5.20, PROLACTIN 10.91, TSH 2.9, what is it means, can i concive naturally?

Unknown

Tsh
too little information to make that determination. From a hormonal standpoint, your numbers seem reasonable but most people do day 3 testing. There are other possible things that could be hindering pregnancy besides just basic hormones. You need a full evaluation by a fertility specialist to know for sure what your particular issues are. Good Luck

My TSH is low again Iam hypre dr want to treat me in 6wks with radiation iodine. Why am I going up and down. Is this rare? Help in understanding?

Maybe active areas,,

Thyroid_gland
Your TSH normally goes down in response to the thyroid making more thyroid hormone, which can be due to nodules there that make more than they should. That may be why the radioactive iodine is used, to destroy a possible nodule. You're also on Levothyroxine or thyroid hormone and you may be getting too much and it may lower TSH. Talk to your Dr. about the best dosage. Good luck.

I have high TSH 5.28 and 2 weeks down to 3.4 without meds? Im also hypertensive and I have Brugada Syndrome. Why my TSH levels drop without meds?

Various possibilitie

There's always potential lab error. Morning determinations are generally most accurate. TSH is secreted episodically and can vary from one time to the next, Also, if you have had a recent bout of thyroiditis, your labs can vary over time. Did they draw any other thyroid tests like Free T4? Reheck you level in the future.
