Elevated Tsh Levels In Newborn
Higher than adults.: Tsh concentrations in children are normally higher than in adults. The nacb (national academy of clinical biochemistry) set age-related reference limits at about 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml in normal-term infants at birth, 0.6–10 µiu/ml at 10 weeks old, 0.4–7.0 µiu/ml at 14 months and gradually dropping to adult levels, or 0.4–4.0 µiu/ml. So 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml is the range for newborns. ...Read more

My new born 1mth girl child is having stiffness in the limbs. My doc has suggested blood test for calcium, phosphorus and tsh. Plz suggest.
My TSH level is 15.6 and two months ago it was normal. It takes months to normalize but why has it elevated so quickly and what should be done?

Is it true that elevated prolactin will produce a false tsh

Is the level of TSH of 4 is elevated ? With normal totalt3 .And T4 is it an indication of any type of hypothyroidism ?
Maybe: The TSH level of 4 may be borderline elevated depending on the lab performing the test. If thyroid levels are normal the TSH level may be a warning that the thyroid may be failing. Repeat levels over time are needed to answer the question. ...Read more
What would cause my LH and FSH levels to be elevated. LH is 26.8 and FSH is 11.4. TSH, insulin and metabolic panel came back normal.
May be normal : Hello Amanda . FSH and LH levels vary during the phases of men'straul cycle . These values are still within normal range expected during different phases of the cycle . For example normal LH values for your age are : 1-18 mIU/dL in the first half of cycle . 20-105 mIU/dL in the mid cycle and 0.4 -20 mIU/ml in the second half . ...Read more
What does it mean if a patient has a goiter associated with high plasma levels of both trh and tsh. Heart rate is elevated?
Been having elevated BP since total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago. Tsh was 17 and on Synthroid (thyroxine) 125. Will BP fluctuate until hormone levels stable?
My TSH levels are 4.57; Free T4 =1.2; T3 (liothyronine)=103. Are my Free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels normal? If they are normal why is my TSH elevated?
Slightly low: I see that you are on thyroid hormone. The TSH will be the best indicator of whether you need more or less medication. The ideal TSH is around 1-2, so currently you could use a slightly higher dose. The "normal range" applies to a population of people. Your individual normal range is much more narrow. If your pituitary wants your free T4 to be 1.3 or 1.4, it will put out TSH to try to do so. ...Read more
MCH slightly elevated at 34 (MCV) normal but on high side is it any relation to low t3 (liothyronine) levels 46 ? TSH and T4 also low laying but normal range.
I hav slightly elevatd TSH of 6.24(normal range considering 0.35-5.5 uiu/ml) & normal T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels. I delivered my 1st baby about 7 month back.
C.L.I.A method. T3-83ng/dl,T4-8.3ug/dl,TSH-8.07uIU/ml. T3&T4 are normal but TSH level elevated.is it thyroid? Shall i take medicine or natural diet?
Elevated TSH: The elevated TSH suggests your thyroid is in the process of failing, probably from Hashimotos thyroiditis, which is autoimmune. If you feel well, you need not take anything now, but your thyroid will likely fail, and you will need to take levothyroxine. This could happen in 3 months or could take years. Many doctors would start meds now. Diet/herbs/iodine/vitamins will not help. ...Read more
I started taking Synthroid (thyroxine) at 35 weeks pregnant because i developed slightly elevated TSH levels; when can I stop taking Synthroid (thyroxine) after giving birth?
My PCP wants me to start taking Synthroid 25 mcg to treat a mildly elevated TSH with normal T4. I have No symptoms. I'm 5'9" 142 lbs, with normal cholesterol levels. I have occasional palpitations with normal EKG's. Since December 2014 until November 2015
Subclinical thyroid: Sub-clinical hypothyroidism is a grey area..Some start low dose synthroid (thyroxine) . It may have beneficial effects on lipids and cardiac function. May consider repeating TSH in 6 weeks and if again low then starting, check thyroid antibodies. TSH may wax and wane between abn and normal over months . f/u w/doc http://www.aafp.org/afp/1998/0215/p776.html ...Read more

TSH level: 0, T3/T4 normal, cortisol thru the roof, lymphocytes elevated, BP: 160/100 and waking @ 3am. MD saying it's hypothyroid. I disagree. Help?
Cushing syndrome: Cortisol thru the roof is Cushing syndrome until ruled out. Our job is to figure out why this is happening. Taking steroids can do this but shouldn't affect thyroid. I'd be more concerned about pituitary adenoma which can cause both Cushing AND central hypothyroidism (usually low TSH means hyperthyroidism) but in case of space occupying lesion in pituitary, it may put out ACTH in favor of TSH. ...Read more
Various meds: Can do this. The most common are thyroid hormone (either T4 and/or t3), lithium, amiodarone, dopamine, levodopa, bromocriptine, glucocorticoids (>0.5 mg/day dexamethasone, 100 mg/day hydrocortisone), octreotide, amphetamines, Metoclopramide >1 mg/kg, iodinated contrast media. ...Read more
A little: It depends on the lab but that is just a bit elevated. Generally a lab test called free T4 is done when this borderline. If the free t 4 is low that would confirm that you are hypothyroid. When the numbers are borderline often down the road they will become frankly abnormal. If there are symptoms such as fatigue and weight gain then i would be more inclined to treat sooner then later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
