TSH of 6.50 is...: A TSH level of 6.50 is too high, but there is no clear question being submitted here. If one's TSH was even higher in the past, then this would be an improvement. If one's TSH was lower in the past, then this would be a worsening. One's primary care doctor or one's endocrinologist can evaluate... and help answer the patient's true question, whatever that question might be. ...Read more

61 yr. Female: tsh/5.610 - free T4 1.01 - free T3 (liothyronine) 2.6 - rt3 13.8 - tgb 25 - tpo 355. Fatigue, dizzy after bending over, am headaches, am temp. -97?
Likely hypothyroid,,: With a TSH likely high and a low ft4, this is likely hypothyroidism. Your temperature is low also. Fatigue and dizziness are symptoms at least in line with hypothyroidism. A positive tpo test would indicate possible hashimoto's thyroiditis or grave's disease as these antibodies are present in these conditions. Since you also have symptoms, it would be wise to see your doctor to discuss therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1
e.R. Said hepatitis?
Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

4-21-14 Thyroidectomy r/t thyroiditis, goiter. On Synthroid (thyroxine) 137 mcg- hypo s/s returning have felt great for months. Would adding Cytomel help?
Not specific: The signs & symptoms of hypothyroidism are not specific for hypothyroidism (not a single one). Recheck your thyroid labs. If they're normal, your symptoms are due to something else. Having said that, I'm happy to do a trial of Cytomel with the Synthroid (thyroxine) in patients who want to try as long as I don't make them hyperthyroid. Some people report feeling better with comparable labs taking a little T3. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Check with Dr.: Your tpo antibody is high, and more than a third of the women who test positive for thyroid peroxidase (tpo) antibodies while pregnant go on to develop abnormal thyroid hormone levels within two years, more followup needs to be done with these women. Your body maybe attacking your thyroid gland. This is not an emergency please do not panic and talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Probably more: This low an Albumin with what i will assume at your age is a polyclonal gammopathy makes me concerned about serious systemic disease or severe liver disease. Your obesity may have given you non-alcoholic steatohepatitis or you may have something else badly wrong. If your personal physician is not able to diagnose / explain, please ask for a consultation. ...Read more

Would be rare: It could make sense if your TSH was elevated due to pituitary or hypothalamic tumor. This is very unlikley. Would repeat labs. You need to include normal range as they vary from lab to lab. Looks like your ft4 and ft3 are both upper limit of normal. Usually would suppress tsh. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
You are not taking: Tsh is very sensitive to the compliance of you taking the thyroid medication. Usually, when we see a high TSH and a high t4, it means the patient took some extra thyroid meds recently. Your overall control is bad. Just take your thyroid medication regularly at the same dose and re-do the labs in a 6 weeks. Tsh level is really the long-term ft4 sensor! ...Read more
Tsh is 6.8 but before starting meds, I want to do a FT3/FT4 test. Can I take in the evening around 430-5pm or should this be taken in the a.m. too?

60yo, tested today: TSH (6.8 last month) went up to 10.51 and FT4 is 11.71. Why did it go up and can I wait 3 mnths to start any meds as I'm busy now?
Doesn't add up: Your TSH doesn't correlate with your FT4, Are you sure your Ft4 is 11.7? This is too high, look at the blood report one more time and let me know. Your TSH is high and if it's 10 and your Ft4 is within normal range (0.8-2.5) and you are symptom free then you have subclinical Hypothyrodism and it's time for treatment. Usually elevated TSH and Ft4 are lab error, or very rare medical conditions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I got my blood test back . It says my ft3 is 6.22 refrang 1.7-3.7
ft4 is 1.36 rang is 0.7 -1.48 , my TSH is 2.5528 refrang 0.35-4.98?
Thyroid: Numbers alone aren't enough to work with. Do you have hypothyroidism or thyroiditis, or post thyroidectomy or none of above. Based on ft3 and ft4, i would expect your TSH to be lower. It depends on your clinical picture, lots of variables influence these #s, incl. Meds, other disorders, hormones , etc.Do you take thyroid meds? ...Read more
My TSH reamains so low (0.02) after RAI (3 years ago) even if FT4 and FT3 are normal? Does this have anything to do with the rest of my symptoms.
See answer details.: Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is produced by the pituitary gland and stimulates the thyroid gland (in your neck) to produce the thyroid hormone thyroxine (t4) which is then converted into triodothyronine (t3) which is the active hormone that stimulates metabolism. Both T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are mostly bound to thyroid binding globulin, but free (unbound) amounts exist in your blood; these are ft3 and ft4. ...Read more
Thyroid: Hard to answer this without numbers. Equally important, if not more so, are you having symptoms related to an over-active thyroid gland. Can you forward some numbers related to you concerns? ...Read more
Depends: Lab reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. That being said, these are normal for most labs if the units are mcU/mL for TSH and picomoles/L for free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine). If these are the correct units, and your physician isn't concerned, relax. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why does TSH 3.84mu/l (ft4 15pmol/l) leap to TSH 6.49 in 20dys? Tpo & tg are ok. My mr hypophysis scan from last year is ok. Do i go for another one?
Fluctuations: The most likely cause for slightly elevated TSH with normal ft4 is "subclinical hypothyroidism". The TSH is very sensitive to minimal ft4 variations and doe there are fluctuations. However this may represent a trend towards more significant hypothyroidism, so i would repeat the test (TSH) 2 months after the second one. Repeating the MRI is unnecessary. ...Read more
At risk: With elevated TSH you are at risk for developing hypothyroidism even though based on ft 4 results you are not hypothyroid now. Your doctor may wish to put you on thyroid medication to avoid you becoming hypothyroid. At a minimum, you should retest in about 6 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tsh: 0.013(0.27-4.7), ft4: 19.7(12-22), ft3: 5.2(3.1-6.8). Exercise intolerance, tired & breathlessness. To wait & recheck later or any advice?
hyperthyroidism: The low TSH indicates that your thyroid levels are high for you, despite the normal ft4 and ft3 levels. If you had no symptoms we would call this subclinical hyperthyroidism. If your doctor feels that your symptoms are related to your thyroid, treatment would be indicated. Overall, it is reasonable to wait 4-6 weeks and repeat the levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hypothyroidism and high prolactin latest results ft4 <5.2 (9.0-19) ft3 3.00 (2.6-6) TSH 0.03 (0.1-3.5) rt3 <40 (140-540) prolactin 2356 (<500)?
See a specialist.: Your profoundly elevated prolactin level needs to be evaluated, and your thyroid hormone levels are dangerously low. It appears there may be another problem with your pituitary gland, as it is not making TSH appropriately for the low free T4 and low normal free T3 (liothyronine) levels. I would strongly recommend you see an endocrinologist right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High FT4: "FT4" typically stands for Free T4, which has a "normal" range of 0.7 - 1.6 (or a bit higher at some laboratories), so a level of 13.9 is high. TSH of 4.64 is high normal for most laboratories. This combination is unusual but may suggest thyroid hormone resistance. The first step would be to retest TSH, Free T4, and Free T3 to confirm. ...Read more
