Normal tsh, high T4 and high t3 (liothyronine). What is it?

May be nothing: Thyroid hormone production and control are complex. If your T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are normal but your TSH is slightly high, it may be nothing at all. Talk with your doctor and ask about consulting with an endocrinologist if this worries you. It is unlikely this will affect your social life. ...Read more

What does it mean if I have high tsh, t3, (liothyronine) T4 levels?

What does it mean if I have high tsh, t3, (liothyronine) T4 levels?

HiTSH=hypo,hiT4 hype: Thyroid function is measured many ways. The TSH is your body's call for more hormone, so a high TSH suggests underactive thyroid, very low TSH overactive. The t4/t3 levels are measures of circulating hormone, so high T4 or T3 (liothyronine) suggest hyperthyroidism and vice versa. T4 levels can beaffected by hormones and so need to be interpreted carefully. For initial testing, the TSH alone best test. ...Read more

High TSH, normal T4 and High T3 (liothyronine). What does this mean?

F/u with your Dr: Asymptomatic patients with an elevated TSH, but normal thyroxine levels, are referred to as having Subacute or Subclinical hypothyroidism. There are varying recs as to whether they should be treated, especially if no symptoms.

High TSH (mine 9.58 & standard  is0.40-4.5), normal free t4(mine 0.9 & standard is0.8-1.8) or T3 (liothyronine) thyroid (mine2.8 & standard 2.3-4.2) can you help?

Any symptoms?: The elevated TSH indicates that your pituitary gland feels that your thyroid level is a little low (despite your thyroid levels being in the normal range for a population of people). This is subclinical hypothyroidism. If you have no symptoms, it is ok to recheck levels in a few months to see if they are better/worse. If you have symptoms of low thyroid, it would be reasonable to start thyroid. ...Read more

If my T3, (liothyronine)T4 is high along with high TSH, in this case, do i have hyperthyroid?

If my T3, (liothyronine)T4 is high along with high TSH, in this case, do i have hyperthyroid?

Unusual case: Hi. That is a VERY unusual lab picture, suggestive of either a TSH-secreting pituitary adenoma (you'd be hyperthyroid) or thyroid hormone resistance (thyroid hormone receptor defect...you wouldn't be hyperthyroid). To determine if you're hyperthyroid in this very rare case, you need to see an experienced endocrinologist. Good luck! ...Read more
