Thyroid replacement: 25 mcg is a very low dose. It appears that such a low dose did not really affect your TSH. 4.67 to 2.61 could be just random lab variation. Your baseline TSH of 4.67 is very close to normal. If the goal is to lower TSH, you may need a higher dose, but talk to your doctor. ...Read more

On75mcg synthroid.Y TSH levels of 4.57 (fT41.2) after a 3-4 wk chemical pregnancy hv reduced to 0.25 wit free T4 1.8.Did test 8 days after miscarryin?
Hypothyroid.: If I read your statement correctly, and I'm not sure I do, you are still hypothyroid and need to stay on the higher dose. Your numbers are somewhat confusing, but with your TSH still elevated at 4.57 on 75 mcg of Synthyroid you are not corrected and should not go down despite whatever the free T4 level is. In fact if you were my patient I would have increased your dose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Some doctors consider 2 to be getting high. But really it is the balance of T3 to reverse T3 that matters. T4 is converted to both T3 and rt3, and T3 is like the gas while rt3 is like the brakes. Tsh does not reflect this balance and cannot be used in isolation to uncover thyroid problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My TSH levels are 0.344. What does this mean and are there any symptoms associated with these levels?
1 of 3 things: Hi. If your TSH is 0.344, which is just slightly below the normal range, it could be: 1) normal, no thyroid disease (the "normal range EXCLUDES 5% of normal values), 2) mildly "hot" (autonomously hyperfunctioning) nodule(s), or 3) your doctor checked it while it was heading down. Recheck in 6 weeks: Stable at 0.3 or now normal; just follow. Further down, hyperthyroid. Check free T4 & T3. Thy scan ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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: 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. ...Read more
