How Does Gallbladder Affect Tsh Thyroid Hormones
Been taking synthroid (thyroxine) (125) for 6+ months and just discontinued. How long until TSH/thyroid hormones return to baseline levels?
You need synthroid (thyroxine): If you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and a physician has placed you on synthroid, (thyroxine) this is a lifelong replacement therapy. If the diagnosis was correct, your thyroid can no longer produce enough thyroid hormone and without the continuous thyroid replacement therapy (synthroid) you will eventually experience all the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism. Talk to your Dr. before stopping med ...Read more
A hormone (from greek ὁρμή, "impetus") is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism. Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more
Why do thyroid hormones keep changing?Now tgo antibodies are"too low to be detected", 4 months ago they were 130!anti tpo 40, TSH 0.99, ft3 2.64, ft4 1.41
Isn't the effect of thyroid hormones at pituitary level altered in patients without a thyroid under levothyroxine monotherapy? Therefore, TSH cannot always be considered an appropriate marker? Isn't free T4 & T3 a more approriate marker in levothyroxine-
No: If your body is not handling the levothyroxine well, your TSH level will be off and you will need to increase the dose. As long as your TSH is "normal", then it is accepting the levothyroxine as a hormone and is a good measuring parameter. Ft4 and ft3 varies throughout the day (especially if you are taking levothyroxine), thus they are not good tests to base your treatment on. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Am i a non responder to thyroid hormones? I take 100mcg of levothyroxine and 50mcg of cytomel (liothyronine) (t3) daily. My TSH is 8.53 and freet4 is low @ .55
Probably not: What was your TSH before you started on treatment? If it was 100 before you are doing much better. We usually use just levothyroxine to treat low thyroid hormone levels and not t3 (liothyronine) but t3 (liothyronine) treatment could be causing your free T4 to be too low. Poor absorption of thyroid from the gut is rare but do not take it with soy-containing food. Stopping t3 (liothyronine) and increasing leveothyroxine to 125 might help. ...Read more
What are factors that determine someone with hypothyroidism must be on synthroid (thyroxine) forever?i have it(just high TSH)other thyroid hormones're normal
Failing thyroid: Most likely you have Hashimotos thyroiditis, which is gradually "eating away" at your thyroid. Your doctor could check TPO antibodies. Your gland may not be totally dead now, but it likely will be eventually, but total hypothyroidism and a dead gland could be in 3 months or 10 years. Probably best to take your synthroid (thyroxine) to avoid the symptoms of hypothyroidism, but talk to your doc. ...Read more
I am having extreme fatigue and i did blood test and my TSH level was high (8.6) ! but thyroid hormones are normal (t3 (liothyronine) T4 ) ! what is causing fatigue?
Further testing: The fatigue may be still be related to the thyroid. You should have a full thyroid panel which would include total and free T4 and t3, (liothyronine) rt3 and fti as well as thyroid autoantibodies. There can be defects in conversion from inactive to active hormone or an autoimmune process may be active. If that is the case treatment may include some hormone replacement but also addressing the immune system. ...Read more
