Elevated TSH with nl: When ft4 is normal and TSH elevation may indicate subclinical hypothyroidism or acute illness like surgery and pregnancy or any condition that increases thyroid binding hormones. In those cases thyroid replacement are not indicated and may lead to hyperthyroidism which could show suppressed TSH in 8 to 12 weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Most old reference ranges allow TSH upper limits up to 5.0. neew guidelines say thee upper limit should be no higher than 2.5. o by the new norms your TSH level would be considered abnormal , and medication adjustment may be needed. i personally use the old norms still, so i would not change anything at this point. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I starded to take thyroxine few weeks ago, i m at 50 by day but see no benefit. Tsh was 3.2 before beginning, can I slowly stop thyroxine ?
Discuss this with ur: Dr. U usually don't expect any significant body function change with (low) dose thyroid replacement in few weeks.It may take 2-3 months to notice a difference in ur energy/metabolism. If u r expecting ur libido to improve with thyroid hormone therapy, don't count on it. The testosterone meds ur taking should do it.

Depends: Hi. Those labs could reflect transitioning phases of a subacute thyroiditis from hyper- to hypothyroidism. You could also see those labs if you are taking Cytomel (T3, liothyronine); I see that you are. The most likely in your case is that your T3 is suppressing your TSH, and that drops endogenous T4 production by withdrawing endogenous stimulation to your thyroid gland. Why are you on T3? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I ve stopped to take thyroxine coz it was unecessary for me (tsh 3.2 at beginning). Does my TSH will raise up and slowly decrease or stay stable ?
Tsh 3.2 when started thyroxine. After 40 days on, i want to stop thyroxine till levels become abnormal. Do i feel very bad and how long if i stop T4 ?
Probably not: If TSH was 3.2 before your started taking thyroxine, with a normal t4, most likely you will not feel bad if you stop treatment. Talk to your doctor and explain why you want to try to stop medication. It may be a good idea to check levels 4-6 weeks after you stop treatment, to make sure levels are normal. ...Read more
Female.46 years.total thyroidtamy 6year ago.using thyroxine sodium 100mg 2 tabs per day. stopped that a month ago and TSH tested 4.60. what is then?
If you really had: a total thyroidectomy, you need thyroid replacement life long, however, 200 MICRO grams a day would be a relatively high dose. If your TSH is 4.6 after no replacement, your surgeon left in some thyroid tissue, but you still need BRAND NAME thyroxine replacement at an appropriate dose to keep your levels normal. ...Read more
