How long does l-thyroxin (one 0.75 microgram pill per day) need to lower TSH level? My cd3 bloodwork result for TSH is 6.17 (norm: 0.3-3.5)

Mildly low: Your TSH is only mildly elevated. Your thyroid level (free t4) is likely to still be in the normal range. If you recently gave birth, this could be a temporary problem (post partum thyroiditis), and may not require treatment. Taking 0.75 mg of thyroxine should correct the level within a few weeks (though you may not feel any different). ...Read more

What should I do to decrease my weight? i am detected with mild hypothyroidism. TSH level 4.8 (lab normal level 0.2-4.2). I am taking 12.5mg thyronorm

What should I do to decrease my weight? i am detected with mild hypothyroidism. TSH level 4.8 (lab normal level 0.2-4.2). I am taking 12.5mg thyronorm

Mild hypothyroidism: Your TSH was mildly high. I suspect your free T4 level is in the normal range. It is possible that even mild hypothyroidism could contribute to difficulty losing weight. You are on a very small dose of thyroid and will likely require a higher dose to correct the level. You need to decrease calories in your diet by decreasing starches, and increase exercise, in order to effectively lose weight. ...Read more

Thyroid blood test: normal tsh, and normal t 4, slightly lower free t3 (liothyronine). What is a normal TSH level?

Thyroid blood test: normal tsh, and normal t 4, slightly lower free t3 (liothyronine). What is a normal TSH level?

0.4-4.5: In most labs, the normal TSH ranges between 0.4 and 4.5. Most people have TSH levels under 2.5. One can still be normal with higher TSH levels, but if you have hypothyroid symptoms, a mildly high TSH could be a sign of developing hypothyroidism. Free T3 (liothyronine) levels are not accurate in many labs, so a slightly low level may be meaningless. You should see an endocrinologist if you have symptoms. ...Read more

I have a TSH level of 0.06. I take eltroxin 100mcg. Anything lower I get hives. Sore throat and puffiness when clearing. Thyroid small tho and gerd.  ?

Low TSH: The TSH is low. That would imply that your FT4 is high (needs to be measured), which would imply that your levothyroxine dose is too high, or your thyroid is producing some hormone on top of what you are taking in the pill. You and your doctor (perhaps with help of an Endocrinologist) need to figure this out. Long term, it is not healthy to be this way. Bone loss, stress on the heart. ...Read more
