How To Raise T3 Levels Naturally
T3-182dl for 60-200, T4-12.4dl for 4.5-12.0 and TSH-3.22ml for 0.30-5.5, Calcium-9.83dl for 8.8- 10.6.Calcium has raised a bit. What does this all mean?
Normal: Hi. That is all completely normal. It demonstrates why we only use a free T4 instead of a total T4. Your total T4 is slightly "elevated" because of a binding protein in your blood; your free T4 would be within normal limits, if it were checked. Not one single analyte in blood remains the same all the time. There is a RANGE of normal. Labs have variability too. Your labs are normal. Live healthily!
My TSH was 22.01 T3 (liothyronine) was 2.05 & T4. 93 on 5/24/13 he raised my dose from 75 to 88 I'm still really tired and foggy in the head my vision seems weird?
Need more med: The TSH of 22 is high and shows that you need more thyroid hormone. Going from 75 mcg to 88 will likely not be enough. You will more likely need a dose of 100-125. You should have a repeat level within 1 month, so that a change in dosage can be made.
T4 low end of range. T3 (liothyronine) slightly below optimum. Tsh raised now dropping. Tsh/ft3/ft4-:3.15/3.12/0.8.Now 2.23/2.91/0.86.Fatigue, cold, insomnia. Any concern?
Normal: All of these levels are normal. There will always be some fluctuation of blood tests done on different days. This is related to some variability in the test assays as well as some natural fluctuations in your thyroid levels. Your symptoms are nonspecific and can be due to hundreds of reasons. Eating well and exercise are always a positive thing to do for these symptoms.
Ultrasound showed lots of small cysts all over thyroid, T3 (liothyronine) and T4 raised. Right side is bulging (goitre) any ideas on cause or possible treatment?
52 years male, diabetic and hypertensive having sudden weight loss, trembles, sweating, tachycardia, (T3 (liothyronine) & T4 raised TSH dec) what is Diag & treatment?
Hyperthyroidism: Hi. If you're hyperthyroid, I have to assume you've seen a doctor who ordered the thyroid labs. If that doctor isn't comfortable treating you, get a referral to one who is. Treatment, if needed (one type is self limited and goes away on its own) would either be radioactive iodine or an antithyroid medication (usually methimazole). Your doc may treat you with a beta-blocker to slow down your heart.See 1 more doctor answer
Reason for high T3 (liothyronine)?: If you have hyperthyroidism from grave's disease there really isn't a natural way to bring thyroid hormone levels down. If you want to avoid medication, that will be difficult because it isn't safe to be hyperthyroid. Even if you had your thyroid surgically removed or ablated by radioactive iodine you would still need to take medicine to replace your thyroid hormone under those circumstances.
Pregnancy thyroid: T4 and t3 (liothyronine) are bound to blood proteins. The level of these proteins goes up in pregnancy, so the level of total T4 and t3 (liothyronine) goes up, but the level of "free" T4 t3 (liothyronine) stays normal. The normal range depends on the lab, and the units. I do not recognize "1.54". A normal total t3 (liothyronine) in non-pregnant is about 90-190 ng/dl. It is higher in pregnancy, and if there is suspicion of hyper then you need a free t3 (liothyronine).
Probably not: Too much. It's slightly higher than normal, but the test is not a part of the routine thyroid evaluation and has very few indications. A freet4 and a TSH are much more helpful. Talk w/your doctor.
Hyperactive Thyroid: It can mean hyperthyroid or TBG def. (thyroxine binding globulin).
Not likely: In itself, if the levels are not extremely low and associated with a high TSH it is unlikely.
If your lab: Is using ng/dl then yes all is well.
Find the cause: Find out why the level is high. Do you have graves disease, taking too much thyroid hormones...appropriate treatment depends on the cause but there are options.
Tsh: First trimester: 0.24 - 2.99 second trimester:. 46-2.95 third trimester:. 43 - 2.78.
My T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are normal, TSH is 7.76 inspire of taking thyronorm 50mg everyday, please advise?
Higher dose: Tsh is more sensitive than T3 (liothyronine) or T4 levels for identifying patients whose thyroid levels are abnormal for them. A high TSH means that your pituitary gland is trying to get your thyroid to make more thyroid hormone. Since your thyroid can't (or you wouldn't be on thyroid hormone), you probably need a stronger thyroid tablet. Talk to your doc to make sure you're getting the most from your pills.
