Is not normal. One presumes that T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are elevated (but lab scales vary). This is generally treated as elevated uncontrolled heart rate is dangerous.

How can you be negative for anti-TPO antibodies if they are detected, even if they are in the normal range? Does anyone have a value of 0 for these?
Lab practice: This is an arcane subject in clinical pathology. Antibodies are detected based on activities, not the specific identification of molecules. A lab sets a decision level at which an assay is reported as likely to indicate disease, with the understanding that what is really being measured is the ability of all the proteins totaled to bind to the test antigen. ...Read more
I got elevated TSH after mycoplasma pneunomia. The values fluctuate up and down (4-7) anti-TPO negative. Why?
Mild abnormality: A TSH of between 4 and 7 means that your thyroid function may be slightly low. You may not have any symptoms related to this. Despite the negative tpo antibody, the most common cause is still autoimmune thyroid disease. You should continue to have your level checked. If the TSH goes above 12, it likely will be time to start thyroid hormone. With symptoms, one would start treatment earlier. ...Read more

Had blood test a year ago for hyperthyroid, negative according to doc. But I have many of the syntoms. Could test have been wrong a year ago?
YES: Any lab test can be wrong for a variety of reasons- lab error or even the samples getting mixed up. Whenever I get a lab result that is unexpected I repeat it and it is not unusual for the result to be quite different. In this case please ask your doc to check free t3, (liothyronine) free t4, TSH and anti-thyroid antibodies for a thorough analysis. ...Read more

Missed 3 periods, negatives pregnancy test. Hyperthyroidism not currently on medications. Can hyperthyroidism cause a false negative, or stop ovulation?
Hyperthyroidism. ..: & hypothhyroidism, for that matter, can certainly affect ovulation. The thyroid really needs to function normally for healthy pregnancy & baby to result.

I performed two pregnancy test. Results were negative. But I still didn't get menses. Last mense date was 2nd feb. I have hyperthyroidism. Reason for delay?
May be thyroid: Hyperthyroidism can definitely affect fertility, ovulation, and menses frequency, duration, and flow. But if you've had the hyperthyroidism since February, and still aren't having periods, it may be time to look a little deeper. I would hope that your hyperthyroidism would have been treated and showing some response to treatment in 5 months. If so, the periods should become more regular soon. ...Read more

It often depends on when you take your medicine. I think it best to take thyroid medicine at bedtime. Give it a bit of time and your levels should be stable. Yes, they could be stable and high or stable and low.
Once you have settled on that please see your doctor. ...Read more
Can I have hyperthyroidism even if tests have been negative? Symptoms of rapid weight loss, hair loss, fatigue and dry circular skin patches.
Unlkikely!: If your TSH is normal, and your free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are normal, it would be quite (no extremely) unlikely that you are hyperthyroid. Illness itself can cause hair and weight loss. I suspect you need an alternate diagnosis. Since I do not know your age, it is hard to make suggestive diagnoses. ...Read more
Is it necessary to treat mild subclinical hyperthyroid (negative antibody, normal t3/t4 TSH 0.461) before having a lobectomy for follicular nodule?
Normal: A TSH of 0.46 is normal is most labs. It appears that you are going to surgery for a "follicular nodule". You should be aware that there is a newer pathology test (afirma by veracyte) that helps to differentiate which patients with follicular neoplasms need to go to surgery vs observation. You might want to consider this before surgery. ...Read more

Diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Unknown cause. Tsh in range. Normal t3 high ft4. Negative antibodies for graves and Hashi. Thyroid ultrasound normal. Low b12 lower range vit D. Normal prolactin level. Endo believes it’s pituitary?
Positive anti-TPO or: Anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies means antibodies are present which act against thyroid cells leading to hypothyroidism. Mayo clinic cites that values >9.0 iu/ml as generally associated with autoimmune thyroiditis, but elevations are also seen in other autoimmune diseases. Other labs may differ so it is important to speak with physician regarding lab result interpretation. ...Read more
These antibodies indicate auto-immune thyroid disease, however it can be easily overcome with thyroid medication which is far safer than trying to lower the antibody titer. See this site for more info.
