Autoimmune disorders: like Rheumatoid Arthritis, diabetes & thyroiditis have an ^ed incidence in children with Down Syndrome (DS). A normal Free T4 & ^ed Ultrasensitive TSH indicates sub-clinical HYPOthyroidism that can become clinical. Macrocytosis, large RBC's, in infants with DS remains lifelong in 2/3rds. It can be associated with anemia from low Vitamin B12 & Folate (folic acid) or iron levels, hypothyroidism or leukemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal lab results, hyper thyroid symptoms. (tachycardia/insomnia) is Synthroid (thyroxine) or armour preferred? Possible adrenal issue?
Not for hyper: Adding thyroid hormone replacement to a hyperthyroid gland will exacerbate the problem. If there is underlying adrenal insufficiency, adrenal crisis is more likely to occur in someone with hyperthyroidism. Highly recommend endocrine evaluation if you have these issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hypothyroidism: Imagine it this way. Tsh is a measure of how much your body is 'calling out' for thyroid hormone. If low, your body is saying it has more than enough circulating thyroid hormone (though there are some exceptions to this) a high TSH can be thought of as your body asking for more thyroid. The higher the tsh, the more your body may be in need of thyroid hormone. (there are exceptions). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Levothyroxine.: Levothyroxine, generic form of synthroid, has many advantages over armour thyroid. The armour product has significant batch to batch variation and has T3 (liothyronine) in it. Since the T3 (liothyronine) portion of armour has a very quick onset and short duration, it can wreak havoc with the ability to effectively treat hypothyroidism. Until there is a long-acting form of T3 (liothyronine) available, stick to levothyroxine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does TSH 4, 83 mean hypothirodism ( underactive thyroid) and ft4 - is 9 ( does it also mean underactive thyiroid) ?
It depends/can mean,: This can mean under active thyroid depending on the ranges and whether or not there're symptoms of hypothyroidism, like fatigue, sensitivity to cold, and thinning of hair. The TSH is high normal to high at 4.83 if the upper limit is 5.0 or 3.0 respectively, while the free T4 is low normal if the units of measurement are pool/l. You've already got hypothyroidism so this would help reinforce it. ...Read more

Hypothyroidism...: Hypothyroidism means that there is an under active thyroid gland. The treatment is to replace the thyroid hormone. Blood tests will be done about every 4-6 weeks so the dose of thyroid hormone can be adjusted until the right dose is reached. Once that happens, the blood tests will be done less frequently. ...Read more
Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?
You do have it: Elevated tpo antibodies confirms you have autoimmune thyroiditis. This is often triggered by environmental toxins ;/or infections. You will likely benefit from adding liothyronine to your regimen ; treating adrenal problems with cordyceps, rhodiola etc. I advise consulting with a holistic doc.

TSH=0.04(0.4-4.5mIU/L)FreeT4=1.5(0.8-1.8ng/dL)FreeT3=2.5(2.3-4.2pg/mL). Have Hashimotos disease, on 112mcg Synthroid. why is tsh so low FT3/FT4 normal?
Any symptoms?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, just one parameter, in this case TSH, slightly out of whack is not a cause for alarm. You may watch and wait. If your clinical situation changes it may warrant repeating the tests. Wish you good health! ...Read more
