What is the risk of having severe cervical spinal stenosis myelopathy? There is almost no CSF around T3/T4&6 due to narrowing from the disks and steno

What is the risk of having severe cervical spinal stenosis myelopathy? There is almost no CSF around T3/T4&6 due to narrowing from the disks and steno

It depends: As another doctor pointed out, the "T" designation refers to the thoracic spine and you are indicating you have cervical canal stenosis. Therefore, I wonder if you really mean "C" when you indicate "T". Nonetheless, myelopathy is a clinical syndrome that is frequently due to spinal stenosis at whatever level, but the lack CSF around the spinal cord at a level does NOT necessarily imply myelopathy. ...Read more

High T4 and low T3 (liothyronine) after complete thyroidectomy. Currently take 200mcg of levethyroxine. Should i increase or cut my dose?

High T4 and low T3 (liothyronine) after complete thyroidectomy. Currently take 200mcg of levethyroxine. Should i increase or cut my dose?

Depends: Levothyroxine is t4. T4 is converted to t3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) the active thyroid hormone. Some patients have trouble converting T4 to t3 (liothyronine) and need t3 (liothyronine) replacement inaddition to T4 replacement. You should talk to your doctor about your levels. Depending on the reason for your thyroidectomy, like thyroid cancer, you may want to have higher T4 levels to suppress your tsh. ...Read more

I've been on levothyroxine for three weeks and almost feel like my symptoms are worse. Both my t4 and my t3 (liothyronine) are low, the most bothersome symptoms ach?

Dosage adjustment: Usually, most cases of hypothyroidism are treated with increasing doses of l-thyroxin until all levels of T3 (liothyronine). T4 and TSH are normalized. This is determined by routine blood testing including checking for anti- thyroid antibodies to rule out autoimmune ( Hashimoto's) thyroiditis. ...Read more

Tsh 0.06 , t3 (liothyronine) 1.9 , t4 12 What to do?

Need for evaluation: 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, your lab results suggest thyroid hyper-activity. It would be prudent to see an endocrinologist for a proper evaluation with respect to rest of the findings on your health examination. ...Read more

My T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are normal, TSH is 7.76 inspire of taking thyronorm 50mg everyday, please advise?

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. ...Read more

Too much med: Your thyroid levels are too high on this dosage of levothyroxine. You need a lower dose. I usually have patients go down in steps (i.e. 175 mcg, recheck level in 2 months, then decrease to 150 mcg if still high, etc) ...Read more
