Borderline abnormal: The free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 levels are normal. The TSH is borderline low. Typically the TSH is the most sensitive indicator of your thyroid level, and when low suggests that your thyroid level may be high (overactive). Currently you do not have enough of an abnormality to treat. The colloid cysts are usually of no significance. You should simply repeat the thyroid levels in 1 month. ...Read more

Do doctors still add on two weeks from first ultrasound if not going by LMP?

Do doctors still add on two weeks from first ultrasound if not going by LMP?

Not really.: Dating the pregnancy is done my last period date either real or assigned. Ultrasound dating is the same, and gives an Expected Date based on measurements. Its all the same LMP dating. We do not get into conception dating since this is even more "imaginary." Your OB should be able to confirm your LMP dating or discard it based on early Ultrasound findings. Be careful about late Ultrasound re-dating ...Read more
