T3 (liothyronine) is 600 , T4 is 24 , TSH is 0.014 cause hyperthroid.How to treat them operation or medicine?
Low TSH hyperthyroid: The low TSH did not cause hyperthyroidism, but is evidence of hyperthyroidism. In consultation with your doctor, the cost for the hyperthyroidism should be determined. That will help delineate which type of treatment is necessary. In very rare cases hyperthyroidism could be evidence of thyroid cancer, and obviously surgery would be warranted. Most other cases are amenable to medical treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which is more accurate in assessment of hypothyroidism ? Free T3 (liothyronine) T4 or the total T3 (liothyronine) t4
My Thyroid Peroxidase antibody is <1 IU/ML, tsh is 0.53 ulU/mL, T3 is 116 ng/dL, reverse T3 is 18ng/dL, T4 is 1.4 ng/dL. Does this indicate graves ?
Tsh is .77, T3 is 112, T3 uptake 29, T4 free 1.1, T4 total 8.5 and free T4 2.5. On 100mcg of synthroid (thyroxine). Nodules and goiter, still feeling bad, why?
Felling bad: Hi. There is a tendency among patients to blame every ailment on the poor little thyroid. Your thyroid labs are a little inconsistent - you say free T4 is both 1.1 and 2.5; did you mean one is a free thyroxine index? If indicated, has your nodule been needle biopsied? Otherwise, there are a bazillion things that can make you feel bad with normal thyroid function. ...Read more

Yes, but des. has T3 (liothyronine): T4 is the same exact chemical whether it is from dessicated or synthetic thyroid. However, dessicated thyroid also has the T3 (liothyronine) form of thyroid, which is available in synthetic form but not found in pills with t4.

No: Make sure you are not taking the med with calcium, iron or a multivitamin.

Eventually your dose should not change anymore. ...Read more

Check Iodine levels: Your TSH is elevated and the FT4 is in the lower quartile of normal values. Chronic fatigue syndrome could be due to frank hypothyroidism and Iodine deficiency or Hashimoto`s. I would like to see the levels of FT3 and a 24 hours urine collection for Iodine and Fluoride. I would treat you with Iodine if it is low in the urine collection and with Thyroid medications if Iodine is normal in urine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If my TSH (ultra sensitive) is 5.37, T3 (liothyronine) is 94.23, and T4 is 8.70, do I need to take a free T3 (liothyronine) and T4 test?
Thyroid Tests: Tsh is slightly elevated. I don't know which units of measure the thyroid hormones were tested. Generally, a total T4 isn't as helpful as free t4. A T3 (liothyronine) isn't something we routinely measure unless a patient is hyperthyroid. Are there any antithyroid antibodies? Hard to comment further without more info. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Tsh 3rd generation blood test level is 3.442. T3 (liothyronine) total is 87. T4 total is 8.7. Free T4 is 1.01. Is this normal or do I have a thyroid problem? I'm ttc
Normal: Your thyroid function tests are in the normal range. See this site for more details. http://www.endocrine.niddk.nih.gov/pubs/thyroidtests/. ...Read more
Yes: The total t3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are the "active forms" of t3 (liothyronine) and t4. These hormones are protein-bound. So, for example, if you have high protein levels, your total t3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels may come out normal when your free t3 (liothyronine) and T4 (looking at just the unbound levels) are actually low. To account for abnormal protein levels, we usually check the free levels for accuracy. ...Read more
