Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (Definition)

A TSH test measures the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in your blood. TSH is produced by the pituitary gland and tells the thyroid gland to make and release the hormones thyroxine ...Read more

My pth:85.4pg/ml tsh:0.57uU/ml calcium 10.46 mg/dl Vit D 27.4 ng/ml. Is it normal? If no what can I make?

My pth:85.4pg/ml tsh:0.57uU/ml calcium 10.46 mg/dl Vit D 27.4 ng/ml. Is it normal? If no what can I make?

Endocrinologist: You may have a parathyroid tumor with mild elevation of your serum calcium. These mild cases are often just watched and closely monitored by an endocrinologist who is better qualified to answer your question. If necessary he/she will refer you to a surgeon who is skilled in parathyroid surgery. ...Read more

I have 210 pth 10.6 calcium. .. 3 mos ago calcium was 11.2-and TSH 3.511 - since I have taken 25 mcg levothyroxine. Is it possible these tests r off?

I have 210 pth 10.6 calcium. .. 3 mos ago calcium was 11.2-and TSH 3.511 - since I have taken 25 mcg levothyroxine. Is it possible these tests r off?

Two different issues: The levothyroxine is for thyroid hormone replacement. It will not affect your PTH and calcium levels which are regulated by the parathyroid gland. The levels that get my attention are the elevated calcium and very elevated PTH level. This needs further evaluation. ...Read more

Calcium 2.38mmol/l, TSH 13.5mu/l, pth 4.6 pmol/l. I have hashimotos and 2 thyroid nodules less than 1cm. What does this mean?

Calcium 2.38mmol/l, TSH 13.5mu/l, pth 4.6 pmol/l. I have hashimotos and 2 thyroid nodules less than 1cm. What does this mean?

Various: You have various problems. Your thyroid level is low and needs to be treated with brand name T4 replacement. The nodules depend upon what they look like on ultrasound and other thyroid blood tests. May beed biopsy. Calcium is normal. Don't know the normals for PTH in pmol/l-also varies with type of PTH assay. Talk w/your doctor. ...Read more

I have blood test results that show low calcium levels, low PTH levels, and confirmed hypothyroidism due to high TSH. What does this mean?

Calcium PTH, Thyroid: Confirmed hypothyroidism s a clear message that the TSH is working hard to increase thyroid hormone but without success.
Treatment will have to be with thyroid hormone taken by mouth.
Unlikely, but the surgeon might want to remove your thyroid gland since it is not working properly. ...Read more

What causes high TSH 7.0 (although normal t3, (liothyronine)t4, pth) and low cortisol (1.0)? I'm being referred to an endo. I'm worried.

What causes high TSH 7.0 (although normal t3, (liothyronine)t4, pth) and low cortisol (1.0)? I'm being referred to an endo. I'm worried.

No worry: In early stages of hypothyroidism TSH is high when T3 (liothyronine) T4 may still be normal. Hypothyroidism is quite common and is easily treatable with an oral medication. However, you must follow your doctor's advice for additional tests and treatments. ...Read more

Blood calcium's been high & normal, Vitamin D low, PTH-40.TSH 1.2 & 2.5.My urine calcium 625. Doc thinks I tampered w/it. Far from true. What is going on?

Blood calcium's been high & normal, Vitamin D low, PTH-40.TSH 1.2 & 2.5.My urine calcium 625. Doc thinks I tampered w/it. Far from true. What is going on?

I suspect...: High urine calcium is from primary Hyperparathyroidism. I don't know your calcium but your PTH should be lower than 40 if your calcium is high. I would consider an evaluation by an endocrinologist with Hyperparathyroidism experience. ...Read more

Thyroid cancer patient, my thy numbers 2 years after total thyroidectomy: tsh= 0.32, tg ab= 23, tg=0.2, pth= 68, vitamin d= 12. Number meanings?

Thyroid cancer patient, my thy numbers 2 years after total thyroidectomy: tsh= 0.32, tg ab= 23, tg=0.2, pth= 68, vitamin d= 12. Number meanings?

See a Specialist: Tg ab and tg are a marker for remaining thyroid tissue (and presumably thyroid cancer), TSH is the hormone that stimulates thyroid tissue to grow and produce thyroid hormone, PTH is the hormone that controls your calcium metabolism. You should discuss your lab interpretations with a specialist, especially given your history of thyroid cancer. ...Read more

I have been having extreme fatigue, dry skin and muscle and joint pain. I had some labs done and my calcium was 10.6, TSH 8.54 FT$. 99, and PTH was 19?

I have been having extreme fatigue, dry skin and muscle and joint pain. I had some labs done and my calcium was 10.6, TSH 8.54 FT$. 99, and PTH was 19?

Tests Normal?: 53 F Iowa gives lab tests but no normal values for the lab tests. Never send lab tests to us without sending normal values from the lab that did them. This is because most analyes do not have universal reference standard and thus different labs may have different normal values and ranges. Also if we know why labs were being done it helps interpret test results. So send medical Hx as well. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism & pituitary micro adenoma. Can taking Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) 4 1.5 months increase above normal the levels of tsh, prolactin, pth, & tg?

Pituitary Adenoma: The hormone issues you describe are more commonly related to your pituitary adenoma rather that your bcp. Ask your endocrinologist... They can give definitive answers. ...Read more

Hx of kid stones, high protein dt, calcium high in 24 hr urine, serum calc 10.3 at highest. Vit d low norm intact pth 41. Nodules in wrist w pain.? Asked this before but put TSH instead of pth!

Primary hyperpara: A PTH of 41 with a concurrently high calcium of 10.3 is not normal. Pth and calcium level correlate (inversely) very closely with each other. If ur calcium is high at 10.3, there shouldn't be any PTH around & the level should drop to 5 or 10 but not 41. I would have a frank discussion with ur doctor about possibility of primary hyperparathyroidism (high calcium, kidney stone, high urine calcium). ...Read more

Norm. Tsh, pth 103, tpo ab 839, calcium 383, abnormal thyroid/para-heterogeneous parenchymal echotexture-thyroid, no nodule, ill defined hypoecoic lesion posterior to rt thyroid lobe, ill def para nodule?

Clarify: Hi. Your PTH is high and MEN-1 in the family. That calcium makes no sense unless it's a 24-hour urine calcium, in which case it's high. What's your serum calcium?
Your thyroid autoantibodies are high, and your thyroid function is normal. MEN-1 is not assoc. With autoimmune thyroid disease, so that looks like maybe an unrelated finding. Most MEN-1 patients get primary hyperparathyroidism before 57 ...Read more
