Is Tsh The Same As Pth
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?
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 symptoms of hypothyroidism, tsh has been 3.92, 3.21 and 1.03 respectively. Low vitamin d, calitirol 48.6, and pth of 91.6. What is going on?
Labs: Your thyroid test looks normal, but your parathyroid test looks high. I would see an endocrinologist to go over those lab values. ...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
Corrected calcium 2.13mmol/L (phosphate normal, vitamin D normal). PTH 65.2pg/ML. Is this something to worry about? TSH is high at 6.92 with TPO neg.
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.
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?
Too low LH and FSH, normal prolactin, PTH and estradiol, normal but in the low range TSH, T3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) T3 (liothyronine) free, T4 and T4 free. Why?

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?
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?
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?
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
Take more Synthroid (thyroxine): If you're following your tsh, I'm assuming that you have hypothyroidism on replacement therapy. The number is opposite: if you are not on enough synthroid, (thyroxine) the TSH is high. If you are on too much synthroid, (thyroxine) the TSH is low. Look at the normal range for tsh. If you feel sluggish, cold, fat, or constipated; you may need an increase in your dose (or you may need to start thyroid replacement!). ...Read more
Mildly high: A TSH of 4.84 means that your pituitary gland is not completely happy with your thyroid level, and is trying to get your thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone. Considering your history of RA, you may also have Hashimoto's thyroiditis, which can eventually cause your thyroid to fail. You should have a free T4 level, though it is likely to still be normal. Eventually you may need thyroid hormone ...Read more
TSH: Tsh decreases in response to thyroid activity. If you're exposed to foods which suppress your thyroid and then avoid them, your thyroid function could normalize -- making your TSH decrease too. Some potentially problematic foods for thyroid include any containing bromine or bromates -- these can be found in breads, pesticides on fruits, soft drinks, etc. Http://tinyurl.

Many: An increased TSH means you do not have enough thyroid hormone circulating & being used. This is hypothyroidism. Symptoms are many. Tiredness, depression, dry skin, constipation, edema of legs, weight gain, deepening of voice, change in texture of hair, menstrural irregularities, decreased stamina and many many more. If this is the case, see your pcp or endocrinologist & get examined and treated. ...Read more
Not due to this: Tsh level. A lab test result needs to be interpreted in the complete clinical context. You do not need medication for this TSH level but that does not mean that you may not need medication for other reasons. It is best to discuss such issues with your doctor. ...Read more
See below: 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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it is slightly below the normal limit and may indicate mild thyroid over activity. If you have any heart rhythm abnormality, then it may warrant action. ...Read more
