What does a low TSH level mean?

What does a low TSH level mean?

Need to look at T3 (liothyronine): And free t4. Low tsh, depending on the sensitivity of the assay, indicates thyroid hyper-function.

Could rhodiola cause low TSH levels?

Could rhodiola cause low TSH levels?

Unlikely but...: Rhodiola is known to improve thyroid function and thus might be expected to reduce TSH levels somewhat (though more research on this is needed). However, a low TSH tends to be a sign of hyperthyroidism and, as far as i know, rhodiola is not known to stimulate the thyroid to the point of hyperthyroidism. ...Read more

Due to thyca can you have low TSH and high tg? Or if tg increases does the tsh?

Due to thyca can you have low TSH and high tg? Or if tg increases does the tsh?

Low TSH unlikely: Thyroid cancer usually does not cause a low TSH (unless you are taking thyroid hormone). Most thyroid cancers do not function as well as normal thyroid tissue. Elevated thyroglobulin is a nonspecific finding, seen in most disorders of the thyroid. It can serve as a tumor marker for recurrent thyroid cancer as long as the thyroid has been completely removed. High tg has nothing to do with tsh. ...Read more

Having heel pain since one year,low TSH?

Having heel pain since one year,low TSH?

Unrelated: Heel pain is not a symptom of thyroid disease. When you say low TSH, do you mean in the range of 0.1-0.4 or less than 0.1? A slightly low TSH of 0.1 to 0.4 is usually a benign normal variation whereas a TSH of less than 0.1 could be a sign of an overactive thyroid which would require further testing and possibly treatment. ...Read more

What does it mean when you have a low TSH but you also have a low t4?

Thyroid labs: Hi. See an endocrinologist. Make sure it's a free T4 (not a TOTAL T4). If you have low TSH and a low free T4, that's compatible with pituitary disease causing hypothyroidism (so called "secondary hypothyroidism"). IF you have that (not saying you do), you need to be checked for pituitary problems and other pituitary deficiencies (adrenal, most promptly); If u have secondary hypothy, CHECK ADRENALS ...Read more
