I've allergy appear when not sleaping early, I did tsh analysis was slightly high, two other times was in range and t3, t4 with in range, what my ttt?
? reverse T3: Slightly elevated TSH in the presence of normal T3 and T4 suggests a higher than average level of reverse t3. T3 is what's actually used by cells for metabolic activity; it's produced from T4 passing thru the liver. The average person makes only about 10% reverse T3, but if you make more than than you'll have subclinical hypthyroidism with normal T4 and T3 values and slightly elevated TSD. ...Read more

23 yr-old, since puberty had facial "bloating" and other symptoms suggestive of thyroid or cortisol issues, but hasn't found effective treatment....?
Subclinical Hypothyroididsm: In a difficult case like yours I take into consideration ratio of T4 to TSH. If the ratio is less than 2.5 I have found out that patients have hypothyroidism. I would take small dose of synthyroid like 0.25mg for a month and recheck T4and TSH then decide whether to continue or add some more. This will depend on how you tolerate it and what's your T4 and TSH. Obviously you have compound problem in situation like this hypothyroidism needs to be corrected first. Let me know how you do. ...Read more
67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?
There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed.
We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's.
Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.
Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more
My ths levels are low (0.05) and my T3 (liothyronine) is 6.5 all so my T4 is 20.2, what medicine do I need to take?
I am 24 years old and my TSH3-UL is 10.459, while T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are normal as i am taking medicines. what should be my next step? Please help
Not the best: All of the major professional societies for thyroid specialists, the endocrine society, the american thyroid association, and the american association of clinical endocrinologists have issued formal statements indicating that levothyroxine is the best choice for most patients. Both armour and thyrolar (thyroxine and liothyronine) provide too much T3 relative to t4, making it very difficult to keep tsh, free T4 & T3 normal. ...Read more
Hi, what is TSH and if T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are normal but TSH is higher what is its effect? Any recommendations for medicine.
Low Thyroid :
Elevated tsh, even in the presence of normal T3 (liothyronine) and T4 suggests current or impending thyroid insufficiency. You should consult your doctor for thyroid replacement therapy.

Hypothyroid: Relax! Just make sure that you are taking the correct dose of Levothyroxin. As you begin thyroid medicine, you should have your doctor check your T4 every month or so until you and the doctor are convinced that your levels are OK. Won't take long to decide. ...Read more

Last week my TSH was 58. Now TSH is 39.68 and t3, (liothyronine) t4, ft3 are normal and ft4 is below normal. I've not taken any medicines. But TSH is reduced.Help me?
Hello i had tyriod function test my T3 (liothyronine) /3.12 and T4 /155.82 TSH /0.66 do I have to do surgery or it can cure by medicine what should I do .
Appear normal: Did you mean T4 15.82? What is the unit of measurement in your lab? Even if you had abnormal tests that doesn't usually lead to surgery. Unless one has a large goiter that is putting pressure onto their throat or has 'nodule(s)', lumps within the thyroid gland that are suspicious for cancer, surgery is not needed. If there are such nodules they need to be biopsied with a very thin needle. (fna bx). ...Read more
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 more

My TSH is .005, T4 free is normal (1.41) T3 (liothyronine) is high (245) & T3 (liothyronine) Free Serum high (5.8), TSI normal, do i need treatment asap? drugs or I-131?
Needs watching: I have seen this often and with hyperthyroidism the free T4 is almost always elevated so your normal level is reassuring even though the T3 (liothyronine) is a bit high. If you don't have a large thyroid or symptoms such as rapid heart rate and sweating, Often the TSH will return to normal on its own and if the next free T4 is high you can be started on medication then. ...Read more

Thyroxine dose: Was your TSH normal before, and now it is low? Over the years, your dose requirements for thyroxine can change, which is why a TSH should be checked periodically. Another possibility: the brand of thyroxine changed. Pharmacies sometimes switch people between different brands to save a few pennies, and there are difference in bioavailability which can affect tsh. ...Read more
Do i need medicine testosterone total 58 thyroid peroxidase ab 359 T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 TSH 4.08 fti 2.0 do I have hashimoto missed my period 1st time or preg?
Possibly: Your TSH is in the high-normal range (your thyroid levels are borderline low for you). You also make antibodies that may further limit your thyroid's ability to make thyroid hormone over time. Most docs would decide on treatment on a case-by-case basis. Unless you were pregnant - then TSH of 4 definitely needs treatment. Home pregnancy test & talking w/ your doctor are the best next steps. ...Read more
See Your Endo MD: Just having high T3 (liothyronine) does not give a good picture what is wrong. Need to get a complete picture of what is going on? ...Read more
Maybe none: T3 (liothyronine) & T4 are the active thyroid hormones. But low T3 (liothyronine) by itself may be normal, unless either T4 is low or TSH is elevated, then total thyroid production is likely low. See your doctor for full evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
