New Tsh Guidelines
Hypothyroid. : The new dose would need to be guided by your blood testing, and is not completely predictable. Barring any contraindication to such, I'd probably go up to 125-150 mcg and test blood in three weeks. Dose can be adjusted and blood can be checked every three weeks until the proper dose is realized. Always better to go slower than quicker in this regard. ...Read more
Normal range: Serum TSH level ranges from 1.0 to 38.9 miu/l for term newborn. ...Read more
Higher than adults.: Tsh concentrations in children are normally higher than in adults. The nacb (national academy of clinical biochemistry) set age-related reference limits at about 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml in normal-term infants at birth, 0.6–10 µiu/ml at 10 weeks old, 0.4–7.0 µiu/ml at 14 months and gradually dropping to adult levels, or 0.4–4.0 µiu/ml. So 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml is the range for newborns. ...Read more

1 CM hypoechoic nodule up from 6mm in 18 months. Also new 3mm hypoechoic nodule. Only bloodwork done was t4free, TPO, TSH, all normal. What do I do?
Before 50mcg Levothyroxin my TSH level was 3.23, new TSH level after 2 mo. of meds is 1.42. Should my Dr. up my medicine?
Not necessarily but: I feel one should adjust thyroid dose based on symptoms and levels of Free T3 (liothyronine). Many do benefit from doses that result in lower TSH levels- before doctors depended on TSH the average dose prescribed was double current averages! See http://www.nahypothyroidism.org/how-accurate-is-tsh-testing/ and http://www.thyroid-info.com/articles/david-derry.htm and see a doc who will test Free T3 (liothyronine) etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
TSH levels dropped from 6.89 to 0.02 uIU/ml in 6 weeks after taking Euthyrox 50 mcg. What's the new advice or recommended dosage for me (hypothyroid)?
Thyroid us 1.2cm by 0.9 nodule hypoechoic. Had previous in June 2014 saw 3 nodules 8mm and all are stable the large one is new. Tsh high 8.1. Freaking?
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules are benign, especially if multiple. Biopsy by needle aspiration may be useful for larger nodules, though recently the threshold for biopsy was lowered to just over 1 cm. Early detection of significant lesions is useful, but most cancers at young age are highly curable even if nodes involved. ...Read more
