Does t4 and tsh levels fluctuate? My t4 free is 1.0 (0.9-1.8ng/dl) and tsh is 0.88 (0.35-5.5) 1 month ago they were t4, 1.4 and tsh, 1.06
They will fluctuate.: The thyroid gland responds to whatever may be going on physiologically in the body, and as such these numbers may vary a bit day to day, or even hour to hour. As long as these variations are within the limits of normal, then you're likely to be OK. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

14 mo old boy: chest cough-6months. Noisy breathing since birth. Red, watery eyes-6months. Proj vomit 2 wks. 10 ear infctions. No allergies. Why sick?
ENT evaluation: A history of frequent ear infections and noisy breathing makes me concerned about large tonsils and adenoids. An evaluation by an ENT would be helpful.

Hello,My baby is 22months old having fever103 cough LABS:serum IgE level 310 ,MP (ICT)negative,CXR minimal perihilar infiltration , taking antibiotic?
Sounds viral: Most viral infections, such as influenza, can give high fevers and cough with a similar chest x-ray pattern. Unless your child has a high WBC, respiratory distress, is immunosuppressed or has fever over 5-7 days, I would continue to treat symptomatically with fever and fluid management as antibiotics are not helpful for viral infections. I hope your child feels better soon. ...Read more

Prolactinoma ?Have 28yr old daughter post 10 yr birth control.6 mos no menses.Blood wk indicates prolactin @57 Other poss.causes?
Prolactin elevation: A prolactin of 57 is elevated, and can disrupt menstrual cycles, but does not necessarily mean a pituitary tumor. There are many other causes of mildly high prolactin, including many medications, nipple/chest wall stimulation and hypothyroidism. If it is a prolactinoma, it is likely a very small one. Best to see an Endocrinologist. ...Read more

56 year old (arthritis, lichen sclerosis, yeast) normal blood work except sed rate (42) and alk phos (121) vitamin d 23.9. What are the implications?
Can't be sure.: Blood work without context can be very misleading. Your doc should be able to explain why they drew these tests and what they think of the results. I might be concerned about the alk phos or ESR if you had a lot of symptoms, but if you are feeling well I am not much concerned. I would suggest that you take 1000 iu vit d each day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chronic hives X 9months. Have been using Splenda X over 10 years. Labs and skin test normal. IgE normal. Can I develop a sudden allergy to Splenda?

Unlikely the PPDA: Allergic reactions to ppda (para-phenylenediamene) found in most permanent hair dyes can be profound, prolonged and severe. If you are still having those types of symptoms you need to see your doctor to make sure something else is not going on. Don't just assume it the PPD reaction two months after. Good luck to you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
