Normal Tsh High T4
Tsh 0.01, T3 (liothyronine) free 4.3, t4. Free 1.8 ? Tsh low T3 (liothyronine) very slightly elevated T4 high normal, what is this? Tsh usually normal? Could stress do that?
T4 is elevated. 14.4 but Free T4 and Free T3 normal, TSH normal, antithroglobulin AB is 14, normal range 0-115?
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. Having said that, if free T4 and T3 and TSH are normal, there is no cause for concern. T4 may be elevated in women on birth control pills. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Blood test TSH 3.40--considered "high" per lab . Has reference range changed lately? Free T4 .9 (normal range)
have thyroid nodule, prolactinoma
Tsh 0.01, T3 (liothyronine) free 4.3, t4. Free 1.8 ? Tsh low T3 (liothyronine) very slightly elevated T4 high normal? Pcp says nothing is wrong?
It's near average: although all the numbers are running in the right direction for an activated thyroid (autonomous nodule secreting thyroid hormone is my guess). In any case, follow up repeats are a good idea for tests that show an abnormality but not a definite nor significant nor consistent one. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
TSH normal at 1.35 T4 8 (range 10-20) T3 (liothyronine) 5.8 (range 3.2-6.0) what are reasons for low T4 levels when TSH is normal and T3 (liothyronine) high normal?
Hypothyroidism: This likely indicates secondary hypothyroidism, due to problem with your pituitary gland. Normally, if the T4 is low, the pituitary will produce more TSH to try and induce the thyroid glad to produce more T4. However, if there is a problem with the pituitary, then the TSH is either low or normal despite a low T4. Be sure to follow up with the doctor how ordered these tests. ...Read more
Low T3 (liothyronine) uptake (21%), Normal TSH (3.190), normal T4 (9.4), normal free thyroxine index (2.0). Also low BUN/creatine ratio (7). Is this normal?
Crp 18 normal <5 esr 18 normal <17,CEA .8 normal<5,CA19.9 12normal<34, LDH 142 normal<248,wbc is 7 normal 4-11 rbc 4.7 IS CRP,ESR HIGH DUE TO CANCER?
Had high TSH (4.6). Refused Synthroid (thyroxine). Repeat test: Normal TSH (2.4), normal T4 (0.98), elevated T3 (4.8), negative thyroid antibodies. Any concerns?
Normal T3 (3.53) and T4 (1.42), very low TSH (0.02), thyrogobulin is 69, thyroid uptake imagining "significantly abnormal and below normal range"...
Unusual combination: This is a very unusual combination of results +scan. The most likely cause(if you are not taking excess thyroid hormone and have appropriate Iodine levels in your blood) is thyroiditis, Which type would need antibody assessment and exam of the gland. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tsh 0.01, T3 (liothyronine) free 4.3, t4. Free 1.8 ? Tsh low T3 (liothyronine) very slightly elevated T4 high normal, what is this? Is it hyperthyroidism? Pcp saying it's ok?
Tsh 0.01, T3 (liothyronine) free 4.3, t4. Free 1.8 ? Tsh low T3 (liothyronine) very slightly elevated T4 high normal? Pcp doesn't think much, repeat in 6 weeks?
Thyroid levels: I think I already answered your question about cause. The elevation in FT4 and FT3 is subtle, depending on the lab just barely at or above the normal range. However the low TSH makes me think it is real. Are you having symptoms (palpitations, heat intolerance, tremor, nervous)? Repeating the labs is a good idea, but I would prob not wait 6 weeks. You may need an Endocrinologist. ...Read more
High tsh- 5.5. Normal free T3 (liothyronine) & t4. Also normal total t3& t4. What causes this? Pituitary gland issue not thyroid?
May be normal: All lab 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. Your TSH is at the upper end of normal and may be normal for you. You may discuss the issue of repeating the test in a year or so. ...Read more
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?
Go see your doctor: So you got your results. Whoever ordered the test(s) should have interpreted your results for you and offered you a diagnosis eg hypothyroidism & treatment plan, eg start or increase levothyroxine, then plan to recheck labs in 6wks. Communication w/your family doc is imperative. ...Read more
Thyroid nodule. FNA benign. male. Last 2 tests. TSH high normal 4.0, and 4.2. FT4 Normal. TPO AB high at 39 (0-9 range)
do I need medication?
No: One of the questions with regard to thyroid nodules pertains to number and activity of the nodule. If on scan one sees several nodules, the dx for the most part is goiter. FNA can easily miss the nodule or can be read as an adenoma. A functional scan should be performed. If hot the nodule should be left alone. If the solitary nodule is cold there is a 30% chance the nodule is or will be Ca. ...Read more
High Total T, high SHBG, low Free T, very high FSH (22.8), normal LH, normal prolactin, low estradiol, normal TSH, normal metabolic and CBC. Ideas?
Hormone tests: By themselves, without context, these labs don't say much of anything. They are confusing, and beg the question of why they are being done. Best to see an Endocrinologist. ...Read more

F/u with your Dr: Asymptomatic patients with an elevated TSH, but normal thyroxine levels, are referred to as having Subacute or Subclinical hypothyroidism. There are varying recs as to whether they should be treated, especially if no symptoms. I suggest f/u with your Dr to repeat tests in 3-6 months with thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO), to determine if persistent and risk for developing overt hypothyroidism. ...Read more
