MY TSH LEVEL IS 10.4, BUT IT WAS NEARLY 4 A MONTH AGO, CAN YOU PLEASE SAY WHAT MAY BE THE REASON FOR SUDDEN SHOOTING UP OF THIS?

TSH: Thyroid stimulating hormone is part of the feedback control loop that connects the sensors in your brain and pituitary gland with the function of the thyroid. If the thyroid is failing, your body may not be getting enough of the hormone effect (e.g. becoming hypothyroid) and your pituitary responds by sending the message to the thyroid to put out more. Find out why by seeing your endocrinologist. ...Read more

You need more L-T4: Hi. You're on a relatively low dose of levothyroxine (L-T4), and your elevated TSH is tell you that your body is not getting enough thyroid hormone. Your doc will respond by raising your L-T4 dose. He/she will continue to follow tour TSH (and free T4 too, probably) until your labs are stable, and then periodically thereafter. It's easy! Good luck! ...Read more

What could be the reason for a low T4 and low TSH on the bloodwork?

How low?: If these were taken during a time that you were emotionally distraught, and they are not strikingly removed from the reference range (which is set so that several percent of healthies fall outside), your physician will repeat them when your life gets better. If way-low, pituitary disease is a concern. ...Read more

I hv hashimotos (tsh 2.71) and am on levo. Have ige>770. Other than parasites what are the other reason s for IgE to be high ?

Probably none: This ige level is considerably higher than most people's, but this does not by itself mean it will be linked to any disease, or that this information is useful. The hyper-ige immune syndromes have preposterously high values and i don't think you're in this range. If your personal physician isn't concerned, i would not be either; if you have helminth exposure, "ova-and-parasites" may be worth it. ...Read more
