But your testing does suggest that you need further evaluation for the cause of your hyperthyroidism. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Tsh stands for thyroid stimulating hormone. It does exactly that-- tells your thyroid to make thyroid hormone. If your thyroid isn't making enough hormone, your TSH will increase. And if your thyroid is making too much hormone, your TSH will go down. But cancer is usually not the cause for a high or low tsh. And you can have a completely normal TSH and still have thyroid cancer. Hope that helps! ...Read more

I had a us of my thyroid and they found a hypoechoic nodule measuring 0.413 x 0.546cm. Blood test came back normal TSH and free T4 really nervous.?
Please don't worry: One of the next steps is usually a fine needle aspiration biopsy, which involves using a very skinny needle to remove cells from the nodule. In my experience, most of these cells are benign, especially give the size of your nodule. However, if they are malignant or suspicious, you will need thyroid surgery. Most thyroid cancer (papillary type) can be cured. ...Read more

Thyroid blood test: normal tsh, and normal t 4, slightly lower free t3 (liothyronine). What is a normal TSH level?
0.4-4.5: In most labs, the normal TSH ranges between 0.4 and 4.5. Most people have TSH levels under 2.5. One can still be normal with higher TSH levels, but if you have hypothyroid symptoms, a mildly high TSH could be a sign of developing hypothyroidism. Free T3 (liothyronine) levels are not accurate in many labs, so a slightly low level may be meaningless. You should see an endocrinologist if you have symptoms. ...Read more
Can having my period during blood test affect results of a thyroid test for TSH & FT4 or does it not have an affect?
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, the circumstance you described should not affect the result materially.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more

Thyroid function: Hi. The TSH and free T4 test your thyroid function. If your thyroid gland is over active (hyperthyroid) or underachieve (hypothyroid), it will show up in those tests.

Just had a blood test that showed Thyroid level: T4 1.9 TSH 0.07. Have appt. With endo in 3 weeks am very worried. What does this mean? Graves disease
Hyperthyroid: It appears that your FT4 is high, and TSH low, which indicates hyperthyroidism. And it appears you have symptoms (palpitations? Sweating? tremor?). Graves disease is the most likely cause. Don't worry. This can be controlled and treated, usually starting with medications (eg. Methimazole, b-blocker) and then you should discuss radioactive iodine with your endocrinologist. ...Read more

If that is the case treatment may include some hormone replacement but also addressing the immune system. ...Read more
