What causes low TSH, low T4 and low T3 (liothyronine)?

What causes low TSH, low T4 and low T3 (liothyronine)?

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, it would have helped to know the actual values. Even though all these parameters may be low, these may yet be in the normal range. ...Read more

Low total t3 (liothyronine) 46 and low range TSH and T4? Hypothyroidism? Would it be treated with supplement?

Low total t3 (liothyronine) 46 and low range TSH and T4? Hypothyroidism? Would it be treated with supplement?

Low tsh: If you only needed thyroid supplement, your tsh would be elevated. Since your tsh is not elevated and your thyroid hormones are low,there could be a problem with your pituitary gland. An endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate,advise and treat you and more than thyroid supplement may be needed. Appropriate tests will be ordered. ...Read more

Does a very low level TSH hormone mean hypo - or hyperthyroidism? T3 (liothyronine) is normal range, T4 is at the low level borderline.

Does a very low level TSH hormone mean hypo - or hyperthyroidism? T3 (liothyronine) is normal range, T4 is at the low level borderline.

Low TSH: Generally indicates an excess in thyroid hormone. That may be chronic w/hyperthyroidism -- or temporary w/thyroid inflammation. See you doctor. If you're already on thyroid replacement, the dose is too high. If you're on t3, (liothyronine) get off of it as it can be dangerous and doesn't work well as chronic replacement. Use brand name T4 only. ...Read more

Do low T3 (liothyronine) and free T3 (liothyronine) values mean hypothyroidism?

Do low T3 (liothyronine) and free T3 (liothyronine) values mean hypothyroidism?

Possibly.: These along with low t4, free t4, and high TSH would mean hypothyroidism. But a low TSH would possibly mean a hypothalamus/pituitary problem. If any of the thyroid values/tsh are not low, then it might be wise to keep following before having a diagnosis made and therapy done. Check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read more

What does a normal tsh, low T4 and low T3 (liothyronine) mean?

What does a normal tsh, low T4 and low T3 (liothyronine) mean?

Perhaps nothing: Such tests need to be repeated. If the T4 and T3 (liothyronine) were measured as total T4 & T3 (liothyronine) it may mean only that the binding proteins of thyroid hormone are low. Ask your doctor what was done and his/her interpretation. ...Read more

Can not having near optimal range total t4 (6.3) tsh (1.02) and low total t3 (liothyronine) cause carb sensitivity and hypoglycemia, hypokalemia periodic paralysis?

Can not having near optimal range total t4 (6.3) tsh (1.02) and low total t3 (liothyronine) cause carb sensitivity and hypoglycemia, hypokalemia periodic paralysis?

Unlikely: Your thyroid test findings are normal and not likely to be the cause of your symptoms. It would be prudent to consult your doctor. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Listen Charlie: Please forgive me. I'm a pathologist focused on lab medicine. Labs mean NOTHING in the absence of a history and physical exam. And labs are not simply "high" or "low". These may be the labs of a bodybuilder with hookworms, or a man gravely sick. All I know is that if your physician won't sit and explain your labs -- and these worry me greatly -- get with some else. ...Read more

What could cause a low WBC (2.7), low hgb, low and hct, with differential high mono, and high gran?

Virus infection. : Most likely it's a virus infection. If there are no symptoms of a recent infection, a repeat test is important to establish a proper trend. A physical examination is important to look for signs of various illnesses that could lead to these lab results. Remember, labs are not as valuable as a good physical examination. ...Read more

Person with normal Total T4, T3 (liothyronine) Uptake, FTI, Ultrasensitive TSH but LOW Total T3 (liothyronine) (63.55 ng/dl) = Synthroid dose needs to increase?

Person with 

normal Total T4, T3 (liothyronine) Uptake, FTI, Ultrasensitive TSH 

but 

LOW Total T3 (liothyronine) (63.55 ng/dl) 

= 

Synthroid dose needs to increase?

It's OK: Hi. Your TSH is "normal", but I'd shoot for a value on therapy generally around the 1.0-1.5 range. The total T4, T3 (liothyronine) resin uptake, and FTI are prehistoric tests no one in the thyroid field has used for years. Your body regulates conversion of T4 to T3 (liothyronine), so your T3 (liothyronine) should be just what the body ordered. Your T3 (liothyronine) is close to the normal range; if you repeat it it's likely to be within normal range. ...Read more
