T Uptake Thyroid Profile
Thyroid Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?have Hypo symptoms
Elevated: TPO levels are associated with autoimmune thryroid disease/thryoiditis, for example Hashimoto disease. The thyroid US findings are also consistent with thyroiditis. Talk to your doc about next steps. ...Read more
What does it mean to have high tpo antibodies but Normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) function? Enlarged thyroid-US heterogenous thyroid parenchyma with hypervascularity
Thyroiditis: You likely have thyroiditis (autoimmune)in its early stage and you need to consult your doctor for Rx and monitor. ...Read more
Low TSH Borderline low T4 normal t3 (liothyronine). Thyroid uptake scan..low uptake noted w\o nodules. Radiologist said HYPOTHYROIDISM?! All other possible test norm
Need follow-up: 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, there is inconsistency in your results. Both TSH and T4 being low does not add up. You may need to repeat the lab tests, not necessarily the scan, in about 6 months to see what direction these results are going in. ...Read more
normal Total T4, T3 (liothyronine) Uptake, FTI, Ultrasensitive TSH
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
Thyroid swelling. Ultrasound heterogenous thyroid parynchema with hypervascularity. Blood test-normal tsh t4 t3 (liothyronine) etc but >1300 TPo antibodies?
Hard to say: Ive yet to have anyone NOT have elevated TPo but I havent sent many. The standard answer would be that it likley is GRAVES disease starting but if there arent a lot of symptoms and the labs are normal you wouldnt give treatment. Retesting if symptoms and at about every 3 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had normal tsh, t3, (liothyronine) t4, but antithyroglobulin antibody level is 263 and thyroid uptake showed homogenous uptake at 56%. What should I do?
Auto immune thyroid: Your thyroid functions are normal presence of thyroglobulin antibodies indicate autoimmune disease though more sensitive test is tpo autoimmune disease makes thyroid inefficient and hence iodine trapppping is increased of these people 30 percent will develop undersctivity. ...Read more
Free T3 (liothyronine) high, thyroid peroxidase ab greater than 1000, thyroglobulin ab elevated but TSH ultrasensitive normal as well as thyroglobulin. ?
Autoimmune thyroid: All this says is you have hashimoto's thyroid disease. Nothing else specific. Are you taking thyroid medication? What kind? ...Read more
My thyroglobulin antibody was <0.9 other thyroid test are normal tsh, free4, tpo, tg panel, but have overactive thyroid, confused!
Not sure if need any: The TSH is normal so it might be a variation of normal or euthyroid. It also might be a developing thyroid condition, but there would be symptoms, like fatigue. It would be wise to see your doctor to follow up. ...Read more
Not yet: Anti thyroid antibodies are a sign that your immune system is attacking your thyroid gland. Over time, your gland may fail and them you will require thyroid hormone replacement. Your physician should check your TSH level periodically. When TSH starts to rise, consider medication. Antithyroid antibodies raise your risk of having infertility issues. Make sure your ob/gyn is aware of this. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tsh 0.01, free t4, 1.34, tpo 113 . On 25 synthroid, (thyroxine) 5 cytomel. Doc not happy with tsh. Isn't TSH suppressed when taking t3? Hashimoto's by biopsy.
Depends: Your TSH is suppressed. Consider finding a good integrative medicine doctor or an nd to help with the autoimmune process. They can suggest things to actually bring down the tpo level and help your body heal. For your best long term outcome, more needs to be done than just thyroid meds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
TSH is constantly suppressed.FT3 borderline high. FT4 borderline low. Tested 5 times. Thyroid uptake scan = *low 5.3% wo nodules. Please help explain.
Thyroiditis: Why are you having your thyroid tested? what are your symptoms? start from the begining. Medicine is not about scans and numbers. TSH is suppressed by the elevated T3 (liothyronine) as feedback inhibition. I would expect normal to high uptake but it can be low in some cases of Hashimoto's thyroiditis. thyroid scan in Hashimoto's thyroiditis can mimic a wide range of thyroid disorders. Thyroid may be burning out. ...Read more
What causes an elevated reverse T3 (liothyronine) level but the other thyroid levels are normal thyroid??? My reverse t3 (liothyronine) was 35
Many causes: First, I am impressed your doctor tested reverse T3 as few doctors ever check it. There are many possible causes of increased reverse T3 including high cortisol (from chronic stress, emotional or physical), inflammatory conditions, injuries and infections like Lyme disease (which is surprisingly common and often undiagnosed). See http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/reverse-t3/ for more info. ...Read more
Do I need thyroid hormone if I have low free t3, (liothyronine) normal TSH and high tpo antibodies?
Possibly.: The TSH is normal so it might be a variation of normal or euthyroid. It also might be a developing thyroid condition, but there would be symptoms, like fatigue. The tpo antibodies might mean hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is usually associated with hypothyroidism. It would be wise to see your doctor to follow up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do benzodiazepines have any affect on tsh, t3, (liothyronine) t4, free t3, (liothyronine) free t4, or reverse T3 (liothyronine) levels? Will they affect my thyroid test results?
Sometimes: Benzos do not change basal secretion of TSH, but they do decrease the amount of TSH released by exposure to cold. In one study, diazepam reduced affinity of nuclear T3 (liothyronine) binding. So benzos can have some theoretical effects, but it should not be enough to affect standard thyroid tests. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid levels: You do not supply the normal range for these values, but they all appear to be normal. In most US labs, the normal range of TSH is about 0.4 to 4.0, so that value of 0.99 is normal. ...Read more
Thyroid ultrasound showed heterogenous echogenicity hypervascular thyroid. Thyroid labs normal. Any thoughts on what this is?
TSH=0.04(0.4-4.5mIU/L)FreeT4=1.5(0.8-1.8ng/dL)FreeT3=2.5(2.3-4.2pg/mL). Have Hashimotos disease, on 112mcg Synthroid. why is tsh so low FT3/FT4 normal?
Any symptoms?: 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, just one parameter, in this case TSH, slightly out of whack is not a cause for alarm. You may watch and wait. If your clinical situation changes it may warrant repeating the tests. Wish you good health! ...Read more
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
