I have thyroid problem. My TSH level is at 0.001 right now and it is not increasing for the last 6 months with homeopathy treatment. Please advice me?
TSH = .001?: That's an extremely low TSH -- making me wonder if you're hyperthyroid? You haven't really described your symptoms -- so it's hard to advise you, or to know whether homeopathy is helping you or is even appropriate for you at this time. There are some thyroid disorders which need conventional treatment, rather than relying on homeopathy alone. Collaboration between doctors is key here. ...Read more
I suffering from thyroid problem recently my TSH value was 0.035 what will be the dosage of medicine to take?
Depends.: That's a question the doctor that ordered the test will need to answer for you. We need more information. If your thyroid problem is hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and are you on medication (levothyroxine) now, your doctor may tell you your dose will be going down. If your problem is hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) or another condition, that will be an entirely different conversation. ...Read more
I have a thyroid problem and my TSH is 0.940, ft3 4.85 and ft4 0.939 result is this severe? Thanks
Normal but,, : These results are in normal ranges depending on the units used. Having said this, it's a good idea to get this checked often as the TSH is low normal and the ft4 is also normal if the units used were ng/dl, but is also low normal. This could develop into hypothyroidism or low thyroid so it's wise to check up with your doctor on this and keep a close watch on it in case you need meds. Good luck. ...Read more

Can 400mg lithobid daily cause thyroid problems? Since my TSH before-after rise from 3, 2 to 14, 3 mlu/l.
Yes...: It is not at all unusual for lithium to affect the thyroid and cause hypothyroidism, which is what it appears you are seeing with that increase in the tsh. If someone needs to stay on lithium, then the thyroid issue needs to be treated. See the dr prescribing your lithium who may want to refer you to your regular medical dr or an endocrinologist. It is not usually a reason to go off the lithium. ...Read more
