Are these thyroid levels normal? Dr insists they are, but I feel awful & have a family history.
TSH 1.40 uIU/mL
T4 Free 1.06 ng/dL
T3 Free 2.9 pg/mL
Normal results: 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, your laboratory results for thyroid function are normal. There may be other causes for your symptoms, including depression. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, 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
I had bloodwork done because of exhaustion and other symptoms. Levels came back T3 (liothyronine) at 1.21 (.87-1.78) TSH 2.65 (.35-5.5) ft4 .78. Hypothyroidism?
Your numbers: Are technically normal, but may be slightly inappropriate for your age. Some endocrinologist may give you a clinical trial of low dose brand name T4 replacement and see if you improve, as long as your lab remains in the normal range. Check w/your doctor for a referral. These levels will not cause any symptoms you would be aware of. ...Read more

I had a thyroid panel test and my results are below. Should I be taking medication?
TSH - 8.070
T4, Total - 5.4
T3 Uptake Ratio - 26
Repeat test: Ideally, thyroid panel tests should be evaluated based on the reference range for the laboratory where the tests are performed. Most commonly, the reference range for TSH = 0.5 - 5.5. Although your TSH may be slightly high, you may not need treatment. Your total and free T4 are normal. Results such as these usually warrant retesting in 1-3 months. TSH will often return to normal without treatment. ...Read more

Could 60 grams of soy protein a day interfere with Synthroid absorption? TSH in Dec. 1.25. TSH now 3.55 - on Medifast diet - lots of HYPER symptoms
Thyroid: Synthroid absorption is key. It is to be taken by itself on an empty stomach for an hour. Your TSH going up does not coincide with hyperthyroidism. TSH is the hormone that is "telling your body/thyroid gland to produce or not produce thyroxine or thyroid hormone. When the TSH is high it means production is lower than the brain wants (your brain is "screaming" for more t4), meaning hypo still. ...Read more
My latest test for free thyroxine
was 18.7. Tsh was 3.58. Tg antibody test is 5.01 iu/ml. I feel fatigued and unwell. Are these tests okay?
Can thyroid disorder make me exosted during pregnancy. Im 25 weeks and just got my test result TSH low 0.29and T4 13.1and T3 (liothyronine) 198 high.
Consider followup: Based on the results you reported, you are actually hyperthyroid. If you are on thyroid replacement, you are likely overreplaced. However, it may be limited to interpret the labs accurately if you are take Cytomel (liothyronine) or T3 preparations. Your exhaustion is unlikely to be related to your current thyroid levels. Hypothyroid may make someone fatigue but hyperthyroid state does not. ...Read more

They will fluctuate.: The thyroid gland responds to whatever may be going on physiologically in the body, and as such these numbers may vary a bit day to day, or even hour to hour. As long as these variations are within the limits of normal, then you're likely to be OK. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Graves Disease: Most people with graves disease are overweight due the stimulation of their appetite from xs thyroid hormone.

Normal glucose test. Can eating lots of sugar (cookies) and carbs in 3 days reverse normalcy and cause gestational diabetes? 108 glucose 19.6 BMI 25w
Short-term sugar OK: Secondary forms of diabetes (not the autoimmune insulin-requiring types), including the gestational type, are caused by cells become desensitized to insulin. This happens when Insulin levels are always high due to high sugar intake. It takes time; pregnancy just adds to the process. Three days of cake or girl scout cookies won't do anything if you weren't already heading that way. ...Read more
Done a blood test due to irregular periods.Hb 10.8 gram/dl,
total T3 (liothyronine) 180.6 ng/dl,
total T4 9.79 µg/dl,
tsh 5.28 µlu/ml. Do I have hypothyroidism?
Not online: On health tap we are not really allowed to make diagnoses: this is for your protection, mainly. I will say that most endocrinologists nowadays would consider a TSH of over about 3.0 to be elevated, and so you might be hypothyroid. Ask the doctor who tested you, or consider checking with a endocrinologist or an re. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Do i need treatment if my TSH 7.69 high normal free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) and elevated thyroid antibodies?
Yes: Tsh 7.69 with high tpo is not "high normal" but high and indicates hypothyroidism. Having high tpo indicates autoimmune or hashimoto's thyroiditis. I suggest adding selenium zinc b complex and vitamin c and iodine and avoiding gluten for a month and rechecking levels in a month. If no change then you might need thyroid supplementation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
