Can any doc tell me what's the difference between thyroxine, thyrocalcitonin and triiodothyronine?
Yes: Thyroxine also known as T4 is the main product of the thyroid gland. Triiodothyronine or t3 (liothyronine) is also a product of the thyroid but most of it comes from the conversion of T4 in the human tissues by the enzyme deiodinase. T3 (liothyronine) is the active and most potent form of thyroid hormone. Thyrocalcitonin or just calcitonin is unrelated to the above two, comes from the c-cells, and affects the calcium level. ...Read more
Tsh went from 6.43 to 3.98 within a few months.T4 is 1.4 , triiodothyronine 2.9 (2-4.4). Tpo ab went from 9 to 6 on the second test as well. Hashi's?
Does normal (1.01) "thyroxine (t4) free, direct, s, " normal (0.931) "tsh, " and low (67) "triiodothyronine (t3)" = Synthroid dose good? Or go up/down?
Triiodothyronine : 0.76 ng/ml; thyroxine : 5.27 ; thyroid stimulating hormone : 1.15. Is this normal?
Probably: In interpreting thyroid hormone levels, you have to consider several things: What is the clinical situation at the time of the lab draw- as stress, medications, even pregnancy can all effect the levels and what they should be. Every lab also has a slightly different 'normal' range depending on how they measure the hormone. Seeing the trend also helps - Are they stable, going up or down? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

On syn. 50 mcg labs are: TSH 4.45; rt3 23.3; T4 10.4; t3uptake 30; free T3 3.1; triiodothyronine T3 121. Increase synthroid (thyroxine)? Don't sleep, fast heart.
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more

Sometimes: Sometimes they are. For the most part, expired drugs simply lose potency once past their expiration date. There are, however, some drugs that actually become harmful if taken after they expire. As such, it is best to throw out any medications you have after a year. ...Read more
