Tsh 3rd Generation Blood Work
I recently had blood work done. My result for the TSH 3rd gen came back 1.360. Is this something to be concerned about?
Having blood work tom. 48F. Think my hormones are changing but the only thyroid tests my dr ordered were T4 (free) & TSH (3rd gen). Is this complete?
I had blood work done & my TSH results were 0.006.. Can you please tell me if that is normal or what does that mean?
Normal TSH.: Thyroid Stimulating Hormone is made in the pituitary gland and it controls the thyroid. If your thyroid hormone level is low then the TSH signal from the pituitary increases. If the TSH is high then it usually means you need more thyroid hormone. That TSH number is in the normal range. There are conditions where that relationship between the blood tests doesn't work. Check with your doctor. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Yes.: If the TSH is within the reference range, is is rare that the patient would need any adjustment in thyroid treatment. Initiating higher doses with a TSH within the normal range may increase the risk of osteoporosis and arrhythmia. Usually, perceived symptoms that led to the testing of the TSH are not from the thyroid if the TSH is "ok." Look for other causes of symptoms. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
27 yrs old. This years blood work showed: Low TSH, and total T-3 and free T-4 are both high. Last year's test were fine. What could thus indicate?
Mild hyperthyroidism: Unless you are taking thyroid medication (and taking too much) this could mean mild hyperthyroidism. If your doc measured TSH, FT3 and FT4, (s)he must have suspected something. Most likely cause of hyperthyroidism in a 27 yo woman is Graves disease or one of several forms of thyroiditis. You may need to see an Endocrinologist. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
My blood work showed that my tsh reflex is low. On 6/12 it was .12. On 7/24 it was .01. What does this mean?
Hyperthyroidism: Low TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is indicative of an overactive thyroid, whether due to excess medication or just naturally. Watch for racing heart (palpitations), tremors, weight loss, anxiety, insomnia, etc. Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hyperthyroidism/basics/definition/con-20020986. Work closely w/your doc to figure out why your TSH is low and correct it. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
How soon could i go for blood work after first reduction of tapazole from 15 mg to 10 mg? Tsh was 5 last time (.01 prev.) could TSH rise further?
4-6 weeks: Every 4-6 weeks until stable then less. This should only be something confirmed by the doctor adjusting your medicine of course. Checking thyroid intervals too soon and the results are unreliable--this is why tests are not done sooner unless you are having concerning symptoms--in which case, your doctor wants to know. And, yes, your TSH may still alter or rise but this is unpredictable. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
