My tsh, 3rd generation test, came back still high. So, I need more medicine?

Yes: If the TSH is elevated in a patient with hypothyroidism, (who has been on the current dose for 6 to 8 weeks) this is an indication that the current dose is not enough. Read more

If my tsh, 3rd generation is high is that a thyroid promblem?

High TSH: This indicates failing thyroid gland. Tsh is the most sensitive test of thyroid function. It's sort of like the red light in your car. You may have to add gas or coolant or your car will eventually slow down or stop. Read more

What is high tsh, 3rd generation?

What is high tsh, 3rd generation?

Same as others: The 3d generation TSH assays are best at the lowest ranges - the upper range is debatable as tsh, unlike most products in the blood is not distributed in populations in a bell curve. The upper limits of the "normal" range of 4 to 5 in assays of all generations is probably wrong. Read more

My TSH 3rd generation test came back at 2.036. The range is 0.340-5.600uiu/m. The test said high sensitive 3rd generation tsh. What does this mean?

Not a whole lot!: An elevated TSH is the main criteria most docs use to diagnose hypothyroidism. While most docs feel it is not abnormal unless above 5.6 or so, many endocrinologists feel anything above 3 is abnormal, and some even feel a level above 2 could indicate problems- see http://abt. Cm/1562fwq actually, many with a totally normal TSH may still have thyroid problems- see http://bit. Ly/18atkro & comment:. Read more

Rsults of my blood test indicate low LH and high TSH (3rd generation). What does this indicate?

Rsults of my blood test indicate low LH and high TSH (3rd generation). What does this indicate?

Hypothyroid: A high TSH is consistent with primary hypothyroidism. You should have a free T4 level done. Lh is unrelated to thyroid. A low level could be related to medications, such as an oral contraceptive or other estrogen usage (or testosterone in a male). If your periods are regular, it is likely a lab error. Read more

Does a tsh-third generation check the T3 (liothyronine) level?

Does a tsh-third generation check the T3 (liothyronine) level?

No. TSH at low conc: This is designed to check accurately the TSH levels at low concentrations. This helps people to diagnose thyroid disorders more accurately. This is not t3, (liothyronine) which is a form of thyroid hormone along with t4. Free T4 measures the approximate amount of readily available thyroid hormone for use in the body. Read more

My thyroid peroxidase antibodiy level is high 1010.8u/ml what does it mean TSH 3 generation 3.39 t4free 1.1 thyroxinet4 9.5 please answer?

My thyroid peroxidase antibodiy level is high 1010.8u/ml what does it mean TSH 3 generation 3.39 t4free 1.1 thyroxinet4 9.5 please answer?

Normal function: It means your thyroid is functioning normally, but you have antibodies against your thyroid. We don't really know why this happens. It does not cause any symptoms. No treatment is needed. You should, however, have your thyroid hormone levels checked once or twice a year because you are at risk of developing thyroid dysfunction. Read more

Tsh levels are these normal? Tsh- 3rd generation- 1.04 miu/l, then another one was 0.63 miu/l. Tsh w/free T4 rfx 1.50 miu/l. Are these normal levels?

Tsh levels are these normal? Tsh- 3rd generation- 1.04 miu/l, then another one was 0.63 miu/l. Tsh w/free T4 rfx 1.50 miu/l. Are these normal levels?

Probably: Most labs include a reference range (or normal range) in their reports. While there can be some variation from one lab to another, almost all labs would consider TSH values between 0.5 to 3.0 to be normal. All three of your levels fall in this range, and so would be considered normal. Read more

My TSH 3rd generation level came back at 9.490. MY T4 was normal and T3 (liothyronine) was low. Taking 200 mcg. What do these numbers mean?

Still hypothyroid: Not sure how long u have been on thyroid replacement, but if been on 200mcg daily over 6-8 weeks, likely require increase dose. If u have just had u'r medication adjusted the. Repeat TSH usually done in 6 wks; the numbers show that u'r body is still in hypothyroid state and that u'r thyroid gland is making less and less hormone or the T4 is not being converted to T3, (liothyronine) so thyroid medicine needed Read more

Two possible causes of high levels of TSH?

Two possible causes of high levels of TSH?

Hypothyroidism or...: Over 99% of the tine the cause is hypothyroidism, which itself has many causes, as mentioned by Dr. Kaur.
I advise everyone with hypothyroidism to ask their doctor to test them for thyroiditis, as most will have this and treatment is a bit different from plain hypothyroidism.
Another cause can be a pituitary gland tumor. Most pituitary tumors are benign. Read more
