Tsh Average Percentile
36 weeks pregnant. Taking 50mg of levothiroxine daily. TSH/T4 perfectly normal a month ago. Baby super active, measuring 40 percentile. I'm loosing considerably weight and appetite since a week, could this be related to current dose at this stage?
Possible: The dose of levothyroxine required does vary through pregnancy and after delivery. Discuss your weight loss and loss of appetite with your OB at your next visit. Normally these should be weekly at this point in pregnancy and you should be being weighed every visit. Hope this helps. Best wishes to you and the baby. ...Read more
Yes, becuase...: A high TSH is considered a sign of hypothyroidism, in fact many specialists feel any TSH above 3 is cause for concern. The important question is your level of thyroid hormones (esp. Free t3) ; if you have any symptoms of hypothyroidism- see http://bit.Ly/14aneey if your levels are fine ; you have no symptoms you may not need treatment but this should be monitored as you are at risk- see comment:. ...Read more
Depends: On who you ask. Most lab reports show normal as being 0.5 - 5 mlu/l, but many people feel the range should be 0.3 - 3. If you are being treated for hypothyroidism, the ideal range is 1 -2. I usually start to take notice when someone's TSH is >2.5. See http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003684.Htm. ...Read more
My TSH = .980 uiu/ml. My GP made no mention of it but according to the average range (listed next to MY results) this seems very low. True?
Depends: Some doctors consider 2 to be getting high. But really it is the balance of T3 to reverse T3 that matters. T4 is converted to both T3 and rt3, and T3 is like the gas while rt3 is like the brakes. Tsh does not reflect this balance and cannot be used in isolation to uncover thyroid problems. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why does my TSH change so often my level was 5.73 then 6.78 then.03 then .88 then5.88 then 9.7 they keep changing my dose ? This is all in a 4 month .
My TSH levels are 0.344. What does this mean and are there any symptoms associated with these levels?
1 of 3 things: Hi. If your TSH is 0.344, which is just slightly below the normal range, it could be: 1) normal, no thyroid disease (the "normal range EXCLUDES 5% of normal values), 2) mildly "hot" (autonomously hyperfunctioning) nodule(s), or 3) your doctor checked it while it was heading down. Recheck in 6 weeks: Stable at 0.3 or now normal; just follow. Further down, hyperthyroid. Check free T4 & T3. Thy scan ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
