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 TSH is borderline high, T4 may be normal especially if you are taking birth control pills. It would be prudent to discuss this with your doctor at the next visit.

18 months after thyroidectomy, my TSH is 30. my dr just increased my Armor. My throat is really achy. Is that a symptom of high tsh?
My TSH is a little low. T4 is a little high. I can't take the thyroid meds. Will a partial thyroidectomy help? (feeling very sick)
Possibly.: If you can't take thyroid meds, surgery or radioactive iodine ablation are useful. In fact radioactive iodine ablation is effective, with 40-70% of patients becoming hypothyroid after its administration. You might want to just observe since your T4 and your TSH are only slightly high and low respectively, and you might still have normal function. It would be best to see your doctor to decide. ...Read more
High TSH of 28 after complete thyroidectomy four months ago, but I don't feel any hypothyroid symptoms beyond a little weight gain. What is going on?
Had total thyroidectomy 6 months ago now all of a sudden my TSH keeps going up no matter how high they increase my synthroid (thyroxine). Absorption issues r/o?
Add Active Thyroid.: Adding active thyroid (t3) will make a difference as it is a stronger inhibitor of tsh. There is no T3 in synthroid (thyroxine). T3 can be found in nature-throid or westroid. Check antibodies (anti-tpo, anti-thyroglobulin) and rt3 (reverse T3 that is inactive). These can be improved and/or corrected with higher does of t3. You may to also add t3sr from compound pharmacy, too. Take 2-3x daily as directed. ...Read more
I had a total thyroidectomy (thyroid papilliary cancer) for 17 years and with a high level of TSH result. And stop taking my euthyrox medicine?
Need Thyroid hormone: You need thyroid hormone replacement as you do not have thyroid gland and will need thyroid hormone all your life. Since you stop your euthrox your TSH is high. You need to follow your doctors advice and go back on the thyroid hormone with adjustment of dose to bring TSH to normal level. ...Read more
I never had high blood pressure before thyroidectomy andits treatment with medicines. My TSH levels were 0.50 last week and yesterday, my blood pressure went to 183/97.What should I do?
I was prescribed 125 mg levothyroxine by a ER dr. With a Tsh Level of 0.40 does that seem too high? (Total thyroidectomy w/parathyroid removal 11mos)
Get 2nd opinion: If the lab studies given are correct you should not need any supplemental thyroid therapy. If you have a low TSH it generally means that your thyroid is functioning at a high level. Factors to consider are why you had the thyroid removed, have you been on previous meds and has a T4, T3, (liothyronine) and Free Thyroxine been done. Have you been having any symptoms, if not, seek a second opinion before starting. ...Read more
Total thyroidectomy 4 mo ago. High TSH & t4, low t3 (liothyronine). Feeling very hypo. Increases in levothyroxine not helping symptoms. Sliding downhill fast! Help!
Something does not sound right.
A high TSH with a high T4 is very uncommon.
It is possible, but unlikely that your pituitary gland is producing too much TSH.
You need to see your thyroid surgeon or your regular doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
Had total thyroidectomy 10 years ago. Currently 8 weeks pregnant, taking synthroid (thyroxine) 125mcg. Very low TSH 0.01 and high free T4 at 26 (normal 12-22).?
Way off: That dose of thyroid needs to be reduced ASAP. Please consult with your doctor right away. I'm guessing they're doing that already if they received those test results. ...Read more

My TSH is low, my T3 (liothyronine) and T4 is high. I don't have graves disease or thyroiditis. My dr. Suggested a partial thyroidectomy to correct this. Is that ok?
Been having elevated BP since total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago. Tsh was 17 and on Synthroid (thyroxine) 125. Will BP fluctuate until hormone levels stable?
Hyperthyroid 5 years with toxic nodule pre hemi thyroidectomy supressed TSH elevated T4 T3 (liothyronine) 10 days post op TSH supressed low T4 T3 (liothyronine) am I hyper or hypo?
Difficult to answer: Since you're on ptu (propylthiouracil) which inhibits thyroid function and hormone production. Would have to know when and how much ptu (propylthiouracil) you've been taking and serial lab values to determine the answer. If your TSH is still suppressed, you're probably still hyperthyroid, but more or longer therapy w/ptu (propylthiouracil) may help. Methimazole may be safer than put. Think about radio iodine therapy w/your doctor. ...Read more
Low thyroid: A high TSH almost always means that there is too little thyroid hormone in the blood. It would not usually cause decreased kidney function as suggested by a low egfr (estimated glomerular filtration rate) or breakdown of red blood cells (hemolysis). The hemolysis and decreased kidney function might be related however. Your situation is and complex and potentially serious - see your doctor! ...Read more
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, If you are using conventional units for TSH, this level indicates severe deficiency of thyroid function. See this site for more info.

Will dielatin 300mg a day make TSH high in blood work and if so why thay keep giving more and more pills?
Faster breakdown: Dilantin, like many anti-seizure meds, can speed up certain enzymes in the liver that metabolize, or break down thyroid hormone into inactive chemicals. Since more thyroid hormone is broken down on a daily basis, more must be put into the bloodstream to keep levels up. The thyroid can usually do this naturally, but if someone is already needed pills, a stronger pill may be needed w/ dilantin. ...Read more
Cholesterol 238mg/dL, HDL 62mg/dL, LDL 150mg/dL, ALT 99U/L, AST 42U/L and TSH high could this be high from my TSH levels?
Hypothyroidism??: How high is TSH? Hypothyroidism is associated with hyperlipidemia. Do you know the result of T3 (liothyronine) & T4? . How mush do you weight? Obesity, non-alcoholic Fatty liver and NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis)) can also give similar blood test. See a DOC for complete evaluation and discussion of your test result ...Read more
Repeat the labs: Hi. In all likelihood, it's a lab error or some trivial explanation. Repeat the labs to see if the lab profile is reproducible. Among the very rare possibilities that it's real would be thyroid hormone resistance, a condition wherein a mutation in a subunit of the thyroid hormone receptor is present (these people are euthyroid), or a pituitary adenoma that makes thyroid hormone (these are hyperthy ...Read more

Thyroid us 1.2cm by 0.9 nodule hypoechoic. Had previous in June 2014 saw 3 nodules 8mm and all are stable the large one is new. Tsh high 8.1. Freaking?
Thyroid nodules: Most nodules are benign, especially if multiple. Biopsy by needle aspiration may be useful for larger nodules, though recently the threshold for biopsy was lowered to just over 1 cm. Early detection of significant lesions is useful, but most cancers at young age are highly curable even if nodes involved. ...Read more
T3 (liothyronine) & T4 mormal, but TSH high 24.....Can be cureable.....Can effect married life...?
May be nothing: Thyroid hormone production and control are complex. If your T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are normal but your TSH is slightly high, it may be nothing at all. Talk with your doctor and ask about consulting with an endocrinologist if this worries you. It is unlikely this will affect your social life. ...Read more
