Tsh Level 33
My TSH level is 33.02 and serum free T4 is 9.6 my doctor has upped my tablets. What should we be aiming for?
Normal range: It varies slightly from lab to lab but normal TSH is usually from 0.5 to 5.5 and normal free T4 is 0.7 to 2.0. Good luck and I hope your next labs are in normal range.
My sister 33 yrs pregnant first time, 8 weeks, TSH level was 0.01. What is normal ft4/ft3. Is there any danger to baby?
TSH is often: Low during first trimester and may be totally normal. Needs to be followed throughout the rest of the pregnancy. Have her check w/her doctor and even an endocrinologist if necessary.
Hi I am 33 yrs having type-1 diabetes hba1c - 6.7 with TSH level 5.95. Also had nail in right leg since 2004 diabetes \u0026 thyroid is my hereditar?
I'm not: Sure what your question is, but your TSH that is slightly elevated indicates your thyroid is beginning to fail. There is variable opinion on when to begin treatment with brand name T4 replacement, but almost certainly the problem will continue to worsen (and never correct itself) so why not begin the lifelong replacement now? Talk w/your doctor.
TSH: Depending on your symptoms, other thyroid labs, and whether you're being treated for a thyroid problem, normal TSH range is 0.4 - 4.0 miu/l (milli-international units per liter). If being treated the range is usually tighter, between 0.5 and 2.0 miu/l. Treatment decisions need more data than TSH alone, though.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
A little: It depends on the lab but that is just a bit elevated. Generally a lab test called free T4 is done when this borderline. If the free t 4 is low that would confirm that you are hypothyroid. When the numbers are borderline often down the road they will become frankly abnormal. If there are symptoms such as fatigue and weight gain then I would be more inclined to treat sooner then later.See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly hypothyroid: Normal range of TSH levels can vary with different laboratories. In published levels the usual high level is 4.2 this can be reflection of hypothyroidism. Some early symptoms include because many of the early warnings, like weight gain and fatigue. Normal TSH range is 0.4-4.2 mu/l.See 1 more doctor answer
No: TSH of 4 is within normal limits. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
TSH level: No, the TSH level you mention does not suggest need for treatment. Normal values of TSH can vary according to the lab, but what you mention would be within the range of normal, or very nearly so, for every lab I have ever had experience with. Consider yearly testing going forward as subclinical hypothyroidism is more common in women of a certain age.See 1 more doctor answer
Little hypothyroid.: That TSH value is a bit high, which would suggest that your thyroid may be a bit slow. If you're not having symptoms then it may be worth just monitoring, but if you're having relevant symptoms then this should be addressed and treated.See 1 more doctor answer
Many possible: Reasons. Starting or stopping a high-fiber diet; calcium or iron supplements; eating too many soy products, brussels sprouts, rutabaga, turnips, kohlrabi, radishes, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale; change of seasons; hormonal fluctuations especially menopause; pregnancy; certain herbs/supplements, prescription drugs; stress or illness; progression of latent thyroid disease.
TSH 320: This value is very high. It means that your thyroid gland is seriously underactive. There are potentially serious consequences of underactive thyroid gland. Evaluation and correction is essential. It takes considerable time. I hope you are receiving care and are already on thyroid hormone replacement therapy.See 1 more doctor answer
