Doctor insights on:
Tsh Level Of 140 And T4 Level Of 50
Normal: That your thyroid is probably functioning normally. Are you on estrogen which can somewhat elevate T4 level.
Trouble: Your thyroid is behaving badly and looks to be burning out. Get a scan, repeat labs with antibodies and get an ekg. See an endocrinologist.
Hypothyroid: It would be helpful to know what units those test results are. TSH is typically measured as mIU/L or micro IU/ml, with normal ranges up to 4.5. Total T4 is typically measured as micrograms/dl with normal ranges of 4.5-12, but can also be measured as nmol/L with normal ranges of 60-160. The TSH appears to be out of proportion to the T4 level, but you should be taking thyroid hormone.
Thyroid tests: 43 F My tsh level is at 1.098 and my t4 at 0.99 am I within normal range or should I be worried? ANS: Without knowing your detailed medical history and examining you I cannot help. Also need to know what are the normal values in the lab that did tests. Discuss with the team who ordered the tests.
Yes: Those are normal levels.Get a more detailed answer ›
Nothing: The TSH is more accurate. A free T4 is more accurate than a t4, which can be affected by many factors such as estrogen. Are you on any form of estrogen, bcp's etc?
My TSH level has been consistently rising from 1 to 6.43 over 3 years but my T4 level is 15. Can this be causing my hypothyroid symptoms?
Yes: Hypothyroidism can be primary - caused by a weak thyroid gland or secondary to other hormonal problems, like a pituitary problem. Or your thyroid can become dysfunctional secondary to high insulin, estrogen or cortisol. If you have functional hypothyroidism, this problem can go undetected by routine screening tests. More extensive testing can often reveal abonormalities. This is very common.See 1 more doctor answer
Hypothyroidism: This is hypothyroidism, and if these are SI units it is pretty significant, I recommend that you see you doctor for thyroid replacement as soon as possible.
My TSH level is 4.82 and T4 is. 87 and chronic hives. What do these levels mean and could the hives be related?
Possible: There are a few reports suggesting that thyroid disease may cause hives. My feeling is that this is more suggestive of an autoimmune problem which accounts for about 30% of the cases of chronic hives. You do need thyroid replacement however.,
I have swelling on right side of my neck but my free T4 level is 1.0 and TSH level is 3.0.What can I do this? Does it need to be operated?
First diagnosis: You may need further testing or fna to determine cause.
I have a TSH level of 5.69 and just found out that my T4 level is 1.1. What does this mean? If my t3+t4 is normal then what could be the problem?
Check antibodies: Ask your doctor for a test called thyroid peroxidase antibodies. If it's high or positive, then you have autoimmune thyroid disease and will need thyroid replacement in the future, if not now depending on how you feel.
If my TSH level is 5.69 and T4 is 1.1, should I stop eating candy? A lot of times I have cravings for sweets first thing in the morning. Gluten free?
Doesn't matter: Eating candies does not affect your tsh.
MY TSH level is 0.02 (Low?) and T4 is 0.66 (Low?) What does this mean. I have been on synthroid (thyroxine) 50 MCG for hypothyroid for 3 months
See below: 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, given your TSH level you are on a sufficient dose of medication. Please do keep your follow-up appointments for monitoring the treatment.
My TSH level is 4.50 and free T3 (liothyronine) is 4.30 pg and free T4 is1.36pg. Do I have sub clinical hypothrodism?
Talk to your doc: Discuss your concerns with your physician. Results of thyroid testing can vary over time. One recent study indicated that seasonal variations in TSH concentration should be considered before deciding on treatment of subclinical hypothyroidism, particularly in the areas with a wide annual temperature range. Tsh levels, can increase during the winter-spring season and decrease in summer-fall.
My TSH Level is high 9.5 but T3 (liothyronine) & T4 levels are within normal range. I am taking thyroxine 50 mcg. Do u recommend change imn dosage?
Hypothyroidism: Once you are on Levothyroxine, there is no point in checking your T3 (liothyronine) or T4 levels. You should see your doctor and probably you need to take a higher dose keeping with your TSH levels. Your TSH needs to be checked 2-4 weeks after dose adjustment. Please do not increase it on your own and talk to your doctor.
My TSH level is 4.50, t3- 3.13 pg/ml, t4- 1.42 ng/dl, doctor gave me 25 mg euthyrox once a day. Is it necessary to take this medication under this values?
Young adult on birth control and my recent T4 level was 1.0 and my TSH level was 1.75. Is this common?
Probably normal: The 1.0 is likely a "free t4" level rather than "total t4" level, and is normal. The TSH is also normal.See 1 more doctor answer
