My tsh level is 178 - is this dangerously high. T4 is 7.9 I believe?

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. ...Read more

Can a high TSH level but normal T4 cause hypothyroid symptoms or not?

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. ...Read more

My TSH level is 4.82 and T4 is. 87 and chronic hives. What do these levels mean and could the hives be related?

Tsh levels, can increase during the winter-spring season and decrease in summer-fall. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

This gives around 85-90% chance in one year, though many young women conceive much quicker. Your TSH is definitely too high and should be adjusted; this does not permit us to tell you how kong it will take. Good luck. ...Read more
