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. ...Read more
A1c5.8;was 5.7 about 5 years ago&was never told pre diabetes;non fasting glucose 104;hypothyroid tsh firstname.lastname@example.org;t4-1.6 with high normal 1.7;concerning?
Hypothyroid: 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 A1c result is not abnormal and is not pre-diabetes level. However you are hypothyroid and should consult your doctor for replacement medication. ...Read more
I have type 1 diabetes and I am also on high levels of thyroxine as my thyroid was removed. Can I expect a normal life expectancy or is it unlikely?
Depends on D control: A study reported in 2015 reported that there is a 11-13 year shorter life span in individuals with D type 1, but that study started in the 80's and since then sugar management has improved dramatically, and a new study has shown that diference reduced by 1/3 in a study with intensive control. Research is ongoing, and longevity may improve more with future Rx. Thyroid has less effect. ...Read more
Is the level of TSH of 4 is elevated ? With normal totalt3 .And T4 is it an indication of any type of hypothyroidism ?
Maybe: The TSH level of 4 may be borderline elevated depending on the lab performing the test. If thyroid levels are normal the TSH level may be a warning that the thyroid may be failing. Repeat levels over time are needed to answer the question. ...Read more
Is it considered secondary hyperthyroidism if the TSH is 6.8 and T4 is 3.1 since they are both elevated?
Why are my reve T3 (liothyronine) elevat
tsh 0.006 normal 0.45-4.500
free T4 1.93 normal 0.82-1.77
fre T3 (liothyronine) 3.9 normal 2.0-4.4

The level of T4 is 1.0 and TSH is 3.0.But i hve swelling on one side of my neck..What does it mean? If the levels are normal why do I hve swelling?
Neck swelling: There are many possibilities. First, is the swelling from the thyroid? If not, you need to get it checked out. If it is, it is possible it is a thyroid cyst, which is usually benign, and can swell/shrink. A hashimotos thyroid can swell. A thyroid ultrasound would help diagnose this. ...Read more
Tsh levels are these normal? Tsh- 3rd generation- 1.04 miu/l , then another one was 0.63 miu/l. Tsh w/free T4 rfx 1.50 miu/l. Are these normal levels?
Probably: Most labs include a reference range (or normal range) in their reports. While there can be some variation from one lab to another, almost all labs would consider TSH values between 0.5 to 3.0 to be normal. All three of your levels fall in this range, and so would be considered normal. ...Read more
My TSH is 0.06, t3-99, t4-10.9, ft3- 3.21, ft4- 1.62. One year back my TSH was >11. I am taking thyroxin 100mcg. What should I do now?
Difficult: To determine from your lab values as different labs have different normal values but it appears that your TSH is appropriately suppressed. Obviously you have a doctor ordering these tests so why not ask the obvious person. Without any clinical data it would be unwise to counsel you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I took the TSH w reflect to free T4 one year apart. Last year it was 1.56 and this year it is .75. I am symptomatic. Is the .75 ok as it was 1.56?
Normal and normal: Hi. Please know that: 1) TSH doesn't always have to stay the same, and 2) assays have variability, so that the same sample measured twice could have different results. Therefore, two normal TSH's are not concerning, and we would conclude whatever symptoms you have are not due to the thyroid (this argument assumes normal pituitary function). Good luck! ...Read more

Gas pedal & gas: Tsh is like the gas pedal. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 are the gas. The pituitary sends TSH [thyroid stimulating hormone], a chemical message to the thyroid to work faster or slower. High TSH means low thyroid. Low TSH means high thyroid. T3 (liothyronine) is active form of thyroid hormone. T4 is inactive thyroid hormone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My TSH levels are 4.57; Free T4 =1.2; T3 (liothyronine)=103. Are my Free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) levels normal? If they are normal why is my TSH elevated?
Slightly low: I see that you are on thyroid hormone. The TSH will be the best indicator of whether you need more or less medication. The ideal TSH is around 1-2, so currently you could use a slightly higher dose. The "normal range" applies to a population of people. Your individual normal range is much more narrow. If your pituitary wants your free T4 to be 1.3 or 1.4, it will put out TSH to try to do so. ...Read more
