Underactive Thyroid Tsh Range
Hi Is there a medicine to bring TSH in control which is at 7.14. T3 and T4 are in range. Does it mean underactive thyroid. Thanks?
Yes: I answered the question a few minutes ago. Your guess is right, it mean impending hypothyroidism.
Does TSH 4, 83 mean hypothirodism (underactive thyroid) and ft4 - is 9 (does it also mean underactive thyiroid)?
It depends/can mean,: This can mean under active thyroid depending on the ranges and whether or not there're symptoms of hypothyroidism, like fatigue, sensitivity to cold, and thinning of hair. The TSH is high normal to high at 4.83 if the upper limit is 5.0 or 3.0 respectively, while the free T4 is low normal if the units of measurement are pool/l. You've already got hypothyroidism so this would help reinforce it.
I have underactive thyroid! Have tried every diet there is and still can not lose weight despite normal TSH levels! Any suggestions, ?
Euthyroid: If TSH is normal you are now euthyroid. However there is a range of nl. It may help to be at the lower end of the range than the higher. It takes time for the body to adjust and you need to change your eating habits and increase exercise long term to get to lose weight.See 1 more doctor answer
What does a normal TSH but low free T4 level mean? Can you have an underactive thyroid with a low T4 alone? Tsh 2.45 T4 7
Thyroid function: When TSH is normal and T4 is low this is called subclinical hypothyroidism. It is not treated unless if you have symptoms. Also if TSH > 10 some would start treatment. Hope that helps answer your question.
Can you treat underactive thyroid through diet (vs rx or to delay rx)? My TSH was 5.9 mlU/L. At what point do you consider treatment?
No: If you have Hypothyroidism you will need supplemental thyroid. Will need to know FT4 also to make the diagnosis
Hi, I have an underactive thyroid. I'm on 75mg but still don't feel right. My TSH level is 47 but my doctor won't increase it. What level should it be?
2-3: I am going to assume you are taking 75 micrograms and not milligrams of thyroid medication as milligrams would be way too high. Most common thyroid medications are only in the form of t4, the inactive form of the hormone. Many people are unable to convert the T4 into the active form of the hormone - T3 (liothyronine) and need to also be on t3 (liothyronine). You should ask your doctor about adding T3 (liothyronine) to your regimen.See 1 more doctor answer

Significant Medical: You need a very good medical partner. Your results show you have significant risk to your heart and brain and arteries. Don't wait for us online but get good advice and change your life as soon as you can.
Pulse 120-130. Had underactive thyroid 3 yrs, now massively over active (t3 (liothyronine) 37.8, TSH 0.03) 3 weeks since last test (t3 (liothyronine) was 18.7).
Dose adjustment: Please see your doctor to adjust the dose of your medication. You do seem to have hyperthyroid state and would benefit form reducing the dose of your thyroid medication, however, I urge you to consult your doctor rather than adjusting the dose by yourself.
I think I may have amyloidosis from my underactive thyroid but its just narely under the range should I get tested for amyloidosis?
Vitamin4 low thyroid: I am not aware of any specific effect on vitamin supplements to low thyroid. If your thyroid is low, which can be confirmed by lab tests, then simple thyroid supplement is the appropriate treatment.
Body temperature 36.3 I'm feeling cold it'd 18 degrees c outside. Is this underactive thyroid? Had thyroid test 3 months ago. Results negative
Hypothyroid: If thyroid tests are normal, your intolerance to cold is not related to an thyroid disorder.
Not clear: There are studies that show a correlation between vitamin d levels and thyroid disease but correlation does not imply causation. In other words, it isn't clear there is a cause and effect relationship. It's good to keep your vitamin d level above 20, but low levels are may be indicative of a problem, not a cause of it.
Many: Some common symptoms are: fatigue, sensitive to cold, dry skin, constipation, hoarse voice, weight gain, high cholesterol, muscle ache/weakness, joint pain, heavy periods, brittle nails/hair, depression. Many other conditions can share these symptoms so if you suspect it, get a thyroid blood test.
Tests and Symptoms: Symptoms of low thyroid function are commonly fatigue, weight gain, heavy periods (females), dry skin, hair thinning and loss, depression and constipation. Tsh, free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 (if TSH is borderline) as well as some other older tests like morning baseline temperature and tendon reflex testing can all detect low thyroid function.See 1 more doctor answer
