What Does Dr Saima Farghani Think The Correct Tsh Level Is Nj
My TSH level was 5.82 when I went to doc and I was put on Synthroid (thyroxine) 50 mcg. Is this the correct dosage? My TSH is now 3.41 is that normal? T3t4 r norm
Kind of...: There remains some debate about what "normal" really is for the tsh. Years ago the "normal" was somewhere between 0.5 and 5.5. I don't think anyone thinks 5 normal now. Most labs have brought the top end to about 4.5. I now use 3.5 as top end of normal but if i already have someone on meds i'll try to get them somewhere between 1 and 2ish, especially if they continue to have "thyroid" symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I usually start to take notice when someone's TSH is >2.5. See http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003684.Htm. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
