What Does Dr Saima Farghani Think The Correct Tsh Level Is Nj
In my repaort result TSH is 0.25 &also mentioned associated diagnosed :-hypothyroidism 244.9 what does it mean? I m confused what is my thyroid level.
Diagnostic code: "244.9 - hypothyroidism" is the diagnosis code used to justify ; bill for the test. This just means you have been diagnosed as having a low thyroid. Your recent TSH level is fairly low, implying that your low thyroid levels are being treated successfully by the l-thyroxine. It's confusing, but a low TSH = hyperthyroidism ; a high TSH = hypothyroidism. So a TSH drop from 27 to .25 is good! ...Read more

Aged 50.her TSH marginally raised with normalT3&T4.she was asked to get FreeT3& FreeT4.What is the significance of freeT3&FreeT4in this case?
Thyroid functions: Free T4 and Free T3 (liothyronine) are true measures of how much available tetra-iodothyronine, and tri-iodothyronine are available, unbound to reach their target tissues. T3 (liothyronine), and T4 levels measure both the bound hormone and the free hormones and are less accurate. They can be affected by other medications, such as birth control pills and antibiotics, or over the counter medications. ...Read more
If i don't have graves' disease and my thyroid uptake scan is as follows: range-5% to 30% my readings- 64%, 70%, 65%. What is my best course?
Hyperactive thyroid: Thyroid uptake in range of 64% to 70% usually means overactive thyroid. Graves disease or hyperthyroidism is one cause. An overactive thyroid nodule, thyroiditis, and toxic multi nodular goiter can be other causes. An adenoma of the pituitary gland can sometimes stimulate overproduction of thyroid hormone. Clinical examination, nuclear and/or ultrasound imaging, and various blood tests can help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My gad-65 antibody level is >1:4800 rather than the u/ml measurement i see quoted online. How do I convert this number and what does it mean?
Hard to convert: The >1:4800 means they can dilute the serum from your blood more 4800 times and still detect the antibody in their test. Because of differences in how each lab performs the dilutions, runs the tests, and defines a "unit per ml", there isn't a good way to directly convert the two. However, the >1:4800 describes a very large amount of the antibody in your system. See your doctor for more info. ...Read more

My blood test showed a vitamin d level of 17. The doc prescribed ergocalcitrol 50000 iu. Is this low level common? How can I prevent it in the future?
Yes. Get sensible sun: Low vitamin d concentrations such as those described are very common in the us population. They are especially common in persons who are homebound, drink little vitamin d fortified milk, and or have darker skin color. The best way to prevent low vitamin d is to take a multivitamin, drink vitamin d fortified milk, and to get 10 to 15 minutes of sensible sun exposure daily during the summer months. This means exposing at least your arms and legs 10 to 15 minutes prior to putting on sunscreen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In my repaort result TSH is 0.25 and also mentioned associated diagnosed :-hypothyroidism 244.9 what does it mean? I m confused what is goin on?
Hypothyroidism: O.25 mlu/l TSH level is when you are on 75 microgram of levothyroxine. Previously it was 27.9mlu/l when hypothyroidism was diagnosed and started with 100 mcg. Your doctor has to adjust dose of levothyroxine till your TSH is between0.5to2.0. The other number 244.9 is computer code for hypothyroidism and not TSH value. Hope it clears up the confusion. Thanks. ...Read more
