What Does It Mean When T3 Levels Are High For Thyroid
I got my test results back from my obgyn stating that my T3 and T4 levels are normal but I have high thyroid Antibodys so what does that mean could be?
See below: 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.

If my tsh low, t3 (liothyronine) and t4 is normal, is it hypo or hyper thyroidism? Should I take iodine? Ultra sound is normal, without pathology.

What does it mean if most of my thyroid levels are in the low normal range and my T3 (liothyronine) is low?
What causes an elevated reverse T3 (liothyronine) level but the other thyroid levels are normal thyroid??? My reverse t3 (liothyronine) was 35
Many causes: First, I am impressed your doctor tested reverse T3 as few doctors ever check it. There are many possible causes of increased reverse T3 including high cortisol (from chronic stress, emotional or physical), inflammatory conditions, injuries and infections like Lyme disease (which is surprisingly common and often undiagnosed).

My doctor just called and told me my thyroid is overative and the T3 (liothyronine) is twice has high and T4 is normal. And that was it. What does it mean? Should I change something? how do I get it back to normal?
T3 (liothyronine) and T4:
1: If you don't have symptoms please relax for now.
2: If your TSH was not measured it should be.
3: Your doctor should have sent you to the Radiology department for careful examination of your thyroid gland. If that did not happen ask for a referral to an Endocrinologist. ...Read more

I did a thyroid test and it showed that my free T3 (liothyronine) is high...While my free T4 and TSH is normal. What does it mean to get a high t3 (liothyronine)?

TSH high (15) free T4 high (4.2) but free T3 low (2.1). 41 yrs old, has partial thyroid removal at 14. Hashimoto. Been on 300 mg of generic synthroid for 20 years. What does this mean?
Thyroid or pituitary: Not clear since both TSH and free T-4 are high. No data on T-4 Hashimoto can effect the thyroid tests either over acive and underactive and synthroid can effect them and raise them. Was thyroid removed because there was a tumor or was it overactive or underactive. A visit to an endocrinologist is in your future ...Read more

I am having extreme fatigue and i did blood test and my TSH level was high (8.6) ! but thyroid hormones are normal (t3 (liothyronine) T4 ) ! what is causing fatigue?
Further testing: The fatigue may be still be related to the thyroid. You should have a full thyroid panel which would include total and free T4 and t3, (liothyronine) rt3 and fti as well as thyroid autoantibodies. There can be defects in conversion from inactive to active hormone or an autoimmune process may be active. If that is the case treatment may include some hormone replacement but also addressing the immune system. ...Read more

C.L.I.A method. T3-83ng/dl,T4-8.3ug/dl,TSH-8.07uIU/ml. T3&T4 are normal but TSH level elevated.is it thyroid? Shall i take medicine or natural diet?
Elevated TSH: The elevated TSH suggests your thyroid is in the process of failing, probably from Hashimotos thyroiditis, which is autoimmune. If you feel well, you need not take anything now, but your thyroid will likely fail, and you will need to take levothyroxine. This could happen in 3 months or could take years. Many doctors would start meds now. Diet/herbs/iodine/vitamins will not help. ...Read more
My TSH level was 6.5 on my tests but my other thyroid tests came normal (t3 (liothyronine) and T4 i believe) what does this mean? And what could be causing this?
See below: T3 (liothyronine) and T4 can be normal if your protein level is high. These are total T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels. Both hormones are transported on proteins. So, if your TSH is high, your doctor should be running a free T4 (not protein bound) to confirm that your thyroid level really is low. Otherwise, there are a few other reasons just the TSH can be high. ...Read more
My dear friend needs answers that her doctor doesn't have. She has high T3 but doesn't have a thyroid. Anything else in the body that makes T3?
Only thyroid tissue: There are no other organs in the human body that produce thyroxine, so unless your friend is taking a thyroxine containing supplement or prescription thyroid medication, she should not have high T3. It is possible that she was told she doesn't have a thyroid gland on ultrasound or after surgery, but some thyroid tissue remains. Your friend should consult an endocrinologist to clarify things. ...Read more

What does it mean to have a total T3 (liothyronine) and reverse T3 (liothyronine) in thyroid diagnosis?
Opposites: T3 (liothyronine) is the more active thyroid hormone. Reverse T3 (liothyronine) is not really functional. When someone is very sick or loses too much weight, the body will sometimes divert thyroid hormone production into an inactive state in an effort to turn metabolism down to conserve energy. That would be the reverse t3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
Tell us TSH: Hi. Not enough information. Is TSH below normal? That's VERY important to know. T4 and T3 (liothyronine) can be elevated due to elevated thyroxine binding globulin (TBG) with completely normal thyroid function. It's better to measure free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) than T4 and T3 (liothyronine) per se. So I can't tell you if anything is even abnormal without more information. ...Read more
My T3 (liothyronine) thyroid is 1.75,
Which came out as abnormal on the blood test. What does this mean? Should i be worried? Any suggestions? TY!!
Not sure why a t3 (liothyronine)...: was tested--definitely not a standard screening test. if your tsh is normal there's nothing to worry about. you should speak to your doctor who ordered the test to review the additional laboratory data and answer your questions. ...Read more
Normal: These are all normal.Get a more detailed answer ›
Check free T4: The most common cause for having a high total T4 and T3 (liothyronine) level, with a normal tsh, is being on a birth control pill. Being on a birth control pill raises binding proteins that affect thyroid levels, but the biologically active thyroid level remains normal. This is best measured by a free T4 level. ...Read more
