My TSH 3rd generation test came back at 2.036. The range is 0.340-5.600uiu/m. The test said high sensitive 3rd generation tsh. What does this mean?
Not a whole lot!:
An elevated TSH is the main criteria most docs use to diagnose hypothyroidism. While most docs feel it is not abnormal unless above 5.6 or so, many endocrinologists feel anything above 3 is abnormal, and some even feel a level above 2 could indicate problems- see http://abt. Cm/1562fwq
actually, many with a totally normal TSH may still have thyroid problems- see http://bit. Ly/18atkro & comment:. ...Read more
My TSH 3rd generation test is 7.55uiu/ml, ft3 and ft4 is normal what does mean? What is a treatment for this?
U R hypothyroid: Hi. Those labs demonstrate you have subclinical hypothyroidism: your thyroid is failing, but with a little more "push" from the pituitary (elevated TSH), it's still putting out normal T4 and T3 (liothyronine) amounts. Your TPO &/or thyroglobulin autoantibodies are probably elevated - Hashimoto's. I would treat you. No sense waiting until it's over to start. Treatment is cheap, easy, & perfect. Good luck! ...Read more
TSH W REFLEX FREE T4 TSH, 3RD GENERATION (0.40-4.00) uIU/ML My results are 1.10 I had this test taken. Can you explain what the results mean?
Normal, but...: THIS IS A NORMAL THYROID SCREENING TESTS. There are rare diseases thyroid that can happen with an normal normal TSH, but you would have symptoms of thyroid disease or other evidence of central hypothyroidism or thyroiditis in a "euthyroid phase, " which would be rare and require much more history. If there is ongoing concern see an endocrinologist. IF YOU GENERALLY FEEL WELL GREAT, IT IS NORMAL! ...Read more
Hypothyroid: Your thyroid is not producing enough thyroid hormone, so your brain is producing extra TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) to tell the thyroid to produce more thyroid hormone. You need to be placed on Synthroid (thyroxine) to replace your hormone and have your TSH rechecked in 6-8 weeks to see if the dosage is correct. This will likely be a lifelong treatment. ...Read more
My tsh 3rd generation test results are 2.137 uIU/ml, I have a series of symptoms that bothers me a lot for 3 yrs by now, should I need more tests?
Not thyroid: The TSH is the most sensitive test for detecting either overactive or underactive thyroid problems. Your TSH is normal, and so it is very unlikely that you have a thyroid disorder causing your symptoms. ...Read more
Yes: Your TSH level is higher than normal and suggests thyroid deficiency. Please consult with your doctor to see if thyroid supplementation is warranted. ...Read more
Not a problem: Although a TSH of 0.46 is slightly below the normal range, I have never seen a patient with a similar TSH who needed any treatment. Most likely your T4 level is fine and I would view the TSH as a normal variation which has no significance for your health. ...Read more
Normal: That's typically normal. If you are pregnant we recommend a tsh < 2.5. Otherwise its normal ...Read more
Hypothyroid: A high TSH is consistent with primary hypothyroidism. You should have a free T4 level done. Lh is unrelated to thyroid. A low level could be related to medications, such as an oral contraceptive or other estrogen usage (or testosterone in a male). If your periods are regular, it is likely a lab error. ...Read more

My TSH 3rd generation level came back at 9.490. MY T4 was normal and T3 (liothyronine) was low. Taking 200 mcg. What do these numbers mean?
Still hypothyroid: Not sure how long u have been on thyroid replacement, but if been on 200mcg daily over 6-8 weeks, likely require increase dose. If u have just had u'r medication adjusted the. Repeat TSH usually done in 6 wks; the numbers show that u'r body is still in hypothyroid state and that u'r thyroid gland is making less and less hormone or the T4 is not being converted to T3, (liothyronine) so thyroid medicine needed ...Read more
My t4 is 5.80 my T3 (liothyronine) uptake is 37.8 my FT4 INDEX is 2.2 my tsh 3rd generation is 97.352 I was put on meds 75mcg I need to know what this means help?
Both the T3 (liothyronine) uptake and FT4 Index are indirect evaluations of thyroid hormone levels.
Briefly, the total T4 is a reservoir for active hormone (T3 (liothyronine)). If the body senses low T4 or T3 (liothyronine), then it secretes TSH to tell the thyroid gland to make more hormone.
Your TSH being 97 (normal ...Read more
I am on levothyroxin of 50 mg, in my last test my 3rd generation TSH went down to. 53, my doc raised dose to 100 mg I am confused recently I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and I am taking levothyroxin of 50 mg but in my last test my 3rd generatio
You should be confused so am i.
If you were on the 50 microgram (not milligram) dose for a good 6-8 weeks and you had a TSH of 0.53 on that dose, that dose of levothyroxine is just right for you.
You will be on too much if you go to 100 mcg.
You might do better consulting with an endocrinologist. ...Read more

Is FT4 correct?: Your TSH appears normal. Did you have a typp with the ft4, as a value of 15 is an order of magnitude too high. 1.5 would be normal. Another possibility is that the 15 is a T4 not a ft4. Either way, it's hard to tell but probably normal. Check w/your doctor. ...Read more

General health: Your TSH may be a bit high and if so, you'll be worked up for possible thyroid disease. A hemoglobin of 12 is fine for a young woman. These are unrelated to your acne. Especially if you have scarring, you need to address your acne as a chronic skin disease that can be managed. Insist on full explanations and a trial of treatment that may clear you. ...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 more
