What Does Tsh 3rd Generation Mean
Low thyroid: 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. Having said that, The level is just above the level that is considered indicative of thyroid deficiency. Did you also have free T4 test done, if so what was the result?

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Probably not, no. : ALT of 47.9 is so close to the ULN, that there doesn't seem to be reason to get alarmed. Medication ASAP is unlikely to be indicated. The best thing to do is contact the doc who ordered the test and ask why it was ordered? Were you having any sxs? Any other abnormal labs/tests/findings? Next steps may include repeating the test, picture tests of the abdomen/liver, or stopping a current med. :) ...Read more
What does it mean if my Chromogranin test level was below the normal range? Does that indicate anything? I know an elevated level is Carcinoid but what about low? CgA= 1.1 APTT=29 INR= 1.0
CgA normal: CgA is a screening test for certain types of cancer (mostly those involving the endocrine (hormone) system. Any value below 76 ng/ml is simply "normal." Your APTT of 29 and INR of 1.0, which are tests of your blood clotting system, are also normal. If you have persistent or debilitating symptoms of any kind, you need to continue to follow up with your doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
