Blood test says TSH rfx on abnormal to free T4 -349829 and TSH 0.035, T4 free (direct) 1.26 what does this mean ?

Blood test says TSH rfx on abnormal to free T4 -349829 and TSH 0.035, T4 free (direct) 1.26 what does this mean ?

Hard to say...: It is difficult to say without knowing the units of measurement. For example a free T4 of 1.26 ng/l is normal but 1.26 pmol/l is quite low. A TSH value of 0.035 is defintely low and may indicate an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Consultation with your doctor or an endocrinologist is recommended. ...Read more

What does medium range mean with a thyroid blood test, tsh, ft3 and ft4 is it good or bad?

My blood test shows normal tsh. Does this mean the rest of my hormones like estrogen/ Prog r most likely balanced?

My blood test shows normal tsh. Does this mean the rest of my hormones like estrogen/ Prog r most likely balanced?

Not necessarily: No, the thyroid operates within it's own system. It is true though that your entire body needs adequate amounts of thyroid hormone to function normally. Just because you have normal thyroid levels does not necessarily mean you are ovulating and having regular menses (which implies normal estrogen/progesterone levels). Most menopausal women have normal thyroid levels and yet very low estrogen/P4 ...Read more

What does the top number in BP mean? Trouble with tsh level - rapid HR after 2 a.m. bp 133/80 usually 110/78. Blood test - pituitary hormone waiting?

What does the top number in BP mean? Trouble with tsh level - rapid HR after 2 a.m. bp 133/80 usually 110/78.  Blood test - pituitary hormone waiting?

How high it gets: Systolic (top) blood pressure is a measure of the maximum pressure in the arteries during the cardiac cycle, and the diastolic of how low it gets (between heartbeats). Stop worrying about minor fluctuations like this; systolic jumps wildly in everybody. Hoping that you turn out to have a healthy thyroid -- you say yours was removed. Your physician's your best information source; we can still help. ...Read more

Just had a blood test that showed Thyroid level: T4 1.9 TSH 0.07. Have appt. with endo in 3 weeks am very worried. What does this mean? Graves disease

Hyperthyroid: It appears that your FT4 is high, and TSH low, which indicates hyperthyroidism. And it appears you have symptoms (palpitations? sweating? tremor?). Graves disease is the most likely cause. Don't worry. This can be controlled and treated, usually starting with medications (eg. methimazole, b-blocker) and then you should discuss radioactive iodine with your endocrinologist. ...Read more
