Goes up: Tsh increases when you are hypothyroid. If enough thyroid tissue is removed to make you hypothyroid, the TSH should increase. ...Read more
It Goes Up: Those who have thyroidectomies need to take thyroid hormone replacement, levothyroxine. Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) comes from the pituitary and increases when thyroid hormones are below normal. Elevation in TSH often indicates hypothyroidism. Adequate levothyroxine replacement keeps the TSH level normal. ...Read more
What does the following mean: Heterogeneous nodular of the thyroid gland with increased vascularity. As well as low T4 and TSH levels?
Plan: You have to discuss all this result with doctor, who knows your history, symptoms and all medical problems. Most likely you need the treatment for thyroid dysfunction, what depend heavily on numbers in blood work. ...Read more

After 2months of having my thyroid removed TSH level 40, taking t4175mg, getting fat.Shall i try to combine t4&t3, in which dosages?
Need higher dose: The high TSH shows that your thyroid level is still low. 175 mcg of T4 is a relatively high dose. Your are probably not absorbing the medication correctly. You must be sure to take it on an empty stomach, wait at least 40 min before eating, do not take it with any supplements or other meds. You should be on a brand-name thyroid, such as synthroid (thyroxine) or tirosint, not generic. ...Read more
I have a TSH level of 22.38 and my T4 is 6.1 and Free T4 is 1.7. I had a portion of my thyroid removed last year during a parathyroid tumor removal. ?
That seems like a very high number and the pituitary gland must be seen by xray to make sure it is of normal size.
Has your parathyroid gland been checked recently?
Please let me know what happens. ...Read more
What's the TSH level to maintain for 57+ female with Hypothyroidism, whose one & half of thyroid glands were removed for goiter surgery 15+ yr back ?
Don't base on TSH:
I believe it is a mistake to base dosage on TSH alone; TSH is a surprisingly poor marker for tissue thyroid levels in many common conditions; one should assess Free T3 (liothyronine) and Free T4 and also take how the patient is feeling into account. Here are good articles about how 11 renowned specialists optimize thyroid hormone levels:

Becomes elevated: After removing the thyroid, thyroid levels become low. This causes the pituitary gland to put out TSH as it is trying to get your thyroid to make more thyroid hormone. Since you have no thyroid, the TSH will go higher and higher unless you take thyroid hormone to maintain a normal level. ...Read more
How much cAn tsh fluctuate with in the range with normal thyroid gland? Please answer with maximum value and minimum value before/after inflamation?
Inflammation thyroid: Inflammation? What is meant by this? A normal person's TSH can vary within the normal range. There can be assay variation in addition to biologic variation. A serious illness or chronic inflammation can cause "euthyroid sick syndrome" where TSH and T4 decrease, and then increase on recovery from the illness. During recovery, TSH can be above the normal range. ...Read more
What is the optimal TSH for a 61 year old female who 16 years ago operated thyroid gland due to hurthle cell ca. ? My TSH during all these 16 years (after the operation) was 0, 6 - 0, 4 . But two months ago I changed the original swiss medicine eltr
As you know, TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) is secreted by your pituitary gland to stimulate the synthesis and release of thyroid hormones from your thyroid gland (which has been removed, in your case). Since TSH can also stimulate the growth of thyroid cancer cells, one goal of therapy for thyroid cancer patients is to suppress their TSH to the lowest possible level while keeping their triiodothyronine level (t3) within a normal range. (many physicians strive for a TSH less than 0.1 as long as the patient's T3 (liothyronine) doesn't climb higher than normal). This usually requires a levothyroxine dose between 2.2 and 2.8 mcg per kg of body weight (about 170 to 220 mcg for a 172 lb individual).
I hope that helps! ...Read more
Thyroid gland is increased in vascularity suggestive of underlying thyroiditis.....
Tsh is normal?
Happens regularly: This picture is encountered relatively often. Think of it as if the thyroid is inflamed but still has enough reserve to produce adequate hormone. It can be seen in conditions like subclinical thyroiditis or in hashimoto's disease, after the thyroid is "burnt out" and doesn't produce elevated hormone, but before the hormone levels become low. See an endocrinologist for more information. ...Read more

Why TSH is higher at morning? Is it because thyroid gland is less responsive when you wake up? Does that mean T4 and T3 (liothyronine) gets also higher at morning?
Sorry, but I don't fully understand your question.
TSH, T4, and T3 (liothyronine) should always be measured on the same blood draw.
TSH is higher if the thyroid is not working properly and a high T4 and/or T3 (liothyronine) would decrease TSH levels. ...Read more
I hav no thyroid gland; my TSH was 0.01 & I was taking 150 mcg a.m. Now taking 1/2 tab of 112 mcg. Can you hav rapid hrt rate if not enough Synthroid (thyroxine)?
No: Rapid heart rate may be a symptom of being on TOO MUCH thyroid hormone but not too little. From your test results, a whole 150 mcg tablet was too much but cutting the dose to 56 mcg (1/2 of a 122 mcg tablet) may be too big a reduction. You might want to consult with an endocrinologist to help adjust your dosage. ...Read more
Lump in my right throat. TSH, T4 normal, UTZ results: slightly enlarged right thyroid gland with complex cystic & small nodules. Should I be worried?
More No than Yes: The thyroid is a cystic gland controlled by hypothalamus (TSH) via anterior pituitary (TRF) to manufacture & secrete T3+T4. If thyroid cysts coalesce or locally enlarge, then cysts large enough to see via current US technology can be seen. This still indicates something not optimal but it is solid nodules which are far more worrisome &, though less frequent, far more likely to be thyroid cancer. ...Read more

Hyperthyroidism: There are several causes of hyperthyroidism, the most common of which are Graves disease and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Given the secondary impacts on other organs, the diagnosis needs to be clarified and determined as early as possible so treatment can begin. Both of these causes could be associated with the symptoms you describe. Get your further testing done and get treatment going. ...Read more
My TSH level came back 0.010. Does this mean my adrenal gland isnt working??? I've been on hydrocortisone for almost a year. Initially wasn't working but improved with hydrocortisone. Could my chronic pancreatitis affect the adrenal gland?
TSH and pancreas: Have no direct relationship with the adrenal glands! TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland in the brain to stimulate the thyroid gland to produce its hormones, your number is low though, meaning that your thyroid may be producing more hormones. Kindly discuss the results and your condition with your endocrinologist, wish you wellness ...Read more
TSH levels vary from one lab to another. You are probably normal with TSH.
More important, when TSH is measured serum T4 and T3 (liothyronine) should also be measured. The three are linked to each other and surely the doctor must explain this to you.
If not satisfied find a better doctor. ...Read more

See your doctor soon: there may be other tests that may have to be run to interpret your TSH level better. Speak to your pediatrician about it first & make sure that s/he thinks you need further breakdown of the individual thyroid levels of T3, (liothyronine)T4, rT3 or possible TRH or not. As long as it's treated appropriately, you should be okay! Your pediatrician might refer you to a peds endocronologist for further management. ...Read more
