Production of antidiuretic (adh), thyroxine and t3, (liothyronine) parathyroid (pth), hormones of the adrenal cortex and the pancreas, can you tell me about this?

Production of antidiuretic (adh), thyroxine and t3, (liothyronine) parathyroid (pth), hormones of the adrenal cortex and the pancreas, can you tell me about this?

Complex: Please ask a specific question. This is way too complex and vague to answer. If you want to know about all these hormones, consider an Endocrinology fellowship at a major teaching hospital. Of course, before that, you will need a BS, an MD, and a 3 yr Internal Medicine residency. ...Read more

Only a little amount of hormone is required to alter cell metabolism. In essence, it is a chemical messenger that transports a signal from ...Read more

Is a natural hormone like "armour" better to  use than sythetics like levoxyl (thyroxine) or synthroid?

Thyroid: It depends on the individual. Armour thyroid is different from the other two because it has T3 (liothyronine) and T4 in a 1:4 ratio. The other 2 only have t4. Your prescriber will look at your blood test and determine which medicine based on your levels are a best fit. ...Read more

Is thyroid hormone the same as thyroxine?

Is thyroid hormone the same as thyroxine?

Thyroxine is a type: The thyroid gland secretes two types of hormones: thyroxine (t4) and triiodothyronine (t3), but it produces T4 at much higher levels than t3. When treating thyroid hormone deficiency, your physician may prescribe levothyroxine (which is oral tablet of t4), liothyronine (oral formulation of t3), or combinations of such, or even dessicated (dried) pig thyroid as replacement therapy. ...Read more

My Synthroid (thyroxine) level was too high and i became a bit hyperthyroid. I am nursing, should I be concerned about extra hormone passing to my baby?

My Synthroid (thyroxine) level was too high and i became a bit hyperthyroid.  I am nursing, should I be concerned about extra hormone passing to my baby?

Should be ok: Levothyroxine is excreted into human milk in small amounts. Levothyroxine, in replacement doses, is not expected to cause adverse effects in the nursing infant. Your doctor will adjust your dose to bring it into the normal range. ...Read more

Been having elevated BP since total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago. Tsh was 17 and on Synthroid (thyroxine) 125. Will BP fluctuate until hormone levels stable?

Been having elevated BP since total thyroidectomy 3 weeks ago. Tsh was 17 and on Synthroid (thyroxine) 125. Will BP fluctuate until hormone levels stable?

Blood pressure: Problems are not caused by an underactive thyroid. Have your doctor look for other causes and treatments. Once the thyroid level is stable, make sure your doctor knows to keep it at a level appropriate for someone with thyroid cancer, not the usual normal range. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my thyroid stimulating hormone shows TSH 16 should I increase or decrease the thyroxine dose?

What do you suggest if my thyroid stimulating hormone shows TSH 16  should I increase or decrease the thyroxine dose?

Should be seen by: endocrinologist- Superficially, you need more thyroid hormone, but if taking your current dose incorrectly, ie: with other meds/ foods, just taking it correctly may normalize TSH and MD can more safely adjust medication dose than you trying to do so. ...Read more

I'm 27 year old male with a thyroid stimulating hormone level of 3.92 miu/l and ft4 (free thyroxine) of 1.3 ng/dl. Do I have a thyroid problem?

I'm 27 year old male with a thyroid stimulating hormone level of 3.92 miu/l and ft4 (free thyroxine) of 1.3 ng/dl. Do I have a thyroid problem?

Thyroid: I would need to know the free t3, (liothyronine) reverse T3 (liothyronine) and the tpo and tg antibodies to see if you are producing antibodies to your thyroid. The new level per the american academy of endocrinology lowered the upper normal for TSH to 3.5. ...Read more

Triiodothyronine : 0.76 ng/ml; thyroxine : 5.27 ; thyroid stimulating hormone : 1.15. Is this normal?

Triiodothyronine : 0.76 ng/ml; thyroxine : 5.27 ; thyroid stimulating hormone : 1.15. Is this normal?

Probably: In interpreting thyroid hormone levels, you have to consider several things: What is the clinical situation at the time of the lab draw- as stress, medications, even pregnancy can all effect the levels and what they should be. Every lab also has a slightly different 'normal' range depending on how they measure the hormone. Seeing the trend also helps - Are they stable, going up or down? ...Read more
