My tsh (thyroid) is 4.86 uiu/ml and my lh (hormones) is. 992 miu/ml. These tests were done midcyle (menstruation).Are these normal ranges?
May not be normal: Tsh of 4.86 is slightly high, indicating that your thyroid level may be mildly low. This should be repeated and a freet4 level done as well. Most labs do not have lh assays that are sensitive in the low range. The lh of. 992 may be normal depending on where you are in your cycle. Menstruation denotes the start of a cycle. Midcycle would be 14 days before your next period, and lh would be high.
My thyroid stim. Hormone value is 1.680? Is that good or bad? Should I ask for a T3 (liothyronine) T4 test just to be sure cause I heard the TSH isn't always accruate?
TSH accurate: Tsh is the most sensitive indicator of thyroid function. If it is normal (as yours is), it is highly unlikely that you have a problem with your thyroid. There are rare problems of the pituitary gland in which the TSH is not an accurate test. In that case a free T4 level is helpful. Despite what you may read on the internet, T4 and t3 (liothyronine) levels are usually only helpful if the TSH is abnormal.
