Mild: Hi. You have subclinical hypothyroidism. That is to say you have mild (so far) damage to the thyroid gland that with a little extra "push" from the pituitary (slightly elevated TSH) is still able to keep T4 and T3 (liothyronine) production in the normal range. Nevertheless, the damage to the thyroid (most likely autoimmune) will progress. You should be treated now. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could TSH 0.6 & ft4 0.9 & extreme fatigue/low body temp possibly suggest pituitary problems? More workup or seek other etiology?
Work up: Hopefully, you have been referred to an endocrinologist to discuss these laboratory results. Single values in a vacuum often do not tell the whole story, and the hypothalamic, pituitary, thyroid, end organ axis can have a number of reasons for these results. Best to discuss with the person who ordered the tests to get an appropriate referral and make sure you're up to speed with the plan. ...Read more

Good evening. I've been suffering from whole body swelling. My TSH is low, and my free T4 is lower on each subsequent test. Is this a thyroid issue?

Help me figure this out - i just want an answer to my question. Is it possible for a low thyroid (tsh 6.25) to cause my body to release adrenaline at?
Not likely: You have a mildly elevated tsh, which is consistent with mild hypothyroidism. However, you should also have a free T4 level done to see how abnormal the thyroid level is. Hypothyroidism is not associated with excess release of adrenalin. However symptoms of excess Adrenalin are common and can be due to multiple causes such as anxiety, stress, caffeine, other drugs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My TSH is high with 18.7 and T3 (liothyronine) is 112 , T4 is 5.3 which shows in normal range ...What should I do...Is it harmful to my my body if i not treated?
Underactive thyroid: Total t3 (liothyronine) normal values: 80-200 ng/dl ( for your age ) total T4 normal values: 4.25-12.5 mcg/dl ( for your age ). Your values suggest subclinical hypothyroidism. Nevertheless, T4 is in the low end of normal and t3 (liothyronine) too. I would like to see the values of free T4 and free t3 (liothyronine), a i-123 thyroid scan and a 24 hours urine collection for iodine. Yes, you should be treated. ...Read more
