TSH 7.5 , T3 (liothyronine) 111, T48 What is the effect of it on my body is it severe or mild?

TSH 7.5 , T3 (liothyronine) 111, T48   What is the effect of it on my body is it severe or mild?

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 more

Could TSH 0.6 & ft4 0.9 & extreme fatigue/low body temp possibly suggest pituitary problems? More workup or seek other etiology?

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?

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?

NOT REALLY: it sounds more like a PITUITARY condition. The pituitary gland (called the "master gland" is located below the base of the brain and REGULATES thyroid function AND the functions of other glands as well! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more
