What Is The Normal Tsh And T4 Level In A New Born Baby
Tsh > 40 mU/L: All infants with a low T4 concentration and a TSH concentration greater than 40 mU per L are considered to have congenital hypothyroidism and should have immediate confirmatory serum testing. Replacement levothyroxine (LT4) treatment should be initiated as soon as confirmatory samples have been taken, without waiting for the results ...Read more
My doctor said thyroid level in blood of my new born baby is slightly higher than normal. What is the risk associated?
High TSH: Elevation of TSH with newborn screening absolutely needs follow-up. Perhaps newborn screening was done before 24 hours of life? Regardless, the risk of delaying possible treatment for congenital hypothyroidism means potential loss of iq points for the child. A pediatric endocrinologist must be consulted to determine if newborn screening was a false positive or requires treatment asap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If my free T3 (liothyronine) and T4 is in the normal range, but my ths is 11.7 what does that mean?
If I have a TSH level of 2.59 but a T4 level of 0.96 is that still normal? My doctor said I'm within all normal ranges. My FT3 is 4.2
Thyroid Tests: The T4 is in teh low normal range. However the TSH and T3 (liothyronine) seem to be fine. I usually look for antibodies to the thyroid and also symptoms to interpret thyroid normalcy. Classic medicine is only about TSH and T4. So if you have symptoms more may need to be done. ...Read more
In 14th week of pregnancy rubella IgG antibodies is 52.10 . Is normal or needs some attention? My baby is affected or not?
Rubella IGG: This is good news. It means that you had rubella, aka german measles, in the past and are now immune to it and so cannot fall sick with it during your pregnancy. This is important since getting rubella while pregnant is dangerous for the growing baby. Best wishes for a very healthy baby. ...Read more

Hi Is there a medicine to bring TSH in control which is at 7.14. T3 and T4 are in range. Does it mean underactive thyroid. Thanks?
Higher than adults.: Tsh concentrations in children are normally higher than in adults. The nacb (national academy of clinical biochemistry) set age-related reference limits at about 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml in normal-term infants at birth, 0.6–10 µiu/ml at 10 weeks old, 0.4–7.0 µiu/ml at 14 months and gradually dropping to adult levels, or 0.4–4.0 µiu/ml. So 1.3 - 19 µiu/ml is the range for newborns. ...Read more

My wife 's blood report shows some signs of trisomy and she is in 20th week of pregnany .Is this is always evedential that this will affect the baby?
Depends.: If your wife had a quad screen with increased risk for fetal trisomy 21 or 18 then it is not diagnostic and a targeted fetal ultrasound should help modify her risk. If she had maternit21/harmony testing of fetal dna in the maternal circulation and found trisomy 21, 13 or 18, then it is virtually diagnostic and merits invasive prenatal diagnosis even if ultrasound is normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a TSH of 0.10l and the lab slip says it is out of range. My T4 is 0.9 and my T3 (liothyronine) is 3.2. The T4 reagent produces results 9 percent higher. What does this all mean?
Normal Thyroid is?: Alot of variables. From your picture, i assume you are female. If you are on ocp's or hrt, this affects thyroid function.

What happens if baby drops from fetal growth percentile in 4 weeks but is still within the 10 and 90%? Is that a reason for concern?
No concern: The ultrasound measurements can vary from one test to the next. In the last month or two of pregnancy, ultrasound "guesses" about baby's size and weight can be off by quite a bit. It is not perfect technology. As long as the baby does not drop below the 10th percentile it should be fine. It sounds like you are being followed closely, which is good. Good luck. ...Read more
I have a TSH level of 1.16 and a T4 free level of 1.2. Is it possible to have a thyroid disorder when these tests are in normal range?
Hi my TSH level is 5.79 with normal T4 levels and thyroid antibody. Is it safe to plan a pregnancy with the above reading?
Check this out first: You have slightly high TSH levels (0.4-5 mu/l nml range) and T4 is ok. If you have thyroid ab, you should get some workup for what it might be because it might point to your high tsh, and might indicate an underlying disease, like hashimoto's that you should be treated for before you think of pregnancy. Even if you don't have thyroid ab, you should get a thorough workup for unexpected findings. ...Read more
