Hypothyroid: A high TSH is consistent with primary hypothyroidism. You should have a free T4 level done. Lh is unrelated to thyroid. A low level could be related to medications, such as an oral contraceptive or other estrogen usage (or testosterone in a male). If your periods are regular, it is likely a lab error. ...Read more
My cmp blood test says TSH w/reflex to f4 is 4.44 miu/l (normal range is 0.4-4.5). Do I have hypothyroidism? I have sparse eyebrows on the outer third
Tsh in "normal" range so not technically hypothyroid. Some would argue that TSH should actually be lower.
I would repeat this in a few months. If normal again would stop worrying. If abnormal diagnosis is clear.
In any case eyebrow thinning is not likely due to this tsh. ...Read more
I was pregnant fr 7 week (now had miscarriage) nd I took a blood test. TSH 3rd gen level is 26.28. what type of thyroid is that. Am taking thyrox-100 thyroxine sodium tablets IP as suggested by doctor.
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, your TSH level suggests that an upward revision in your medication dose is warranted and you should discuss it with your doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

TSH: Stands for thyroid stimulating hormone. It is a sensitive test to detect the functioning level of the thyroid gland. The brain produces TSH and that stimulates the thyroid to produce it's hormone. If the level of the TSH is high, it means the thyroid gland is under active. If the TSH is low, that indicates the thyroid is overactive. Your doctor should discuss your results and what needs to be done. ...Read more
Depends on med: It depends on which type of medication, those containing T3 (liothyronine) will change the TSH quite rapidly whilet4 will take longer. Either way we usually wait at least a month to retest so that the result is stabilized to the current dose. Tsh changes in those not on medication will depend on the medical condition, if any, that is present. ...Read more
It depends: Upon the lab, but that value is generally in the lower end of normal, and wouldn't account for any symptoms you are experiencing. Check w/ your doctor, ...Read more
Depends.: Why was it done in the first place? Depending on the lab, it may be normal or low. If low, it needs to be repeated, along with other thyroid tests such as free t4. If the thyroid is enlarged, this TSH is consistent with early hashimoto or graves disease, but if it is normal in size, these diseases are very unlikely. ...Read more
Thyroid testing: The TSH level will be checked, and if it is out of the reference range, the lab will then run a ft4 without requiring the physician to call you in to have blood drawn again. ...Read more
My blood test result: tsh... H....5.59 (max normal range is 5), should I be worried? Many many tnx in advnc
I got my blood test back. It says my ft3 is 6.22 ft4 is 1.36 and my TSH is 2.5528 what that mean please help!?

I got my blood test back. It says my ft3 is 6.22 refrang 1.7-3.7 ft4 is 1.36 rang is 0.7 -1.48, my TSH is 2.5528 refrang 0.35-4.98?
Thyroid: Numbers alone aren't enough to work with. Do you have hypothyroidism or thyroiditis, or post thyroidectomy or none of above. Based on ft3 and ft4, I would expect your TSH to be lower. It depends on your clinical picture, lots of variables influence these #s, incl. Meds, other disorders, hormones, etc. Do you take thyroid meds? ...Read more
I recetly got a blood test done, my FT3 is 4.6 FT4 is 13.41 however TSH is 8.66. How can I lower my TSH levels? Are these levels alarming or normal?
This elevated level of tsh is indicative of an underactive thyroid and should be accompanied by abnormally low levels of ft3 and ft4. A thyroidologist or endocrinologist is best qualified to evaluate you and advise you about these values. Make sure that you inform him /her about any medications or supplements you may be taking and bring a record of your previous test results or
endocrine therapy ...Read more
I was taking fluoxetine from 15 to 20 years and after a blood test I have high tsh and bilirrubin levels?
TSH: TSH is the level of thyroid stimulating hormone, and if it is elevated means that you have hypothyroidism. Your physician should study other hormone levels and the gland itself by ultrasound or CT Scan to determine the cause. Bilirubin is a byproduct of hemoglobin produced by the liver. These two levels being affected may not have anything to do with your intake of fluoxetine. ...Read more
No: Tsh or thyroid stimulating hormone is only good for assessing thyroid function (either good, overactive or underactive). With that said, during that same blood draw, your blood could potentially be checked for testosterone to determine how much you have. This is best done in the morning. Remember that we really should treat the person (and symptoms), not just a number. Make sure benefit > risk. ...Read more
Yes: Estrogen replacement can affect TSH levels in way similar to oral contraceptives and pregnancy, by increasing the need for more thyroid hormone production. This can result in high TSH levels indicating that you have underlying primary hypothyroidism or if you are already on thyroid hormone, that you need more. There is no need to stop hrt, just adjust the dose of thyroid hormone. ...Read more

Rare conditions like allopecia can be managed by dermatology, however, usual hair loss: consider increasing protewin in diet, biotin supplement and knox geletin in jello. Avois hair collering and heat (dryers/straightening). ...Read more
The TSH blood test? How accurate is it? Could there be a lab error? I am always at 2.5 and most recent 0.01? Which is odd....
Accurate: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, why was the TSH test repeated? There is always a possibility of error anywhere along the chain in the process of testing. You doctor may get a free T4 level if s/he has any concern. ...Read more
I'm 38. My al basic blood test cum normal. Only TSH level is 5. Now adayz in evening my BP go to 140/ 90.Widin hour get normal. Wat ur advice.
Get a physical exam,: It would be best to get a physical exam with blood pressure readings and a thyroid panel if you didn't get it to go along with the tsh. That way the doctor can discuss the TSH result with possible symptoms and blood pressure readings to see if there's one or more than one problem to explain this. Good luck. ...Read more
