In hyperthyroidism, would a low TSH be caused by a pituatary tumor? If so, what would blood tests indicate?

TSH: Tsh, thyroid stimulating hormone (or thyrotropin), is made by the pituitary gland in the brain and signals the thyroid to make thyroid hormone. In hyperthyroidism, thyroid hormone, made by the thyroid, circulates in the blood to the pituitary gland to lower tsh. ...Read more

Hyperthyroidism (Definition)

Hypothyroidism is a medical condition that lowers the level of thyroid hormone to a point where the patient has a marked decrease in overall health. Often the patient does not notice the loss of thyroid hormone for several weeks or more. Once diagnosed with low thyroid hormone levels, the patient will be prescribed with thyroid hormone to a point where the thyroid levels are normal and ...Read more

No: 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 is in the normal range. 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. 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. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a very overactive thyroid even if your TSH levels are in normal range?

Is it possible to have a very overactive thyroid even if your TSH levels are in normal range?

Very unlikely: A very overactive thyroid is virtually always associated with a very low or undetectable tsh. Of course a laboratory error could be responsible and the test should always be repeated if it does not fit with the clinical picture. Lastly, stress and/or an underactive adrenal gland can sometime mimic and overactive thyroid. ...Read more

Hi My TSH level is 6.5 is this hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. is this normal?

Hi My TSH level is 6.5 is this hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. is this normal?

Probably hypo: Hi. In all likelihood, you have subclinical hypothyroidism. It would help to know your free T4. There are VERY rare conditions (emphasis on VERY) due to either TSH-producing pituitary adenomas or mutations in the thyroid receptor where elevations in TSH are seen and the patient does not have subclinical hypothyroidism, but playing the odds, go with hypo. Checking TPO and Tg antibodies may help too ...Read more

What can I do if my TSH levels are 5.210 (h) and is labeled abnormal. Do I have hypo- or hyperthyroidism?

Hypothyroidism : Tsh is thyroid stimulating hormone. Meaning if your thyroid isn't working hard enough (underactive/hypothyroidism), then more TSH is released to stimulate your thyroid to work harder. ...Read more

What can you about 0.00 levels of tsh in hyperthyroidism?

What can you about 0.00 levels of tsh in hyperthyroidism?

Comply: Forgive my frankness. You are not treating a lab value. There is no home remedy or "pop" cure. You need to accept medication, surgery, or radioactive iodine for your hyperthyroidism, or you will die from it like thousands of others over the years. I suspect that you already are aware of this. Glad you were diagnosed. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a TSH level of 4.46 is it hypo or hyperthyroidism??  And if it is problematic what i should do now ???

Near normal: Your TSH is just above the normal level and you do not need to do anything at this time. Re do the test in six months to a year to see if it changes. See this site for info. http://www.webmd.com/women/thyroid-stimulating-hormone-tsh?page=2 ...Read more

Tsh is 0.07. T4 16.2. Is this level hyperthyroidism? I have tyroid disease and I'm on levothyoxin 1.00 55 yrs old

Tsh is 0.07. T4 16.2. Is this level hyperthyroidism? I have tyroid disease and I'm on levothyoxin 1.00 55 yrs old

Thyroid level high: You appear to be on too much levothyroxine, as your TSH level is low and T4 level is high. The more important number is the TSH. You should be on a slightly lower dosage, perhaps 0.088 mg daily and then recheck the level after 6 weeks. ...Read more

Having hyperthyroidism symp. Initial test showed low end norm TSH, elevT4. 2 mo later no better, but now test results fall in normal range. What next?

Thyroid studies: Thyroid problems should be fully evaluated. If you had hyperthyroidism that was transient, you may have an autoimmune problem like Hashimoto's disease, but it could also be Grave's disease. You should have thyroid antibody studies done and repeat your thyroid function testing, TSH, T4 and T3 (liothyronine). It might also be prudent to scan you thyroid to make sure there are no nodules or lumps. Best of luck ...Read more
