T3, (liothyronine) t4, total cholesterol, hdl, ldl, triglycerides & glucose all reports are in normal. Only TSH is 6.39 & lipoprotein lpa is 91.83 should I be concerned?

Yes, a little. Your TSH is elevated suggesting thyroid deficiency. Please note that all lab 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. Read more...
Yes. The high TSH suggests you are hypothyroid or heading that way despite "normal" T3 (liothyronine) & T4- low normal is not optimal. Check free T3 (liothyronine) & reverse T3 (liothyronine). Lp(a) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease; it is easier to neutralize than lower it- see http://tinyurl.com/okcr5ms for a good discussion. Statins don't lower Lp(a). Everyone on statins should take CoQ10- see http://tinyurl.com/ocxrush. Read more...

MY WIFES REPORT T3 (liothyronine) 50.30 T4 1.3 TSH 150.00 CHOLESTROL 198 HDL 47 LDL 119 IS IT MAJOR PROBLEM R MINOR. CAN IT BE CURED FULLY, IF YES HOW WHAT TO DO?

Fixable. Your wife is thyroid deficient and that can be corrected by taking thyroid replacement. This will completely "cure"her but she'll likely require medication life long. The lipid analysis is normal but will be even better if it's repeated after her thyroid function is corrected. Read more...
Treated, not cured. Hi. Your wife is hypothyroid. It's VERY easy to treat, but is not curable. Her doctor will treat her with thyroid hormone, and adjust the dose to give her normal thyroid function. If she ever stops the thyroid hormone, the hypothyroid condition will still be there (i.e., not curable). So fully treatable, but not curable (just like taking insulin treats but does't CURE diabetes). She'll do fine! Read more...

Heart beat very fast followed by hand shaking? Pulse 94bpm at rest. Blood pressure 90/69. Tsh, t4, T3 (liothyronine) normal. Cbc and differential count is normal too.

Cannot diagnose. Would have to see and examine you and perhaps see your electrocardiogram to even begin to guess what may be going on. Since a doctor has ordered thyroid functions you are being evaluated. Discuss this with the doctor. Hope it clears up soon. Read more...

Advise thyroid and.. You are hypothyroid; sometimes this can respond to taking iodine and detoxification but taking natural thyroid hormone is a safe ; easy way to feel better.

Cholesterol high. High total cholesterol and very high LDL are the chief concerns. Your thyroid levels seem satisfactory. At age 67, you likely have been living with this lipid profile for years. Modifying diet to very low saturated fats, very low sugar, very little refined carbs, higher intake of antioxidant fruits and veggies will help. Omega 3 will help. However, the high LDL is worrisome and medication needed. Read more...
