My mom got her thyroid tested. T3 (liothyronine) & T4 are normal but TSH is 16.7. Any concerns?

Yes. A high TSH suggests thyroid hypo-function. Tsh often changes before t3 (liothyronine) and t4. If would be prudent to consult your doctor for thyroid supplementation. Please note that all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that.

Hashimotos. You may have low grade hashimotos. With that family history and an enlarged thyroid it is quite possible that autoimmunity is slowly damaging your thyroid. But your thyroid has enlarged to compensate, and the normal TSH suggests that is compensating adequately now. Talk to your endocrinologist. You may become hypothyroid eventually, but it may not be for years. Read more...
