T3 (liothyronine) 0.98, T4 8.79, TSH 1.24 told normal although endocrinologist said have nodules and thyroid looks stressed, prescribed low dose levothyroxine. Why?
Hashimotos. Additional testing for antibodies necessary. Presumptive diagnosis made.
Ask the 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 lab test are normal and you should ask the doctor who prescribed the medication.
Hi, t3 (liothyronine) uptake: 32, t4 free 1.35, t4 11.8, FTI 3.8, TSH 2.050, im taking. 50 mcg levothyroxine. Hows my thyroid, gain 40 pounds last few years?
Not your thyroid. I can't say if you needed to be started on T4 without seeing your test results before treatment but your current tests show normal thyroid levels on your current dose. It is rare for an underactive thyroid to case weight gain and when it does, the thyroid is severely underactive and weight gain is no more than 5-10 lb. So your 40 lb weight gain is likely due to lifestyle not hormonal issues.
Thyroid levels: TSH 6.620, T4 1.13 & T3 (liothyronine) is 2.3. I'm on 125 L- thyroxine 5 days. My doctor said take it 7 days. Will this help? Feeling low energy
Much longer. To rebalance your hormones will take much longer time than 7 days. Other hormones like estrogen, progesterone, cortisol also need to be evaluated. Please consult your doc for detailes.
Can someone interpret my thyroid levels: T3 (liothyronine) 1.06 ng/ml, T4 10.20? g/dl, TSH 2.05? iu/ml. I take 75 mg l-thyroxine everyday. Am I given the right dose?
Normal. Your thyroid levels are normal. You appear to be on the correct dose of levothyroxine.
My T3 (liothyronine) (138), T4 (1.4), TSH (1.1) tests normal. Dr didn't run any additional tests. 1.4-1.8 cm nodules on thyroid. Hypo symptoms. Do I get 2nd opinion?
Yes! The blood tests are measuring functionality, not tissue structure. See another endo and get a biopsy.
