My doctor says my T3 (liothyronine) and T4 levels are okay but the TSH levels are still off, what are the causes? I am taking. 088 levothyroxine daily (from. 150 to. 112 to current dose) 10 + years ago had a radio-active iodine procedure.
It . It depends on what you mean by saying "off". If your TSH is high, you may be of need for increased thyroxine dosing and if low (i.E below the lower limit of normal), the opposite. Having abnormal TSH value soon after dose adjustment is not uncommon and generally, it will take up to 4-6 weeks for new dose adjustment to reflect on the blood test. I would suggest that you discuss this with your physician before any conclusion is made if the dose you are currently under is appropriate or not. Good luck. Cayce t.

My TSH is 0.741 uIU/ml, My T3 (liothyronine) is 1.33 ng/ml, My T4 is7.61 ug/dl. My doc prescribed me Levothyroxine 100mcg?
TSH. Each clinical laboratory has a different reference range for thyroid (and other) labs so you need to find out if the labs are normal, or above or below the range. In my clinic your data would not warrant Levothyroxine but you need more confirmation from your doctor. Too much of a good thing is not good for you. Read more...
