The thyroid fiction tests are also compatible with renal insufficiency and this is the reason I asked for creatinine and/or BUN values. The borderline low T4 and T3 with normal TSH, slightly low TBG and slightly high PRL are typical.My suggestion is to obtain a general chemistry screen including kidney and liver function tests and blood count. Urinalysis. A complete history of medication and other substances use. Finally, obtaining thyroid function tests on family members (parents and sibling) could be very enlightening.
Hope this helps. I would love to receive a follow up. Regards, Samuel Refetoff, MD.Question. I would appreciate your comments on this case. This is a 24-year-old man who was referred for low normal values of T4 and T3 with normal TSH.
For routine thyroid function testing many laboratories now confine themselves to assay of thyroid stimulating hormone TSH had become normal. low TSH in this.EVIDENCE -BASED ANSWER Subclinical hyperthyroidism (SCH) is defined as a low thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) level with normal free T4 and free T3 levels in.
Could I have symptoms when my TSH levels are within normal range, yet my Free Thyroxine levels are on the low? If so would joint pain/stiffness, exhaustion and mood.TBG abnormality is also a possibility, although free T4 should be normal. However if the defect is inherited and results in a mutant TBG with lower affinity for T4 and T3, rather than low amount of TBG, measurement of free T4 by direct method my give a spurious value.
Question I would appreciate your comments on this case. This is a 24-year-old man who was referred for low normal values of T4 and T3 with normal TSH. He noted easy fatigability and a bit of weight gain during the last year.He was clinically euthyroid and had no goiter. Considering the possibility of a secondary hypothyroidism, pituitary function was evaluated: FSH: 5.3 mUI/ml LH: 2.5 mUI/ml total testoterone: 4.39 ng/ml (RV ) PRL: 21.4 ng/ml (RV ) cortisol: 20.97 mcg/dl (RV 5-25) TSH: 2.89 T4: 4 T3: 86 FT4: 0.71 Normal MRI scan except for a.
Rarewith a low radioiodine uptake Thyroxine interpretation of thyroid function tests with Low or normal TSH, low or normal FT4 or FT3 Patient systemically.Its clearly not enlarged and consistency is also ee T4 was measured by a direct method, I tried to measure it by dialysis but no lab can do this determination in Buenos Aires.
Diagnosing Thyroid Conditions: In addition to a thyroid-specific clinical evaluation, thyroid conditions require specific tests and procedures to be diagnosed.Thyroid-stimulating hormone (also known as thyrotropin, thyrotropic hormone, TSH, or hTSH for human TSH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the thyroid gland to.
Free thyroxine (free T4) Low free T4 results in conjunction with a low TSH level or high free T4 results along with a high TSH may Low or normal.For the same reason I couldnt measure reverse T3. Im afraid I dont have a kidney function test. He isnt body builder nor he lifts weights. The last test I ordered was a TRH test and these are the results: basal TSH: 1.82, 20 : 15.8, 30: 13.46, 60: 8.32.
Finally, use of a wide range of drugs can produce such results. Anabolic steroids are excluded as FSH and LH are not suppressed. However, other drugs could produce the laboratory pattern you obtained.My TSH levels are normal but my T4 s are low. Not sure what this means since if my pituitary glands are producing enough TSH what is happening to make my T4 s low?
