Is it safe for patients taking thyroxine to have a low but not suppressed serum TSH concentration?

http://www.endocrine-abstracts.org/ea/0021/ea0021OC5.6.htm

 

Doctors who go by TSH will often site the risks of osteoporosis and cardiovascular accident as reason to keep TSH in normal limits even though it will result in a patient being undermedicated.. This study was a breakthrough in the relationship of subclinical hyperthyroid TSH levels  relative to these risks.Low but not suppressed is acceptable.

Study Conclusion:
People on long-term thyroxine with a high or suppressed TSH are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, dysrhythmias and fractures. People with a low but not suppressed TSH did not have an increased risk of these outcomes in this study. It may be safe for patients treated with thyroxine to have a low but not suppressed serum TSH concentration.

Osteoporosis:

Risk of osteoporosis

 Our study suggests that slightly suppressive L-thyroxine administration in nontoxic goitre can activate bone turnover but constitutes neither an actual risk factor for bone loss nor, consequently, for osteoporotic fractures.

B. Approach to a low TSH level: Patience is a virtue

C. The problem of exogenous subclinical hyperthyroidism

http://hormones.gr/preview.php?c_id=144

 

CONCLUSION:

The etiology of subclinical hyperthyroidism influences BMD in postmenopausal women. Endogenous subclinical hyperthyroidism might be considered as an additional risk factor for osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, especially for cortical bone, whereas exogenous subclinical hyperthyroidism has no effect on BMD.
