T3 - 1.06 ng/mL, need ref range
T4 - 8.51 ug/dL, need ref range
TSH - 5.25 uIU/mL - hypo thyroid for sure
"I've been suffering from CALF MUSCLE PULLING from last 1 and half years...Is there any solution for this??? "
- need to correct thyroid levels with thyroid med. Free T3 and Free T4 must be tested, not same as T4 and T3. Free T3 correlates with muscle / joint pain. Free T3 in upper 1/3 range will help muscles - the truth regardless of what you doc says , I've been through this muscle pain with low Free t3. It can take a long time to recover.
500 mg magnessium before bed, B vitamins, check calcium.
For sure get the free T's tested, as the totals are considered obsolete and pretty much useless.
You TPOab (thyroid peroxidase antibodies) certainly indicates Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, which is the # 1 cause of hypothyroidism in the US. Hashimoto's (Hashi's for short) is an autoimmune disease in which antibodies gradually destroy your thyroid so it no longer produces the hormones you need.
Hashi's is treated pretty much the same as hypothyroidism, but can make hypo much harder to control.
LazyMoose is right that many doctors are not good at treating thyroid issues; my former pcp totally ignored the fact that I had Hashi's, refused to test the FT3 or prescribe T3 only med, etc.
i had a test a month ago and the results came in as following:
Anti thyroglobuline 109.10
Antithyroid Ab 466.80 normal result <32 IU/ml
plz can anyone tell me what why is my antithyroid so high ??
i need anwsers please help me
is my problem serious???
This is a very old thread and your situation would get much more attention if you start your own thread. You can do that by clicking on the orange "Post a Question" button at the top of this page, type your questions/comments, then click the green "Post a Comment" button.
Your elevated antibody counts indicate that you have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. As noted above, Hashimoto's is an autoimmune thyroid disease, in which the body produces antibodies to destroy it, leaving the patient hypo.
We need to know the reference ranges for your FT3 and FT4. Ranges vary lab to lab, so have to come from your own report.
Do you have symptoms of hypothyroidism? If so, which ones?
Your problem is not "serious", but the resulting hypothyroidism can be if not treated adequately.
