I am 32 yrs old male from India. I got my T3,T4 and TSH test done in Mar'09, the values were
Total T3 -> 0.59 ng/mL (Reference Range 0.79 - 1.49)
Total T4 -> 4.19 ug/dl (Reference Range 4.5 - 12)
TSH -> 5.92 uIU/mL (Reference Range Adults -> 0.4 - 4.67)
I am already taking Seloken XL 50 mg and TG-TOR EZ for slightly elevated hypertension and Cholesterol. Seeing these values of T3,T4 and TSH doctor advised me to take 1 tablet thyronorm 25 mcg daily in the morning. I took this tablet for about a month and got my test done again in June'09 and the values were
Total T3 -> 1.89 ng/mL (Reference Range 0.79 - 1.49)
Total T4 -> 8.30 ug/dl (Reference Range 4.5 - 12)
TSH -> 0.01 uIU/mL (Reference Range Adults -> 0.4 - 4.67)
As the TSH value had become very low, doctor advised me to stop thyronorm 25 mcg immediately. After about 3 months, recently I again got the test done and saw that TSH value is increased. Also the Bilirubin value is increased in Liver Profile Test.
Total T3 -> 0.65 ng/mL (Reference Range 0.79 - 1.49)
Total T4 -> 3.09 ug/dl (Reference Range 4.5 - 12)
TSH -> 47.06 uIU/mL (Reference Range Adults -> 0.4 - 4.67)
Total Bilirubin -> 2.1 mg/dl (Reference Range 0.2 - 1.2)
Direct Bilirubin -> 0.5 mg/dl (Reference Range 0 - 0.3)
Indirect Bilirubin -> 1.60 mg/dl (Reference Range 0 - 0.6)
I am confused about these values. In general, I don't have any symptoms of Hypothyroid. Please advise.
First the Total Ts does not give a lot of information, next time ask for the Free T4 and Free T3 instead .
It was a good Idea to start taking thyroid med for your TSH indicated hypo ,however , you get slightly Hyper and so your doctor should have decreased your dose rather than recommend stop taking the med !
