Test results interpretation

Help!!

I need help with interpretation with the recent test results of my sister's thyroid hormones estimation....



The tests were conducted at 3 different labs and it seems they point to something which general physicians are unable to pin-point...


Tests:


1.>  Ultra TSH (using CLIA)- 19.02  (normal range - 0.4-6.02)
       T3 - 0.692   (range- 0.846 -2.02)
       T4 - 4.90     (range- 5.13 - 14.06)


2.> TSH - 70 (range - 0.17-4.05)
      T3- 130 (range- 70-200)
      T4- 6.0  (range 5.5-13.5)


3.>TSH - 77.35 (range - 0.30-5.5)
     T3  -     98     (range- 60-200)
     T4 -      5.60  (range 4.5-12.0)

It looks to me (this is obvious, right?) that her TSH is off the charts!

This is what I found online:

A high TSH result often means an underactive thyroid gland that is not responding adequately to the stimulation of TSH due to some type of acute or chronic thyroid dysfunction. Rarely, a high TSH result can indicate a problem with the pituitary gland, such as a tumor producing unregulated levels of TSH. A high TSH value can also occur when patients with a known thyroid disorder (or those who have had their thyroid gland removed) are receiving too little thyroid hormone medication.

Maybe try the Thyroid - Expert Forum.  The Doctor (Dr. Lupo) may be able to give you some answers.
