Question: My mother is a diabetic and had stents performed in carotid arteries for heart disease a year back. She is also suffering from hypertension and thyroid.
Recently, she took a thyroid profile test and the values were found to be within the normal range according to the lab reports. She is taking thyroid 75 mcg daily. Should she continue the same dosage or reduce it now?

Test results:
T3 0.93 ng/mL
T4 8.22 ug/dL (micro gram)
TSH 4.0

Reference levels:
T3 0.40 - 1.81 (Age 50 - 90)
T4 4.6 - 10.5
T5 0.5 - 8.9 (Age 55 - 87)

Thanks and Regards,
XXXX

Brief Answer:
the normal results mean that she is using the right dose

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The thyroid results are in the normal range because she is using the correct dose of medication.

If she was using too much or too little then the hormone results would not be in the normal range.

The dose should remain as it is unless directed to change it by her doctor for some reason.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Hi Dr. Manoranjan, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February of this year. I do have lab-work from 2009 showing a spiked level of TSH (my primary physician ignored it). In June, my TSH level finally reached a normal level of 1.6. It started at 86. However, my weight still fluctuates and I am gaining again. Is it possible that my TSH level has increased again? My endocrinologist also found two small nodules in June on my thyroid that are being looked at again soon. One was less than 1 cm in size all around (he isn t concerned) and the other is about 2 cm in size all around. I am 22 years old. Is it likely that these will shrink? Thank you, Kayla
