Dear Pradip,what was the reason for testing thyriod ? are you having any problem ? The reports suggest that your TSH level is very high,which means your thyroid gland is not producing proper quantity of thyroid hormones.Please consult an endocrinologist for further evaluation and then treatment.Normal thyroid function is must for all the systems of body.buy.

I just received my lab results from my medical doctor and I cannot get intouch with them and have an immediate concern about my results and a major question. My TSH level is 27.38 which is very high. I am already on medication and have had my thyroid zapped twice with the radiation pill. What does the 27.38 level suggest, other than my level being too high? What are the immediate (like right now) ramifications? What should I do immediately (like, right now)?

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
