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)?

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
