On levothyroxine 75mg changed to 100mg 8.95 tsh  1.1 free thyroxine. Could this be hashimoto's?   Is there something possibly else wrong? Cholesterol 220ish down from 350 2 yrs ago and 40lbs lighter.
Hashimoto's thy roiditis, or chronic lymphocytic thy roiditis, is an autoimmune disease. Also known as Hashimoto's disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and autoimmune thyroiditis, also known as autoimmune thyroiditis, this disease is more common in middle-aged women, there is a tendency to develop into hypothyroidism, clinical more common. Most of them are women aged 30 to 50 years old. The onset of the disease is concealed and the course of the disease is slow. The main manifestation is goiter. Most of them are diffuse. A few can be limited. Some of them are caused by swelling of the face and limbs.
1. Autoantibodies with high titers against various components of thyroid can be detected in the serum of patients during the course of disease. For example, thyroid microsomal antibody, thyroglobulin antibody and serum thyroxine stimulation blocking antibody (TsBAb) increased in some patients.

2. Evidence of cellular immunity is that there are a large number of plasma cells and lymphocyte infiltration and lymphoid follicles in thyroid tissue. T lymphocyte is sensitized by Blastcell formation, migration inhibitor and lymphotoxin production, and the corresponding antigen is mainly thyroid cell membrane.

3. Some patients are accompanied by other autoimmune diseases such as pernicious anemia, disseminated erythema, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, type I diabetes mellitus, chronic active hepatitis, etc. When the thyroid function is obviously low in the later stage of the disease, it presents mucoedema clinically.  Inhibitory T lymphocyte genetic defects in patients lead to the production of thyroid autoantibodies. In combination with this disease, K cells mediate immunity, releasing soluble cells including lymphotoxins, leading to thyroid cell damage. In addition, genetic factors are closely related to the pathogenesis of autoimmunity.  Family clustering is common in this disease, and it occurs more frequently in females. In the study of HLA genetic factors, we found that DBW3 and DR5 were increased in
I just received lab results for blood work and my TSH level is 0.95. Is this normal? I'm already on thyroid meds
TSH normal range is 0.4 - 4.5 mIU/L, 0.95 is within the normal range. Yet, your doctor may have set a target value higher than 0.4 since you've been on thyroid meds. Please discuss with your doctor.
I am taking levothyroxine 75mcg and my blood work just came back telling me my TSH levels are very low. My fr called to day it’s reslly low and this can cause heart problems. I’ve actually have had a few different things (like my heart racing, pain in my chest) in the last couple of weeks. Can you tell about the symptoms and the effects that could have?
A low TSH may indicate an overactive thyroid gland, or taking more than necessary thyroid hormone medication. In this case, you can show symptoms as in hyperthyroidism, like irregular heartbeats, restlessness, nervousness.
I am on thyroid medication for hypothyroid. 100mcg I got something from my doctor say that my tsh is 0.14 and they need to lower my medication. I always thought if your tsh was to low, your medication needed to be raised. I am on a diet medication. Could that have lowere my tsh?. I talked to my doctor about the diet pill and he said it should not affect anything. Am I wrong in thinking that my medication should be raised not lowered
Normal TSH is 2-10mU/L, if yours is 0.14 mU/L, your TSH level is lower. TSH is the hormone to stimulate your thyroid hormone, when your thyroid hormone is high, your body secrets less TSH since it's not necessary, you've already had enough thyroid hormone in your body, which you get from medication. That's why a low TSH means you have high thyroid hormone and your doctor needs to lower the dose.
