Hyperthyroid Lab Results?
I want to ask if the result of my sister’s TSH-S 0.0019 is what? because my sister’s specialist doctor is on leave. Thank you
Hello Ana, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
TSH is a hormone produced by glands in the brain where this hormone functions to stimulate the thyroid gland (thyroid) to produce thyroid hormone. The normal value for this hormone examination varies in each examination laboratory and also depends on the age, sex, and certain body conditions such as pregnancy. But in general, the normal value of TSH ranges from 0.4 - 4.9 mU / L. If the number is below 0.4 mU / L then it can be interpreted that the TSH hormone in the body is low, whereas if above 4.9 mU / L it can be interpreted that the TSH hormone in the body increases. Lower or higher TSH levels in the body are not a normal state, both of which can be a clue to a particular situation.
Low TSH levels can be caused by several conditions such as:
High levels of iodine in the body
Use of drugs that contain excessive thyroid hormone
Tumors in the thyroid gland that produce excessive thyroid hormone
While high TSH levels can be caused by several conditions such as:
Tumors in TSH hormone producing glands
Lack of iodine levels in the body
Regarding the results of the examination that you listed above, sorry because the unit was not included, the information is not enough for me to help interpret. You can adjust the results with the normal values listed on the examination results. To find out for sure your brother's condition, you should ask further information to the specialist doctor who is dealing with your sister because the doctor is more aware of your sister's condition.
I hope this helps.
