Normal T3, T4 & high TSH
I got my wife's reports yesterday for TSH tests & am worried about her health, her T3 is 1.15, T4 is 77.2 & TSH is 42.14, though she doesn't have any visible symptom, only that her mensurational cycle was irregular twice & irritability at times. Though I tried to find out a bit over some articles online & found that the hypothyroid results in underactive gland & that the gland is shrunk a bit, but in her case as I can see it's not shrunk but looks a bit inflamed. She doesn't have gained or lost weight or shivering hands etc. She does have tiredness at times during the day & mood swings since a week. Could anyone please help me? I'd like to know if this is really thyroid, because T3 & T4 are normal ... Also could it be thyroditis ? Or subclinical thyroid ? Please shed some light on this, I could only gather this much knowledge in 1 night, I'd like to know what exactly the problem is & its root cause & if its treatable... Also Is this an emergency as I'm in a remote area. Please Help :(

Hello there. I can understand your concern. First of all, the symptoms stated on the internet are more like classic symptoms, it's not like that now a days. Also, yes she has hypothyroidism. And she needs to take medicine. A few more tests might be required. Consult a endocrinologist in person for further evaluation and management. Also, don't try to play doctor doctor. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain. Bangalore.
