... So I just went for my 6 month thyroid check. I take 50 mcg of levothyroxine for hypothyroidism. My doctor only ever checks TSH. It fell right in the middle of normal (range was .45-4.5), mine was 2.730.
My question is my a/g ratio came back slightly elevated. (range 1.1-2.5) mine was 2.6. Would this indicate thyroid issues need to be examined further?

... Hi there
In April of 2013, I was sent to the ER four various occasions over a three week period. During that time I was pretty well a different person, feeling I was dying. Hallucinations, passing out, semi comatose state and each visit I was medically cleared and sent home. All times my blood work they said was all fine.

... Hi, I'm new here, a little background... I went to several doctors about 2 years ago because I was convinced that I had hypothyroidism. But none of my test results came back such that the doctors would treat me. So instead they said I was just depressed and gave me antidepressants. After fighting to stay off of them for about 5 months, I finally gave in. Took Welbutrin SR... (0 replies)

... I am trying to decipher my 20 year old daughter's labs as she is exhausted and has gained 60 pounds in a year and 1/2. My daughter got serious mono second semester of freshman year and had to return from college. Her Pediatrician said that the mono virus was affecting her thyroid at that time (January of 2011). The Thyroid portion of her labs said this:
FT4 (.93-1.60) 1.20... (6 replies)
... Just wanted to update you regarding my daughter's thyroid issue...
She started on 25 mcg of Levothyroxine shortly after my last post. Within a couple of weeks, she had a bit more energy and was able to go back to school. At her next endo appointment, we told the doctor this, and he said it could be a placebo effect...still suggesting that her thyroid is not the problem.

... I don't think the blocking antibody theory is coming into play for you because blocking antibodies suppress TSH. Suppressed TSH means below-range or undetectable....and that is not the case for you.
You could very well have a combo of Hashi's and Graves' - people have this...and it's tough 'cuz you can vacillate with symptoms and labs.
I really hope you get some... (18 replies)
... oh-- I forgot to mention my FT3 is low-2.8 and my last FT4 was higher than it has ever been for me at 1.45 (normally it hovers around 1.0). TSH at 1.5. Still not completely sure that I fully understand how that all fits with my TSI of 100 other than that blocking antibody theory or maybe as Midwest suggests a combo of Hashi's and Graves.

... I think you should find another doctor - one that recognizes obvious hypo symptoms with low-in-the-range thyroid hormone levels.
My TSH has been below-range for over 3 years since I have Graves' disease. I went into remission in late 2009 but then developed debilitating hypo symptoms early last year and my FT4/FT3 levels were just under mid-range! (thankfully, I had found... (8 replies)
... The doctor is saying pituitary issues are extremely rare and would not consider me to be prone to it!
The normal ranges are:
FT3 1.68 pg/ml (1.45 - 3.48)
FT4 0.80 ng/dl (0.71 - 1.85)
TSH 0.708 mIU/ml (0.17 - 4.64)
When I tell him they are close to the minimum, he's saying but I can't diagnose you with Hypothyroid because we cannot ignore the normal... (8 replies)
