Recommended Posts

Can any one help, went to my doctor with hair loss, shakes, jiont pains, fatigue. She said she tested my thyroid and did CBC. I thought she did the whole thyroid panel but foound out today just did TSH.

She said I am low in iron which I am unsucessfully being treated for and my thyoid was fine.

I found today my TSH was 0.97 . T3 and T4 not done. Can I still be hyperthyroid?

I am cealic and have fibro.

Thanks in advance for you replys.

Your TSH result is within 'normal' range. However that test alone doesn't give the whole picture. TSH is not a thyroid hormone. It's produced by the pituitary gland to tell the thyroid to produce more T3 and T4 thyroid hormones. However, TSH can be normal while the thyroid hormones and thyroid antibodies (highly correlated with celiac disease) be abnormally low and high respectively. Ask your doc to order the complete panel of thyroid tests (free t3, free t4, TPOab (thyroid peroxidase antibodies), reverse t3 as well as TSH).

You actually want the TSI antibody test if you suspect Graves'.

I forgot to ask which symptom makes you think you're hyperthyroid? "Shakes"? The fatigue, hair loss and joint pain could also be hypothyroid, which is why I suggested more tests for hypothyroidism, especially Hashimoto's, which is correlated with celiac disease.
