Your TSH is normal means thyroid status is normal. Surgery is advised for cosmatic purpose or for its pressure effect on surrounding structures or suspected malignancy.

Hello, Thanks for the query, The creatinine level is very good, no reason to worry. It is important to maintain BP around 120 - 130/ 70 - 80 mmHg, and TSH around 3 to 4 mU/L. That will keep her free from symptoms and fairly healthy and fit. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Usually antithyroid drug treatment is given for 18 to 24 months. During that period when TSH levels return to around 3 - 4 mU/L (normal range 0.4 to 5 mU/L), thereapy is discontinued. If there is relapse after a few weeks or months same drug may be repeated for another course. However, it is noticed that longer usage hardly produces any benefit. That thyroid function does not return to normal (or remains high). Therefore, I am a bit surprised that you have been on ATD for over 10 years. Another aspect your TSH level is also pretty low (0.01 mU/L), suggestive of not much benefit from the on going therapy. Please clarify if you have consulted any endocrinologist during recent time? If yes what was the opinion of that doctor? Usually to achieve better results other options like Radio Active Iodine (RAI) or surgery are considered when relapses continue to occur. Therefore, please come back with answers to my queries. Thanks.

lybrate-user ji, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given, from which I learn that TSH is in the sub-clinical hypothyroidism range and LFT values are high (no details given). Usually sub-clinical hypothyroidism is not treated unless a patient has troublesome symptoms associated with that condition. Since you have not given any values of liver enzymes, there is no way to comment. Regarding thyroid please let me know if there are any associated symptoms. Thanks.

lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Madam Ideally TSH should be maintained in the following levels during gestation period: 1 st Trimester: 0.2 to 2.5 mU/L, 2nd Trimester 0.2 to 3.0 m/L 3rd Trimester 0.3 to 3.0 mU/L. Considering these levels, your curreent level is higher than recommended. So it is better if Levothyroxine is taken in required dosage and TSH is brought down to desired level. It is essential to maintain TSH in the recommended range for proper development of fetus and normal delivery. Thanks.

Symptoms of hypothyroidism might include: Fatigue Weight gain Cold intolerance Dry or brittle hair Memory problems Irritability and depression Higher cholesterol levels Slower heart rate Constipation, or sluggish bowel On the flip side, if your thyroid secretes too many hormones, bodily functions will speed up, as it does in hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroid symptoms could include: Weight loss Heat intolerance Frequent bowel movements Tremors Nervousness and irritability Thyroid gland enlargement Sleep disturbances Fatigue.
