Hi. I will seek a qualified medical opinion at the end of the month, but I liked also to hear your oppinions about it.
What about the option that a bit under-active thyroid causes sub-optimal LH and testosterone?
Last summer I was diagnosed with a thyroid node, non-cancerous, a biopsy was made. They tested these hormones and said they are in range:
TAT(Anti-Tig) 42.4 lU/ml <125
Yes, I know very little tests. I examined my thyroid node on ultra sound December 2018 and again 01.04 this year. April they made me more tests:
|TSH||1.4||mU/L||0.27 - 4.20|
|T4, Free||1.59||ng/dL||0.93 - 1.70|
|Anti - TPO||6.32||U/mL||< 5.61|
As we can see Anti-TPO is elevated, but the doctors said NO PROBLEM!
Then I started to read about thyroid and found out nobody tested my T3 and Reverse T3 and I tested them myself in June(last month):
Free T3 (fT3) S 2.88 ng/l 2 - 4.40 ECLIA
Reverse T3 S 325 pg/ml 90 - 215 RIA
Seems T3 is not terrible, but not great. As I know it should be above 3.50 to be optimal. Also there is too much Reverse T3.
Is it possible the thyroid cause sub-optimal LH and FSH?
All the time so far I’ve digged into my pituitary, but seems the original problem may not be there…
