Re: Does low TSH + low T4 mean Pituitary problem?
Hi, Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents worth here. Going by those labs results and the ranges it would appear that you're in Canada. I live in Ontario Canada and my Free T3 range is 2.6 - 5.7 pmol/L. I think those are standard Candian (metric) ranges.
I have a somewhat similar problem. Both my TSH and Free T4 are low too and yet my T3 is okay. I too wondered about a pituitary problem as my ovaries never developed as a teen and have primary amenorrhea.
Hope you get your T4 up. That's what I'm hoping to do. I'm finding it hard to get a doc who doesn't put so much worth in the TSH and gets nervous when it goes below range. They don't get it. They should be paying more attention to the Fre T4 values and not look so much at the TSH.
