TSH results--trending toward hyperthyroid?

Hello. Last week I asked that my doctor provide me with a CBC including TSH, T3 and T4, since recent symptoms made me suspect something in the thyroid department. Iím an avid road cyclist where performance and recovery have been less than stellar lately.

Here are the results (plus some historical):

TSH

1.21 (July 2012)
1.74 (November 2011)
1.73 (April 2011)

T3: 89 (ng/dL) (July 2012)
T4: 5.9 (ug/dL) (July 2012)

The TSH is trending toward hyperthyroid, correct?

Iíve always maintained a gluten, soy and caffeine-free diet. No major dietary changes to speak of, EXCEPT adding a scoop of Sun Warrior Ormus Supergreen powder to my morning smoothie beginning March of this year. I also throw in 1-2 tsp of Spirulina.

Could the 30mg of spinach powder contained in the scoop of Ormus greens be a possible factor, or even the Spirulina?

My results just got posted, so Iíve yet to discuss them with my doctor. Lots of things running through my head right now.

Cheers,
-Steve

Hello Your TSH is actually trending towards "normal" (as healthy people usually have their TSH closer to 1, hyperthyroid would be closer to 0) but your actual thyroid levels look hypothyroid. It would be better to have FreeT4 and FreeT3 tested but with typical ranges for total T4 and T3 your levels are on the low side so no way hyperthyroid (if you could post the reference ranges to be sure of this that would be great ).

T3: 89 (ng/dL) [80-200 ref range]
T4: 5.9 (ug/dL) [4.6-10.7 ref range]

I've read that 120-124 is the "optimal" rage for T3.

A normal TSH and lower-end T3 is an interesting combination that I will look into.
