    Thyroid blood work numbers- what do they mean?


    My results are:
    TSH 0.01
    T4 35
    T3 18.9

    Is this a gravies disease?

    My doctor did not want to give me any meds as I also have a liver problem GGT 161, Alkaline 60, Alanine 78 so he put me on Atenolol just to treat my symptoms. He sais that I should have surgery as he does not want to give me any thyroid meds because of my liver.
    2 weeks later I called him to say that I am feeling very bad so he is putting me now in Topozole.

    I am scared to take any meds as he did tell me that any thyroid meds is not good for liver but now he is giving it.

    I also am diabetic type 2 but I was controlling well the diabetic and liver by diet until now. Now I cannot control anything.
    What do you think?

    Re: Tyroid blood work - what do they mean?

    You would need a TSI antibody test to know if this is Graves' disease.

    Yes, the two anti-thyroid medications have been sometimes associated with liver dysfunction, but so is untreated hyperthyroidism. According the the NIH, any adverse effects from the drugs are almost always reversed once the drug is discontinued. Permanent damage is rare.

    I can only guess, but I would assume your doctor believes the benefits of the drug are worth the risk.

    Hope you feel better soon.
