Question High TSH AND High T3

According to the research I have done, I have hyper/hypo thyroidism.

I dont think that one body is capable of being both of those. Does anyone know what this is?

My TSH levels increased nearly 3 points in two and half weeks: 6.77
My T4 free are completely normal: 1.1
My T3 is high at: 256

I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries about three years ago. On Mercett currently, it was a recent swith starting the begining of September.

Any suggestions?

Re: High TSH AND High T3

It might be a good idea to post your ranges with your labs.
do you think you have hypo/hyper due to your symptoms?

Re: High TSH AND High T3

If you are on any estrogen/progesterone supplements for hormone replacement therapy the Total T3 and Total T4 tests are invalid and biased by these hormones. You need Free T3 and Free t4 levels checked. These are not effected by hormonal supplements. You are hypothyroid by that TSH and your MD just isn't testing your properly to show it. If you come back with a low Ft4 and high Ft3 reading then you needed to look into your adrenal and pituitary function.

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

My doctor didn't look at the T3 results. I am on birth control, because of my polycystic ovaries. I am on synthroid .05, until my next blood work comes back.

TSH: 6.77 with (0.50-4.30)
T3, Total: 256 with (97-219)
T-4 Free: 1.1 with (.8-1.8)

My blood count is low, as well, 10.3 (slightly anemic). It has steadily been dropping since 2005. Past year it dropped .7; my physician is ordering iron and B12 tests in my December lab work.

She said that the TSH levels should not be affecting my life, and neither should the blood count, BUT my GYN shows much concern for both.

Thanks for you responses!
