This answer was rated:

What do these results mean?

TSH, 3rd Generation results .01 L out of range

T4Thyroxine Total 10.7 in range

Present med's 40mg lexapro daily
if your TSH is low while T4 is in normal range this is called subclinical hyperthyroidism. no treatment required at this time but should have a repeat test in 6-8 weeks with complete thyroid profile including free t 3 , t4 and tsh.

What does hyperthroidism feel like...

what does it lead to?

hyperthyroidism will lead to tremors, palpitation, diarrhea, anxiety, warm skin, thin hair, rapid heart rate. it doesnt lead to anything... it is a disease in itself ... not a cancer etc.

What would be the treatment if the test is repeated with the same results?


Is there anything I can control to pretvent a worsening of the disease?

nothing for you to do to stop progress. if the results are same ... no treatment needed. treatment is done only if your TSH is low and t3/ T4 are high. as long as t3/T4 are in normal range no treatment is needed.

so how could I get this?
it can be due to graves disease, inflamamtion of the thyroid or nodular disease... right now its not a disease its subclinical.
