Comments : Reduction in TSH noted in few days. Kindly correlate with Treatment history or any other comorbid condition.
Interpretation : Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
TSH controls the biosynthesis and release of thyroid hormones T4 and T3. It is a sensitive measure of thyroid function
and helps in assessing true metabolic status and screening for euthyroidism, hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
TSH may be normal in pregnancy, phenytoin therapy, recent rapid correction of hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism,
and in central hypothyroidism (in the absence of hypothalamic or pituitary disease, normal TSH excludes primary
TSH may not be useful to evaluate thyroid status of hospitalized ill patients. Approximately 3 months of treatment of
hypo and hyperthyroidism; FT4 is the test of choice. Lag time of 6-8 weeks is required for normalization of TSH after
initiation of thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
Dopamine or high doses of glucocorticoids may cause false normal values in primary hypothyroidism and may suppress
TSH in nonthyroid illness. Rheumatoid factor, human antimouse antibodies, heterophile antibodies, and thyroid
hormone autoantibodies may produce spurious results, especially in patients with autoimmune disorders (<10%).
TSH has a diurnal rhythm, with peaks at 2:00 to 4:00 am and troughs at 5:00 to 6:00 pm. with ultradian variations.
