Patient :TSH & T4 Results
3.630 uIU/mL (TSH) and 1.12 ng/dL (T4 Free Direct) - Am I in trouble? I decided to get a TSH and T4 test because of a very severe weight swing last month.
Symptoms: Recently, I had a severe reaction to something I ate. I have severe allergic reactions to sulfur or any sulfur based medicines. Last month, I had a severe allergic reaction to something that I ate and took Benadryl to address the issue. During that allergic reaction, I had swelling of my lower extremities. The edema was terrible and my weight soared up to 20 to 25 pounds of water. My mother had a thyroid issue so I ordered myself a TSH and T4 test.
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood your reports and history.
Your Free T4 and TSH reports are absolutely within normal limits. So no worry as far as the Thyroid functions are concerned.
The allergic reaction can cause any problems including the ones you have mentioned like swelling of the lower extremities, but increasing the weight by 20 to 25 pounds is rare to know.
I hope you had not taken Nimesulide as this can give such severe reactions of edema as it is derivative of sulfa.
I would advise you to have a clinical evaluation, examination by a Doctor and further tests like Kidney functions, liver functions, cardiac and general check up to see what would have been the reasons for having such a severe edema and to get an appropriate treatment.
I hope this answer helps you, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you need to or if you feel that there is a gap of communications.
