368646 tn?1208397487 Last year an AACE task force reviewed available data and current trends in practice, and updated the AACE Guidelines for Clinical Practice for the Evaluation and Treatment of Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism published in the November/December 2002 issue of Endocrine Practice. The task force also suggested that in patients on thyroxine replacement therapy, which is stated in the guidelines as "The target TSH level should be between 0.3 and 3.0 uIU/mL".
Avatar f tn And, believe it or not, we thank you for that. But to clarify, the recent AACE/ATA Hypothyroidism guidelines do not state that TSH is the ONLY screening, just the best in most cases. The guidelines also state that "We encourage medical professionals to use this information in conjunction with their best clinical judgment. The presented recommendations may not be appropriate in all situations.
Avatar f tn I felt so much better than I feel now, back when I first went on dual medication in 2009. At that time, I was on 50 mcg Levothyroxine and had every symptom of hypothyroidism possible, but my TSH was low in the normal range, so no endo would treat me until finally they found nodules on both lobes and gave me T4 to try to control them. I ended up in the hospital after a panic attack lasted for 4 days, and with severe depression , resistant to all antidepressant meds.
Avatar m tn They pretty much blew me off by saying that I should withhold any further questions until they republish their guidelines sometime later. I'm not really sure the AACE is the best place to be talking with, since they don't really seem to have any great influence over labs and doctors. I say this since most labs and doctors are still using the old TSH range 8 years after the AACE recommended it be changed.

I was doing a lot of research on the Internet and asked her if she was going by the old window or the newer one. She was using the older one and didn't want to get my level lower than 4.1. She scheduled me for a visit with a local encrinologist who explained everything she had already told me. He was going by the old window too.

The FT3 and FT4 tests will further confirm that, by their being in the lower part of their reference ranges. These tests then further useful as markers to show your progress as you start taking thyroid meds and progress to symptom relief.
Avatar n tn There are some good references out there that may help you understand what the current thinking is. Google the AACE Guidelines to Male Hypogonadism. This is a little bit dated but I think if you want hard technical information on this condition that will be a good reference. Its not easy reading however. If you want a book that is geared for the patient I liked "The Testosterone Syndrome" by Dr E. Shrippen. He writes in an easy to read style that I think you will enjoy.
Avatar n tn I started going to an allergist because I've always had environmental allergies. He believed that my pain was caused by allergies and that in turn was throwing my thyroid off. Great, I finally had answers! I was so hoping that would be my miracle cure, but after 2 years on sublingual (under the tongue) drops to acclimate my body to my allergies, I have not been helped at all with my joint pains, nor my other allergy symptoms actually.
