Hello Marian,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Do you have the exact values of the lab tests?

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 4 years ago.
I had asked for some further information. but you are apparently not currently online.

Yes, this is possible, and it is also possible that the next blood test will show that the thyroid level is low. The primary cause of thyroid disease is due to an autoimmune inflammation of the thyroid. In some people, when the inflammation first starts, it will cause the thyroid to release excessive amounts of thyroid, but with continued inflammation, the thyroid becomes more damaged and exhausts its stored thyroid hormone, at which point the thyroid blood tests will indicate that the level is low.

If you have the actual values of the blood tests, a more specific answer can be made.

If you have any further questions, please let me know.
