Thread: What do results mean?

    What do results mean?

    I was diagnosed with diabetes and hypothyroidism in September. My latest results are Free T4 15.9 pmol/L 12 - 22 and TSH 12.24 mlU/L 0.3 -5.0 The doctor seemed puzzled and told me to continue to take 50 mg of Levothyroixine. I don't know anything about thyroid disease, so are these results ok or not? Sorry I am so ignorent

    ft4 are in normal level
    tsh is high, which means you have hypothyroidism, as you know.
    keep taking meds, if tsh is still high next time you take blood tests your doc. will give you higher dosage to put your tsh down!

    Free T4 15.9 pmol/L 12 - 22 , this 12-22 are ref values, with them you know if your tests are ok
    TSH 12.24 mlU/L 0.3 -5.0, just like here, if your tsh was let's say 3.2 than it would be okay since ref values are 0.3-5.0
