Post Your opinion on my test results?? Pls

Hello

I recently got:

TSH =.4 range: 0.35-5.5
Free T4 = 1.04 range: 0.61-1.76

But my symptoms have been a weight gain of 55 lbs in the last year, depression, constipation and fatigue....

What do you all think?

Thanks!
Kathy

sorry had forgotten the ranges - put them in now..

I think you need more testing. With an enlarged thyroid and the symptoms you have I would request a Free T3 and thyroid antibodies testing. Your Free T4 is a little low in my opinion and your TSH is in the low part of the range.

I'll bump you up and maybe someone else will have more suggestions, but I think you need more testing.

As dea4 says, you really need the FT3 test. This is the most important thing to know. If I would have to look at it though, your FT4 could come up a little more.
