Question Have a question about thyroid blood tests

On the bloodtests results does it usually say if the result is high or low? I am talking about the tsh and freet4.Mine has the L at the end of the letters. I don't have them with me. Left them at the docs.

Hope you can make sense of this

Re: Have a question about thyroid blood tests

I have mine here in front of me and at the end of the range there is something like "umol/L" or "pmol/L" L= litre (I think!). There is another column where they mark if you're outside of the normal limits (its called Outside Normal Limits coincidentally enough ). This is how all my lab results look - then again I'm in Canada !

Thank you Nat. These bloodtests are all different aren't they. Have you ever visited the www.thyroiduk.org website? I enjoyed reading it.

Nope, Betty, I don't think I've been to that one. Now it looks like I'll have something to do this afternoon
