Re: test results - comments

Only one of those tests is for thyroid, and that's TSH. It is higher than most healthy peoples' average TSH, so it might indicate low thyroid function (hypothyroid). You need more tests to know for sure.
If you can get your doctor to order another TSH along with free T4, free T3, and thyroid antibodies, the results will tell you for sure if you have a thyroid problem or not. If you can't get him to order them, he doesn't know what he doesn't know... and you may be better off with another opinion.
