What other test besides TSH

Long story short.....what other test can rule out thyroid problem? My TSH is 1.105 I had a FNA that proved negative for malignant cells, consistent with colloid goiter. Small 8mm nodule. I really need some help here. Suffering from many symptoms of thyroid problems. Any other disease's that mimic thyroid problems?

Re: What other test besides TSH

TSH is a pituitary hormone. Its level can be well within normal range, but the actual thyroid hormones can be low. Those thyroid hormones need to be measured too... the "free" portions, not the totals. If these levels are in the bottom half of their ranges, they're technically "in range" but still too low. Most people have symptoms when THs are low. These tests are free T4 and free T3.
Thyroid antibodies tests are also useful... namely, anti-TPO and anti-Tg.
