Question Query re blood results (Thyroid)

I had blood tests done as part of my RA routine and noticed the following mentioned. Can anyone advise me if these are normal, high or low?

TSH 1.87 mIU/1 ( 0.20 - 5.00 )
Free T4 19.5 pmo1/1 ( 9 - 21 )
GFR >59

It also states:

*TFT requested-no therapy

*GFR in CKD stage 3b range. I have no idea what any of this means can you help clarify?

Re: Query re blood results (Thyroid)

Sorry, I am not familiar with too many other blood tests other than thyroid.

I know I would feel great with your thyroid labs - other people might have some hyper symptoms.

If you have racing heart, insomnia, unexplained weight loss, anxiety, and/or tremor, you might want to speak with your doctor about this.

Re: Query re blood results (Thyroid)

Thanks for your speedy Sammy64, it's put my mind at rest. Strange thing is though, have tingling in my fingers and often cold when no one else is but also cannot tolrate he heat. Complication is, I have rheumatoid arthritis as well which confuses everything.
Thanks again for your help.
