    Labs question

    I am a little confused about recent blood tests results and whether they indicate something that should be followed up.

    In August I had blood drawn twice. The first, at a regular checkup, included TSH. Results were TSH: 1.924.

    Toward the end of the month, I went to the doctor again. More blood was taken and she included three thyroid tests (not sure why):

    TSH: 2.060
    Free T4: 1.63
    T3 Uptake - 24%

    All of these seem to be well within reference ranges, but a friend mentioned that the TSH and T4 seemed high to her. I don't think I have had many of the symptoms listed here, other than some fatigue (but who doesnt have that!), and I have been on the cold side all my life (a family trait). No family history of thyroid problems that I am aware of. Is my friend correct that these results are a little troubling? Or are they within acceptable ranges (as the lab reference intervals suggest)? Any thoughts would be much appreciated!
