    New to this - help interpret results?

    Hi everyone,

    My doctor ordered a thyroid panel for me. I just got back the results. When I look at my results they seem to be within the ref. intervals but I don't know how to read this stuff. Can someone help me? I won't be able to talk to my doctor until Monday and I am extremely curious. I have a lot of symptoms.

    Thyroid Panel With TSH Results Ref. Interval
    TSH 0.786 0.450-4.500
    Thyroxine (T4) 8.2 4.5-12.0
    T3 Uptake 32 24-39
    Free Thyroxin Index 2.6 1.2-4.9

    Thank you for your help!

    Unfortunately, that's the worst thyroid panel that could have been ordered. It's mostly a mish-mash of inaccurate estimated levels that aren't useful to know.

    I'm sorry your question got overlooked since Saturday. Today is Monday. Have you had a chat with your doctor? If he told you that you do not have a thyroid problem, please ask him to repeat the bloodwork with the more accurate panel of tests - TSH, free T4, free T3, anti-TPO, and anti-thyroglobulin tests. These will indicate your true thyroid status.
