Lab Results Need Interpretation

I had the right side of my thyroid removed. No cancer found. Here are my lab results

My FT4 result was .63 with a range of .51-1.75 ng/dl
TSH result 2.07 with a range of .24 - 4.82 uIU/mL

Can anyone tell me if this falls in normal ranges?

Thank you

No, not really. Your FT4 is pretty low. If you have symptoms of hypothyroidism, you would benefit from supplementing with prescription thyroid hormone.

Re: Lab Results Need Interpretation

I'm a newbie here, so I can't be of tons of help. But from what I've read, thats a pretty low FT4. The range on my lab results actually goes from 0.8-2.2. The TSH is higher, but still within "normal range". However, I've read that a TSH above 2 will make you feel sluggish, and people usually feel best within the 1 range. Some new studies as of 2003 have suggested the TSH range actually be moved to 0.3-3.0. So some doctors disagree on what the optimal range lab results have the same range though.
