Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
Is that free T4 or just T4?
If its Free T4 then it is very high.
If it is total T4 then it is within the normal reference range.
If that is your free T4 value then you should not be experiencing hypothyroid symptoms.
So, I think that is your total T4 value.
A high free T 4 value will represent thyroid over activity, which should make you anxious, loose weight and have an increased appetite.
The symptoms you are describing - fatigue and weight gain are symptoms of an underactive thyroid.
Your TSH is also within normal range.
The TSH is also in the normal range, since the reference range for TSH is 0.3 to 5.0
TSH is thyroid stimulating hormone, which stimulates the thyroid to secrete its hormones (namely, T4 and T 3).
T 4 is the hormone secreted by the thyroid.
In hyperthyroidism, TSH should decrease and T 4 should increase. In hypothyroidism, the TSH should increase and the T 4 should decrease.
Why have you rated poor service?
Did I not provide the required information to you?
Do you have more queries?
Okay, did you leave a poor rating by mistake?
Okay, is that in pmol/L?
Okay. Well, usually it is in ng/dL which are the conventional units but sometimes, they can be in pmol/L in some labs in the UK.
Anyways, if this ng/dL, then this is high and it should be evaluated.
Are you on any medication? Thyroid replacement therapy?
Yes, both the units are different, with ng/dL this is a high value, with pmol/L this is low value.
Almost to the lower end of normal in pmol/L.
If you had a thyroid under activity or over activity issue, your TSH would have been affected definitely. Because the TSH is taken as the most reliable test in the thyroid.
Since, your TSH is in the normal reference range, the thyroid can not be held accountable for the symptoms you are having.
A raised T4 would give you irritability, weight loss etc. Where as a low T4 causes tiredness, fatigue etc.
It was a pleasure.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service, if you do not have more queries.
Alright, then you're okay as far as the thyroid is concerned.
Please do leave a positive rating (5 star) for the service.
