Good Morning. I have recently had some blood tests done

Customer Question

Good Morning.
I have recently had some blood tests done as I have been feeling a bit under the weather. The test show that I have a THS 4.71 and T4 14. Having given this some thought I find that I can tick almost every single symptom of Hypothyroidism but my GP has told me that I do not have an under active Thyroid.I would value your opinion.

Unfortunately, to be able to provide any interpretation of the T4 would require this knowledge, as it could be high, low, or normal. A total T4 of 14 mcg/dl would be a high level, while a total T4 of 14 nmol/L would be low, and a free T4 of 14 pmol/L would be normal. The TSH is only measured in one set of units, but a full interpretation would require the additional information about the T4. Can you obtain a copy of the lab report?
