I recently had a work up for a life insurance policy and a few results came back as being high. Being that I am only 32 I wanted to check into these issues further. They did not run a thyroid panel but after realizing some of the results may be a direct correlation to thyroid issues, I realized that I had previously had thyroid labs run by my primary. I assumed they were normal as I never heard anything otherwise from the physician. I called and the results were as follows: TSH 0.97, T3 354 and T4 1.0.
Would these values be of any concern? The reason they were originally checked was per my request due to increased fatigue/lethargy but the physician seemed to think an antidepressant would resolved this. It hasnt.
