I just got a copy of my lab results from my GP. I have a Free T4 of a 0.89 and a TSH, Sensitive of a 4.19. What does it all mean? My GP put me on Snythroid 50 mg once daily. Thank you in advance for caring, taking the time to share!
Hi, I'm not brilliant with the test result reference ranges over there in the USA, but I think it looks like you have an underactive thyroid, your thyroid isn't working as well, so they give you the medication to replace the thyroxine that your body isn't making enough of. Hope this helps. But wait for some replies off more experienced people to be sure.
