... ree T4. It's a worthless "free T4 index". You must insist that your doctor test for the actual free T4 direct measurement, as well as for thyroid antibodies to TPO and Tg. ... (4 replies)
... Fasting is not required for the anti-thyroid antibodies (anti-TPO and anti-TG) or the hormone levels (TSH, free T4 and free T3). You could be normal, low or high on the hormone levels. A chest xray would be helpful to make sure the blood is not coming from the lungs since you have been a smoker a long time. It is unlikely the nodule is causing the blood, more likely from the...

... As you can see, my TSH goes from borderline to lower, then back up again. My TPO went from below 6 too 20.4 in just 2 week and then increased very slightly after that. ... (9 replies)
... Hello :wave: If you could post your lab's reference ranges for those freeTs that would be great, they're needed for interpretation. That "NOS" obviously means "not otherwise specified" (whatever that means in practice). I think your thyroid levels are still within range (your TSH certainly is) but if your freeTs are on the low side that along with your obvious symptoms would... (9 replies)

... Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone can give me a clue about some test results my husband got back from his doc. Generally, he's been feeling tired, weak. For quite some time. His TPO levels came back at 23,753 - that's right, 23 thousand, not hundred! His TSH level was elevated also at 7.77 (5.0 being high range of normal). Anybody know what causes a level this...
