Explanation Of The Results Of A Complete Blood Examination?
I want to ask, name iqbal (male) age 19. I have done a blood thyroid test in the hospital lab, the result is TSH level = 1.72 mlU / mL; T3 = u0026lt; 0, 77 nmol / L; T4 = 190.16 nmol / L. Is that normal, or is there a diagnosis of another disease that I experienced? Thank you very much
Hello Iqbal, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Thyroid is a glandular organ in the front of the neck that functions to produce thyroid hormones. This thyroid hormone has many important functions in the body, especially in regulating the body's metabolism. This thyroid gland produces several hormones including thyroxine (T4), triiodothyronine (T3), and calcitonin.
The normal range of normal thyroid homon values will depend on each laboratory. But you can use the values in the following table as a reference for the normal value of thyroid hormone.
Your TSH level of 1.72 mU / L is still within normal limits because it is still in the normal range. And your T3 and T4 values are not within the normal range. But that does not mean you have a certain disease.
Usually what can be used as a reference into the examination is the examination of TSH hormone levels. So that the TSH level is usually the determinant for the next examination. TSH levels which are in normal values can usually describe the function of thyroid hormone.
And in some journals it is written that the T3 and T4 values usually do not reflect the correct thyroid value or function. Because of that, values that are less or more than the normal range can still describe the normal function of thyroid hormone.
However, laboratory tests cannot be used as a reference to determine a person's diagnosis, it is necessary to conduct an interview regarding your medical history, physical examination, and also other supporting examinations if needed. Therefore, we advise you to discuss these results with a specialist in internal medicine for further evaluation and examination.
