F4 And TSH Results In 1 Month Infants?
My baby is 1 month and 18 days old. F4 results 19.45 with reference values 12-26 pmol / L and TSH results 6.14 with reference values 0.55 – 6.7 uIU / mL. Is it normal?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Examination of FT4 and TSH in blood aims to assess the function of the thyroid gland, for example in cases of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, iodine deficiency, benign or malignant tumors of the thyroid gland, and so on. Indeed, interference with the function of the thyroid gland can occur to anyone, baby is no exception. Not infrequently, thyroid gland disorders in infants do not cause typical symptoms. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct a comprehensive examination, ranging from in-depth interviews related to the health status of the mother and father, pregnancy history, a thorough physical examination of the baby, and several other supporting tests.
At first glance, judging by the results of the examination that your baby is undergoing, it does not appear that there are significant abnormalities. However, you need to know, that the laboratory examination is only supporting, so it can not stand alone. You need to return the results of your baby's examination to the doctor or pediatrician who examined it before, so that the results are confirmed with other examinations that he has done before. That way, doctors can provide the best treatment in accordance with the conditions.
