Hello Mrs. Rara! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The tests that you mentioned are the results of tests for thyroid function. The thyroid is a gland in the neck that produces thyroid hormones to regulate the body's metabolism, so that the organs in the body can function properly. The thyroid hormone in our body consists of thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Regulating thyroid work is carried out by another hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). The entry of T4 into the organs of the body is regulated by the binding of these hormones with the binding protein. Free T4 (FT4) or free T4 is T4 that does not bind to these proteins. FT4 can enter the body's organs and regulate organ metabolism.
In patients with hyperthyroidism or thyroid hormone excess, T4 and FT4 levels rise with decreased TSH. In patients with hypothyroidism or thyroid hormone deficiency, levels of T4 and FT4 decrease with elevated TSH. In the results of the examination that you mentioned, both FT4 and TSH were still within normal limits. However, results may also depend on individual laboratory reference values. It is better if you bring these results to the doctor who asks for an examination. The doctor will explain the meaning of the test results and what next steps will be taken.
This is the information that I can convey. I hope this helps.
