Newborns With A Premature State?
Hello Niss86, thanks for asking.
As you know, the test carried out on your baby is a test to find out thyroid hormone levels. Thyroid hormone is produced by the thyroid gland and functions as a regulator of the body's metabolism. The thyroid hormone component consists of T3 and T4. Tests are conducted to determine free T3 T4 levels, because this 'free' form will directly play a role in the body's metabolism. In addition, the test also looks for TSH levels, which are hormones produced by the pituitary gland in the brain, and serves to give instructions to the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones.
Based on the results obtained in your baby, when compared with the normal range, the results are considered normal. That is, levels of T3, T4, and TSH are not excessive or not too low. However, you still need to consult the doctor who sent your child for the test. The doctor who best understands your child's condition, so that the doctor is more entitled to explain the results.
Thus the short answer that I can give, may be useful. Regards.
