Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service. We understand your complaints and concerns. Thyroid is one of the glands that produce thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone functions in the process of cell metabolism in the body, regulates the heart rate, growth of cells in the body, etc.
Deficiency or excess thyroid hormone will cause interference with the body. Hyperthyroidism (excess thyroid hormone), hypothyroidism (thyroid hormone deficiency), thyroid cancer and other thyroid diseases will cause an imbalance of thyroid hormone levels in the body and cause disturbing symptoms.
If thyroid problems are suspected, thyroid hormone testing can be one of the instructions to ascertain the cause. TSH, FT4 and FT3 are types of thyroid hormone that are often checked for levels in the body.
Related to your question, your mother's thyroid hormone test results are still in normal levels based on the reference value from the laboratory that checks your mother.
If hyperthyroidism is suspected, FT4 levels tend to be higher with low TSH values. Conversely, if the FT4 level is low whereas TSH has a high level, there is a high possibility of a hypothyroid condition. But in diagnosing a disease, laboratory results cannot be used as a benchmark in full. History or information related to complaints / symptoms and a patient's disease history and direct physical examination are important things that must be known. Therefore a complete clinical data of the patient is needed to determine which direction the disease is being experienced by your mother.
It is advisable to do a consultation and examination directly with a specialist in internal medicine so that your mother's condition can be evaluated thoroughly.
The following recommendations for maintaining the health of your mother's body:
Conduct a healthy lifestyle Eating healthy and nutritious food Regular exercise Sufficient body fluids Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption Avoid stress and fatigue Rest enough Follow the advice of the doctor who treats you before All the information I can do, hopefully it helps
