doctor. My son was born by sc at 39 weeks. Two days later a TSH test was performed with the result 18.30 ulu/ml. One month later, the TSH-s test was again 4.74 mIU/L and the free T-4 test was 1.55 ng/dl. According to the doctor, are the results normal? Are there thyroid hormone abnormalities? Thank you

hello tsalas,

TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), TSH-s (Thyroid stimulating hormone-sensitive) and FT4 (Free T4) examinations are tests to detect possible thyroid disorders, either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. Thyroid hormone is a hormone that functions to regulate metabolism in the body so that if there are abnormalities in thyroid hormone levels, especially hypothyroidism in children, it can cause impaired growth and development of the little one.

Based on the results of the laboratory examination alone, it cannot be concluded whether it is said to be normal or there are abnormalities because of its function as a supporting examination. In addition, each laboratory examination has its own normal reference value which can vary, so it is best to consult with a pediatrician to carry out an examination of your child by bringing the laboratory results that have been carried out so that it can be concluded that the state of thyroid hormone levels in your child.


I hope this information is helpful.

Regards,

dr. Irvandi
