Aging: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, The weight gain may be due to general slowing of metabolism with aging. Your thyroid function test results seem okay. You may need to reduce your intake of food and exercise more.
