Blood test says TSH rfx on abnormal to free T4 -349829 and TSH 0.035, T4 free (direct) 1.26 what does this mean ?

Blood test says TSH rfx on abnormal to free T4 -349829 and TSH 0.035, T4 free (direct) 1.26 what does this mean ?

Hard to say...: It is difficult to say without knowing the units of measurement. For example a free T4 of 1.26 ng/l is normal but 1.26 pmol/l is quite low. A TSH value of 0.035 is defintely low and may indicate an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). Consultation with your doctor or an endocrinologist is recommended. ...Read more

My blood test shows normal tsh. Does this mean the rest of my hormones like estrogen/ Prog r most likely balanced?

My blood test shows normal tsh. Does this mean the rest of my hormones like estrogen/ Prog r most likely balanced?

Not necessarily: No, the thyroid operates within it's own system. It is true though that your entire body needs adequate amounts of thyroid hormone to function normally. Just because you have normal thyroid levels does not necessarily mean you are ovulating and having regular menses (which implies normal estrogen/progesterone levels). Most menopausal women have normal thyroid levels and yet very low estrogen/P4 ...Read more
