What Is The Good Number Range For A Thyroid Test
Discuss with Dr.: You need to contact the person that ordered the test to get clarification. When a lab result is just a number it is relative to a certain lab's protocols. Usually, the result will have a "normal" range after the number and if you are in that range you are fine. If not in the range then you need the person that ordered the test to interpret what that 2.63 means for you. ...Read more
Thyroid tests: Thyroid laboratory data is performed at many different medical centers and there are often differences in the technology and the results produced. When you have blood work done on your thyroid levels you should also receive the reference data for the three or four thyroid labs that have been done. Your doctor should have that data to share with you. ...Read more

Normal echo..Stress test normal..Thyroid test normal..Blood work good..Cardiac enyzmes good..Ekg shows normal heartbeat..Dr said its just fast..Good?
TSH? Probably fine.: I'm assuming the "thyroid test" you're referring to is "thyroid stimulating hormone" or tsh. This is one of the most commonly measured thyroid-related tests. The normal range depends on your lab and varies; but it's about 0.4 to 4.0. So a value of 0.64 in that case is good - if it was 64, then i'd worry! ...Read more

Your doctor?: Hi. My specialty deals with the thyroid as specialists, and I've NEVER asked a patient to interpret his/her own thyroid labs! It's not YOUR job to interpret them, it's your doctor's job! I suggest you ask your doctor to explain them (in lay terminology that you can understand); if you're not satisfied, find a new doctor who explains things better. Good luck! ...Read more
Not really bad.: The TSH level is just a test. There is no number that is really bad and all numbers can be fixed. There is a continuum of disease from mild to very symptomatic and some people may have a lot of symptoms despite relatively normal numbers. Best thing is to look at how you feel. If you feel fine then the numbers are good enough. ...Read more
Thyroid tests: In general, when interpreting thyroid tests, a high TSH is indicative of hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) and a low TSH is indicative of hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid). Your doctor may also check your free T4 and free T3 (liothyronine) levels which may be low if hypothyroid and high if hyperthyroid. That being said, the tests are not always so straightforward so make sure an MD interprets your results ...Read more
