Firstly, some test results:
TSH 2.8 (0.4 - 4.0) High
T4 74 (58 - 154) Low
FT4 12 (12 - 22) Low
FT3 6.88 (2.8 - 6.5) High
FT4:FT3 ratio 1.8 (2.0 - 4.5) Low
RT3 0.30 (0.14 - 0.54) OK
Anti bods both less than 30.
I've read somewhere about the ratio of ft4 and ft3 but where? Can anyone help with this and why is it important?
Mostly though was the comment on the reverse of the page stating, 'Higher than optimal TSH. Suspect low grade/sub clinical hypothryoidism since 'TSH LEVEL IS THE MOST SENSITIVE INDICATOR OF THYROID FUNCTION'.
Really! Even Genova is using the TSH as a marker and noting it as the most sensitive indicator? This doesn't help us at all does it?
