What is normal range for TSH and free T4?

TSH normal values are 0.5 to 5.0 mIU/L. Pregnancy, a history of thyroid cancer, history of pituitary gland disease, and older age are some situations when TSH is optimally maintained in different range as guided by an endocrinologist. FT4 normal values are 0.7 to 1.9ng/dL.

What are good levels of TSH and T4?

If TSH is abnormal, measurement of thyroid hormones directly, including thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) may be done to further evaluate the problem. Normal test range for an adult: 0.40 – 4.50 mIU/mL (milli-international units per liter of blood).

What is a good free T4 level?

The normal range for free T 4 in adults is 0.8 to 1.8 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). A level of free T 4 that is higher than normal could mean you have an overactive thyroid. Conditions associated with hyperthyroidism include Graves disease, an autoimmune disorder.

What level of free T4 indicates hypothyroidism?

TSH > 4.0/mU/L with a low T4 level indicates hypothyroidism. If your TSH is > 4.0 mU/L and your T4 level is normal, this may prompt your physician to test your serum anti-thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO) antibodies.

What does a high TSH reflex free T4 mean?

Tests measuring free T4 – either a free T4 (FT4) or free T4 index (FTI) – more accurately reflect how the thyroid gland is functioning when checked with a TSH. The finding of an elevated TSH and low FT4 or FTI indicates primary hypothyroidism due to disease in the thyroid gland.

What is a normal T4 level for a woman?

A normal total T4 level in an adult is in the range of 5.0 to 12.0 mcg/dL (microgram/deciliter). High T4 indicates hyperthyroidism and low T4 indicates hypothyroidism.

What if T4 is high and TSH is normal?

A normal TSH and normal T4 show a normal thyroid. A low TSH and high T4 generally means an overactive thyroid. A high TSH and low T4 means an underactive thyroid.

What does it mean when free T4 is high?

High levels of any of these tests (total T4, free T4, or free T4 index) may indicate an overactive thyroid, also known as hyperthyroidism. Low levels of any of these tests (total T4, free T4, or free T4 index) may indicate an underactive thyroid, also known as hypothyroidism.

What is TSH with reflexive free T4?

TSH with Reflex T4 means a TSH test and if the results are less than or greater than the test range, (usually 0.1-5.0 depending on your lab) they want a Free T4 done in addition to the TSH. or in other words, TSH with reflex to T4 just means that they’ll run a T4 test only if the TSH comes back out of range.

Is your free T4 really in the normal range?

Typical results in adults for the free T4 test generally range from 0.9 to 2.4 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL). Like total T4 in adults, free T4 also varies in children according to age.

What are the normal levels of TSH?

The typical range of reference for TSH levels is anywhere between 0.4 and 4.9 milliunits per liter (mU/L). A recent study suggests that the normal range should be more like 0.45 to 4.12 mU/L. TSH can vary wildly based on your age, sex, and stage of life.

What is a TSH RFX on abnormal to free T4 test?

Normal TSH: Tsh rfx means that if the TSH level was abnormal, the lab would then automatically check your thyroid level with a free t4. Since your TSH was normal, the free T4 was not done. The glucose of 56 is low.
