QUYENBUI - The first test doctors usually order to detect thyroid dysfunction is a TSH test. If your TSH level is abnormal, the doctor will usually order a total T4 or free T4 test to confirm the diagnosis. A total T3 or free T3 test may be ordered as well.

You can find in-depth explanations for each of your tests, including the background on the test, a sample report, how the test is used and common questions at the following link: http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/conditions/thyroid-3.html

If you have additional questions after reviewing this information there is a form on the site that you can use to send your questions directly to a trained laboratory professional. You would most likely get better and faster results by asking the staff at the laboratory where you were tested, or your doctor.

We aren't able to interpret your results. In general, reference ranges are specific to the laboratory that produces the test results. For many analyzes, different laboratories use different kinds of equipment and different kinds of testing methods. This means that each laboratory must establish its own reference ranges using data from its own equipment and methods. The laboratory should have supplied your test results with an accompanying reference range on the laboratory report.

When is your next appointment with your doctor?
