Hello doctor,

My reports read as follows:

  1. Total triiodothyronine (T3) CLIA 91 ng/dl. Reference range 60 to 200.
  2. Total thyroxine (T4) CLIA 7.8 µg/dl. Reference range 4.5 to 12.
  3. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) CLIA 0.74 µIU/ml. Reference range 0.3 to 5.5.

What should I decipher from this?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query and saw all your reports which you have attached (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • Your thyroid function test is absolutely within the normal limits. Continue with the same dose of Thyronorm (Thyroxine) as usual.
  1. Your serum creatinine is slightly in the upper range of normal. So, I suggest you drink eight to 10 glasses of water daily.
  2. Take a low-fat diet and avoid junk food.
  3. Exercise daily since your cholesterol levels are slightly high.
  4. You have a vitamin-D deficiency. So, you must take tablet Vitamin D 50,000 IU once a week for four weeks and then once every two weeks for another one month and then once a month for three months.
  5. Take tablet Calcium 500 mg once daily.
  • Try to space these medications from the thyroid medications by at least four hours.

Hope you find my advice beneficial. Good luck.
