Thyroid report
Can you please tell me the meaning of following comment in my thyroid report. The T3, T4 and THS in the report are 1.24, 10.30 and 5.24 respectively. Serum TSH concentrations exhibit a diurnal variation with the peak occurring during the night and the nadir occurring between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.In primary hypothyroidism, thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels will be elevated. In primary hyperthyroidism,TSH levels will be low. Elevated or low TSH in the context of normal free thyroxine is often referred to as subclinical hypo- or hyperthyroid-ism, respectively. Physiological rise in Total T3 / T4 levels is seen in pregnancy and in patients on steroid therapy. Recommended test for T3 and T4 is unbound fraction or free levels as it is metabolically active.
