The doctor gave me a copy of my blood tests but I'm having trouble reading them - he said they were ok but I notice my Serum TSH level has been put down as LO 0.26mIU/L ? My Serum free T4 level has been put down as 23.8pmol/L ? I'd be grateful if someone in the know could disipher the readings as they are double dutch to me? please get in touch.

  • Well, if you have a copy of the test results, it hi-lights the low tests. If two are low, I'd ask for a referral to an endocrinologist for a second opinion.
