  • There are multiple thyroid tests, and the values mean something different with each one. I believe TSH is the most commonly run test, but if a doctor is really concerned about your thyroid function they will usually run several of the tests available and use the results from all the tests together to get a better picture of what is going on. After the blood tests they may recommend a scan of your thyroid before which you will drink iodine stained with dye.

    The normal ranges at most labs for blood tests are:
    THS - between 0.5 and 5.5, though some doctors prefer results between 0.3 and 3.0
    Total T4 - between 4.5 and 12.5
    Free T4 - between 0.7 and 2.0
    Total T3 - between 80 and 220
    Free T3 - between 2.3 and 4.2

  • I should also tell you I got those figures from About.com when I was trying to figure out my own thyroid test results. GL!
