First Thyroid Panel

CMLsurvivor posted:
I am currently being treated for Chronic Mylogenous luekemia with a TKI inhibitor (Sprycel). I had my first thyroid panel done at my request for a funny feeling in my throat. My panel came back: TSH 1.507. (.55-4.78) T3 uptake 28 (22.5-37) T4. 13 (4.5-10.9) Free Tyroxine index 3.6 (1.7-4.2)

Any advice as to what this would mean? I'm a little confused by this whole thyroid issue. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

What did your doctor think about the results? My doctor goes by the TSH and Free T4. Your TSH (although a little on the lower end) and Free T4 (a little on the upper end) are within normal limits. Are you having an U/S on your thyroid? What about checking antibodies for autoimmune thyroid problems? Might get a little more info with more testing.

I'm not much help as I'm fairly new to thyroid problems (Hashimoto hypothyroidism), but wanted to say hello and good luck.
