Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I understand your concern.

Your TSH report is perfectly normal. Nothing to worry at all.

Note the text that is given below the TSh report is nothing but some specifications regarding utility of TSH in assessing thyroid function. The same note will be given to all the people who get their TSH done, irrespective of whether the report is normal or not. So please donot think that note is specific to you -it isnt. It is a general information note thats all.

I hope your doubts are cleared. If you have any more doubts get back to me.

Regards.
