Dear XXXXXXX,
You have not mentioned whether you are on any treatment for Graves' disease. You have also forgotten to mention the reference range of free t4 assay. TSH is in normal range so your thyroid status apparently looks normal. I hope the free 4 is also in normal range. But I want the above mentioned details from you to get a proper perspective of the problem
Hope this helps.
