1 Can you please specify when the blood was taken from the baby?
( at what age?)

2 Was it done as part of routine screening test?

3 please write the normal reference range given by the lab as mentioned n the report.

In newborns less than 630 nanogram per deci litre is normal
( higher range is seen in pre term babies)

TSH also you send the reference range in your lab.
Usually, upto10 I U is normal in newborns.
It should be done after 4-5 days of birth.
