Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Please do not panic.I understand your concern.
American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) recommends a range of 0.3 - 3.0 mIU/L as a normal range of TSH.
FT4 normal levels 0.8 -2.8 ng/dL.
So there is no reason to worry.
Your child has a very nice weight for her age.
Enjoy your new member of the family and take good care of her.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
