Brief Answer:
Want to know more.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.

I want to know-
- What are your symptoms for which you have been advised these tests.
- Any other tests done if so there results including T3, T4, TSH.
- Any thyroid swelling present.
- Are you on any medicines regularly.

If you have no thyroid swelling, no symptoms of hypothyroidism (weight gain, lethargy, cold inolerance, menstrual irregularities) and normal T3, T4, TSH there is no thyroid disorder.

Hope this helps you.
