Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

As per the test results, most of it is to a certain extent normal. T4 and TSH levels are within normal range, although the T4 is slightly above the normal range, which means there is a slightly excessive conversion of T4 to T3 taking place.

But do not worry about this, as per her age and diet, such a report can be seen. All is well as of now. But regular check ups will be required. Do not worry, keep the monitoring at a regular 3-6 month period, so your doctor can catch any abnormalities (if they occur) at an early stage. But I am sure she will be fine. Take care.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
