I have received my bloods

T3.......22.0 pmol/L

TSH....0.01 mu/L

T4.......31.6 pmol/L

Also one of my LFT

Alkaline Phosphatase......249 iu/L

Are these normal in a Overactive Thyroid?

    Dr. Toft, Consultant Physician, states in the British Thyroid Foundation newsletter Issue No. 23 that normal ranges are: T4 (10 – 25) and TSH (0.15 – 3.5). He also states that "the correct dose is that which restores good health; in most patients this will be associated with a level of T4 in the blood towards the upper part of the normal range or even slightly high and a TSH level in the blood which is in the lower part of the normal range.

    You need to see your consultant, I suspect you are correct.

      I think each lab has different ranges for normal.  The ranges fpr normal I have in Canada for T3 and T4 are nowhere near what you have posted.  That's why I feel that each patient should get and keep copies of their lab blood work where ranges for normal for that particular lab are posted right beside their individual result.

    You need to always obtain and keep for  your own records copies of your lab reports that show your result and the ranges for normal for each result beside your results.  The results for thyroid tests you have posted would be considered high out of the normal range in Canada.  I am not sure about the alk phos result but if you obtain an actual lab report, you will see where you fall on the scale with it.  Are you on treatment for hyperthyroidism?
