    just got some lab work done with a new doctor but cant figure out the results. specifically how to convert pg/ml to to ng/dl on my free test levels, i guess. just multiply by 10, right?

    free test was 15.9 pg/ml normal range is 9.3 to 26.5
    tsh was 2.522 uiu/ml normal range is 0.350 to 5.500

    1 pg = 1000 ng so 1 pg/mL = 0,001 ng/mL and 1 mL = 0,01dL = 0,001 L (supposing d is for deci and not deca).

    So for 15,9 pg/mL * 0,001ng/0,01dL = 0,0159 ng/0,01dL= 1,59ng/dL

    Don't you have a doctor, or did you send your blood away?

    i was under the impression that normal levels ranged from 300 ng/dl to 1200 ng/dl. a couple months ago had blood work done by a different hospital and my free test level was 194 ng/dl. My general care doctor says my levels are on the lower end but not enough to warrant hrt.

    My doctor sorta explained what was going on but not to the full extent that i was wanting. plus he told me my options for weightloss were either surgery or a group based calorie restriction program.:ugh:

    What is important is the lab's range since they can vary from lab to lab.
