Every lab has its own reference range for each result depending on the equipment they use. I can give you normal results for my laboratory, but they won't necessarily be the exact same as yours.

Normal TSH is 0.3 to 3.0 mIU/L) [yours 0.29]

Normal free T4 is 12-25 pmol/L [yours 20.80]

Normal free T3 is 3-8 pmol/L [your 4.75]

These results are not concerning.

Normal chloride is 95-105 mmol/L [yours 94]

Normal sodium is 135-145 mmol/L [yours 110]

Both of these are on the low side. Common causes are vomiting and/or diarrhea. Other causes are diuretics, consumption of too many fluids, vomiting/diarrhea, underactive thyroid (not in your case), and a few other things.

Please let me know if you need additional information about this.

Kind regards,
