Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to help neonatologists to interpret the thyroid hormone results accurately, and also to provide reference ranges and/or nomograms of FT4 (free thyroxine) and thyrotropin against gestational age at postnatal 1 week and 1 month in order to assess thyroid function in AGA (appropriate for gestational age) neonates in intensive care unit.
