- •Low-normal thyroid function within the euthyroid range may impact on health.
- •Whether differences in TSH, FT4 and FT3 influence life expectancy is unknown.
- •2431 euthyroid subjects were followed for 13 years; 218 subjects died.
- •Life expectancy did not vary according to tertiles of TSH, FT4 and FT3.
- •Low-normal thyroid function does not influence life expectancy in euthyroid subjects.
