Re: What's going on? Hashimoto's?

Hello Welcome to Thyroid Board
Unfortunately you had a bad set of tests taken but your TSH a bit on the high side would suggest that you're on the hypothyroid side. Ask to have FreeT4 tested and FreeT3 too (if possible). Based on that "freeT4" result and the range that's really "free thyroxine index" - a useless estimate, "plain" ie. total T4 gives you an inaccurate result (because it also measures the amount of hormone that's "out of use") and your T3 uptake level really has nothing to do with actual T3 levels. Endos often aren't the greatest in treating hypoT - I hope you've found a good one
