Triiodothyronine, Free, Serum 2.7 (2.3 - 4.2)
HGB ALC with MGB estimation
Alc 5.4 (4.5 - 5.7)
Your Free T4 should be about 1.42 (70% or upper 1/3) so you are low.
The Triiodothyronine (T3) is also way too low, it should be about 3.63 (70% or upper 1/3)
And your TSH is way too high.
Are you on meds? If so its time for an increase.
