Question What does my Thyroid levels mean

I have gained weight, feel tired, as if when I wake up I do not want to even get out of bed for the lack of energy. My body is going further and further down. I am a 32 yr old female and was diagnosed with colitis. Since then my thyroid has shown the following levels:
TSH 2.88

Total T3 194
Free T3 314

Total T4 13.4
Free T4 1.1

Thyroid peroxidase antibodies <10
Insulin 11C Peptide 0.8
c reactive protein 1.69

If anyone knows if the levels are off and I should seek medication through a physician please let me know.

Hoping to feel better,
edhw

Hello-

Your ranges need to go with your results.

free t3 314 Range(230-420)
total t4 13.4 Range(4.5-12.5)
free t4 1.1 Range(0.8-1.8)

Based on your symptoms and your TSH of 2.88, my doctor would be willing to try a trial treatment for hypothyroidism to see if it helps. The other tests (FT3 and FT4 in particular) would support that. I hope your doctor will. If not, I would get hard copies of the labs and see another doctor. I wish I had checked into this and found treatment when I was much younger because I know my life quality would have been better.
