Please help me with these?

Hi to everyone, I've been lurking for about a month or so trying to find out more about thyroid issues, I swear I have one but the Dr. says "all is normal".

Can you all tell me what you think? I don't know how to really figure this out.

THYROID STUDIES

TSH 0.784 (0.300-5.000) this seems rather low to me but I have no idea what that means exactly.

T4 10.3 (5.5-12.0) this seems a bit on the higher side of 'normal'

SPECIAL THYROID STUDIES

FREE T-3 3.3 (2.4-4.5)
FREE T4 1.30 (0.80-1.80)

I have a whole host of symptoms and feel like crapola most of the time, any help would be greatly appreciated on this.

Thanks so very much in advance

Re: Please help me with these?

I think you need to have the thyroid antobodies testing done.

That test for the auto-immune disease called Hashimotos.

That will make your thyroid levels go up and down (and make you feel pretty bad). That could account for the low TSH and the Free T's being in the middle of the 'normal range'.

Also, I'd want these test done (and compare your numbers to optimal ranges, NOT just the 'normal range' listed on the lab report)...

B12
Vit D
Ferritin.
